Hi, I'm Gonz and I'm a newb. Beginner surfer who's looking to upgrade from a foam board and I found this on CL. Just wondering if anyone can tell me if this is a good buy for me. I'm about 6' tall and 200lbs. I'm getting pretty good at popping up and working on turning. I really like the looks of this board and it's about the size I think I should have, but I'm not sure about the exposed agave stringer. It looks like it's just unfinished wood and I don't know how that's going to hold up. pros: looks, size cons: I don't know if the shape is good for a beginner, I don't want something that's going to split down the middle (agave stringer) in the first season.
gracias for any help in advance
