Ok, I'll lay it all out.
Been surfing for about 6 months now on the Central Coast of California. I've learned on a 9'8" Pearson Arrow performance board. To tell you the truth, to much o nthe perforemance side, I'd just like to cruz the waves nice and easy, I'm 40.
Yes, I know I should get a used fat 80's style long board, but I need something to teach the kids on and I'm rough with boards, hence the Bic & Soft Top.
Which one floats better, catches waves faster, and is closer to a fiberglass board performance wise.
Thanks a lot guys, I have a limited budget.
