Hello surfing guru's, I'm Paul. Sorry to post what must be a re-occurring topic for my first post. I've recently bought my first board after mastering the art of standing up in whitewater on a gigantic foam board! I went for a 7’0 x 21’1/2 x 2’3/4 HB Monster fish. Im 6ft and weigh 90kg. Ive used this board on 3 occasions and have struggled to pop up in a smooth motion if at all. My question is....is this operator error alone or should I have gone for a different board being a noob. Fwiw im 30 and fairly fit. I understand its a pretty vague question but in general would that board suit a beginner?
Looking forward gaining more valuable info from this site.
