So I went up to Seattle to visit my sister and she took my surfing in Oregon, and also paddle boarding in Seattle. I fell in love with surfing and didn't want to come home! I am from Galveston, Texas and never really thought about going surfing down there simply because of the waves. But I see people doing it and hear about people getting up early to go surf and I've always wanted to do it.Now that I've tried it, I wanna make the step in getting a board.
So my question is, what would be a good beginner board for me to catch some waves down in Galveston?!?
I'm about 5'8" and 145lbs, My sister recommended a 8'6" longboard....what are you ideas???
