Hey all I'm Ash and I'm dead keen to hear some advice on getting my first board.
I'm 5,6 and weigh just over 50kg and have been borrowing mates boards
Until I could afford to get my own. I'm learning to surf on Manly and the Northern Beaches
Of Sydney. Am trying to surf 2-4 times a wk at the moment to get better fast Have used all sorts from a 8ft4mini mal to a 7ft foamie
and can finally consistently pop up yay! While some people have said get a foamie, others say get used to the feeling of being on a hard board quicker, epoxy more durable and to get something like an Nsp fun board 7ft something range as I will want to do more
Than what I can with a foamie very soon and they will have resale value in manly cus can scrape old wax off and sell for $300ish with original price of 525.
I ideally want to get to shortboards and duck diving as quick as I can but know u need to start long and
Know I'm no where ready for a shortboard just yet. Hate turtle rolling and have tiny little t Rex arms that can't even carry massive boards let alone fight to get out the back.
Going to buy a board with my next pay so would love as much feedback as I can get to
Help me make a decision!
Many thanks guys!
