I've tried surfing once a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it and i'm looking to pick up my own equipment.
A friend of mine is letting me use her employee discount at a local sporting store and they recently got in some SUP's and one shortboard.
The shortboard is a 2011 Stretch Fletcher 4 6.5' Shortboard. The board price was $250 w/ fins and i've been really thinking about picking it up! They only carry the one style of board in the one size! My current weight is 140lb @ 5,6ft. From what i've gathered, a 6.5" is average sizing in my weight/ height category. However, i have read that the F4 boards are designed to allow surfers to go shorter then regular sizing.
Would this be an ok board for my lb/ft? I'm not looking to dump a ton of money into this sport seeing the only time i will use it is during the summer for vacation (oregon coast)
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
