my partner and i did some surf lessons a few months ago and are looking at buying a board. He brought a shortboard on holiday which neither of us find very easy to use.
I am trying to be practical about it as dont want to waste money on something totally unsuitable and from what i have read the ideal one would be a minimal. However I would (if i can) like to get one that we can both use rather than buy two more boards.
He is 6 foot 2 and 14 stone where as i am 5 foot 5 and 7 and a half stone.
I found one that i thought may be suitable but would really appreciate your advice on whether this is a good board and would suit us both to improve on.
It is for sale on boardshop.co.uk and is the Bic Surfboards Natural Surf 2 2010 Package. It says that this is ideal for begginers, is quite tough and also says that it is suitable for: Rider - Male/Female 6.25stone/40kg to 16stone/100kg.
Any advice would be greatfully recieved.
