I've been surfing since this summer at Westport with two friends also starting out. We've gone out about 6 times total in Fall along with this current Spring. Anyway i just bought my first Medium Tall wetsuit online today from Oregon the Excel hooded 3/4 i've asked around and this seems to be the best choice for my local area surfing.
Anyway i'm hooked and want to buy two things now:
Firstly Booties, i spoke with an instructor and he recomended i get smaller booties rather than bigger.... what should i do ? my foot is really wide but is about a 9.5 in length obviously my only chocie in sufer booties is a size 9 or 10 which should i get ? My shoes size is a 10 with a bit of finger in space in the toe.
Secondly a surf board, i've heard i should get a funboard i've looked on this site for them. I currently stand at 6'0 foot even without shoes on and 155 LBS. What length board should i get to progress steadly ? Since i shelled out so much for a good wetsuit i want to be a bit cheaper on a board until i get better.
