Im about to take the leap and move to the next level with my surfing , Ive been riding a 7 6 mini mal for 2 yrs and now Im looking at getting a short board.
I have been offered a 2ndhand webber afterburner , 6'6, this is jan2005 model.
Im 6ft and weight 154lbs,and have no problems standing , and doing long arcs, I suppose Im wondering if this is really the right board for me to go to, after all its $350 aussie , as oppossed to $700,brand new Im just wondering weather I will find it too difficult to get to grips with. As you know a lot of surf shops just tell you want you think you should buy as oppossed to what you really need.
So comments on the webber afterburner , and the size/ratio me, difficulty would be great, I know its going to be a totally different ride , but should I be going for something else or just a brand new 6'8 , 6 '10
