Hi - a friend and myself decided that we both want to learn how to surf this summer. I've gone once (and I was horrible!) and he's gone a couple times - and isn't quite as bad as myself. Anyways - I'd like to get my own equipment. So - what would you suggest? If it matters I'm just under 6 feet tall, I'm fairly athletic (I run about 3 times a week, go to the gym maybe 5 times a week, ski as much as I can during the winter, and play both golf and tennis whenever I get the chance). Oh and I'm in Oregon, and plan on staying there, if that matters at all.
So what kind of board should I get? Mostly I just want something that is easy to learn on at this point. Thanks!
