I'm looking to make the transition from a longboard to a short'er'board. I have been surfing awhile now, but still consider myself a beginner.
I have rented 8&9 foot softops, a 7'10, which I could manage easily, and a 7'4, which wasn't too bad either.
Today I went looking for my FIRST board, and was looking at a 6'9. It was almost 3"thick, and 20 3/4" wide.
I am a girl, 5'3, and 115lbs.
Will I be able to ride this thing?...and will I be able to duck dive it?
Any advice will be appreciated! Thanks!
