I am new to the sight and am trying to find out what beginner surfboard to get, and was hopeful everyone here could help. I've been body boarding for 2-3 yrs, and want to get into surfing. I am 6ft tall, and weigh 210lbs. I rented a surftech softtop board last weekend with the following dimensions: 8' x 21.50" x 3.13" and was in the water for 1.5 hrs, i caught about 5-8 waves, and was able to kneel on the board and crouched a bit. I did notice the board did seem a bit wobbly side to side. So I was wondering what surfboard i should look at? Below are also a few boards that i am looking at currently & considering purchasing one of. Thoughts? suggestions on boards? or other boards you'd recommend im overlooking? As well is there much of a difference between getting a board that is 22.5" wide compared to 22.25" or 3"? Sorry for all the questions, but trying to learn Thanks for everyones help and thoughts! Also, is there a preference between fiberglass (pu) and epoxy style boards?, pros, cons?
Which of these boards standout, pros, cons, shape, style, thoughts, etc..?
