I've been surfing once and am hooked!!!
I'm living up in newcastle and have a wetsuit but am looking around to find a decent, second-hand board. I've been advised that the NSP's are pretty hot. BIC's are pretty good too & probably slightly cheaper than NSP's so I'm thinking maybe a BIC will be a good start. I'm about 5'6" (I think) and 65kg (not good with stones, think that's between 9 and 10st). Am thinking along the lines of a 6'6" - 7'6" sizewise. Would that be right for me? I like the look of 6'8" NSP shortboard.
Any advice would be great!!! I don't want to go and get a brand new board for a first timer so I'm gonna have to keep a look out for second hand ones. Also, what's the best bet for finding second-hand boards around Newcastle? Anyone know?
