IMO when learningits wave count thats important, all you learn as a learner ona longboard is just as usefull , if adapted , on shorter boards.
If your not catching waves your not going to learn anything.
Thanks for the info on the stone/pound/kilo ratio. I figure that puts him at about 209 lbs. I would longboard until skilled, then transition to a shortboard if my heart went in that direction.
