I am unsure on what sort of surfboard to purchase. I am making the change from bodyboarding as i want some more fun on the smaller days. i have used my mates 6"4 epoxy fish but just cant get it on this board as its fairly unstable at times and i think it may be a bit too short for my experience level.
i am confident in the surf but don't know wether to buy a minimal or a fish.
i am no taller than 6ft and weigh 80kg.
i have been shopping around for a few boards and have been told from a few salespeople that once u get the hang of a minimal the turning and speed is limited, so i have been also recommended to try a 6"10 big guy fish as it still has good width and bouyancy.
i have my eyes on a 7"2 minimal and bag for $320 or a 6"10 fish and bag package for $650.
i will be surfing most weekends and try to after work on good days.
Looking forward to someones advice,
