Hey everyone. I'm really going to try not to ask questions that haven't already been asked yet. I went looking through the forum, but i still definitey have some questions if anyonen can help. I've wanted to learn how to surf for the longest time, and hopefully very soon I'll get the chance. I just need some places to start from. I live in North Carolina, and of course i'm really not sure where to go, for example, etc etc.
anyways, here i go.
* first of all, IS it really okay to try to learn by yourself? it it harder without ? and should you at all ? ( i'm not really sure i have other friends who want to learn like i do) because i've read that you should probably go out with a friend that is learning, too.
* this may seem dumb ... but , do you guys keep your eyes opened underwater? ( i guess i havent been to the beach, only to the pool, and know chlorine stings, but does salt hurt?) j/w.
* been doing a little research on the boards .... i understand that probably a longboard is best to start out on ? i'm 5'4 and 125 pounds female. also, what is the price range, for say, a used board? i am clueless here ! i was thinkin about checkin out the surf shops when i head to the beach this weekend, but am still wary about what i may need to look for.
Thanks in advance for ANy input to help me out. i nEEd it ! haha.
