I'm a rookie to the game looking to get toes wet.
22 - 190lbs - 6'2
I'm going to be surfing in Long Beach, NY and hopefully 2-3 times a week for this summer but I'm very new having only had one lesson years back.
In any case I've been doing my homework and I'm nearing a decision on my first board.. so gimme a hand!
I can get this Pope Bisect for about $350
And the travel factor is definitely a plus... but I suppose the condition and durability are a bit iffy?
Or I've been offered a 7'0" McCoy Nugget as seen here (about $400 for this one):

Obviously I'm seeing it's a "big guy board" but is it actually a malibu or a minimal? Reviews seem fairly positive but I'm not sure what to go with.
Any advice is appreciated
