I'm fairly new to surfing (about 2 years, but haven't gone out that often until lately).
I have a 10' Trident long board, and just got a 7'2 fun shape board (custom shaped to float my weight) (I'm 5'10 220lbs.).
I like both boards, but I think I'm still a little to newbie to ride the 7'2 for my size.
Also with the 7'2 not being epoxy, I'm already beating it up pretty bad after a couple sessions...
So... I'm looking for a middle of the road (sized) epoxy board with good float.
There's a shop locally that has an Anacapa bandit 7'6 and 8'0, and also someone selling a used 8' Channel Islands Waterhog
I have heard great things about the water hog, but not sure if I want go with an 8' board.
I had a 7'9 bic when i first started, and even though I know they are totally different boards then the bic, I'm still not sure I want to go any longer then 7'9
I live in New England so Most of the time our waives are mushy
Anyway what would you guys recommend ?
