surfing about 9 months and went from a minimal to a gun shaped pointy nosed 7'2" board about a month ago and have been struggling ever since. met a local legend on the beach who opened my eyes... he said to stay away from anything with a pointy nose. bigger board = more waves = more fun. (something i think i was losing sight of in my bullheaded struggle to master the shortboard).... he loaned me a 10' nose rider and i'm hooked! had the surf of my life!
anyway know nothing about longboards but gonna buy one soon. have been recommended to get one near 10' nose rider with a pin tail. any advice? any other info on longboarding anyone would like to volunteer would also be greatly appreciated.

Board comes with Rhino boardbag (pictured), Gorrilla grip tail pad and leash (leash and tail pad bought last year).
The board would be good to learn on and has plently of volume for small waves.

This board is a great - but time to go. A few impact marks, but nothing that noticeable and certainly not structural. Used for 2 years in Jersey only. Make me a sensible offer around £150 - comes with bag and leash
