I mean, assuming you're not like a 16 year old girl or anything cuz then I'd feel kind of creepy and wrong about it. I pretty much always surf alone at Belmar so I could use a buddy. I'm not that good so I always feel funny about trying to make friends with the guys who tear it up down there. Warning- you'd have to not care about walking around with a guy who looks like an @sshole carrying a board that's almost 4 feet taller than him though, cuz I use a 9'6
Oh and my 2 cents as to boards: summer waves here are not going to be well-suited to a shortboard, and if they are (like if there's a tropical storm off the coast) then you, as a beginner, probably won't be able to do anything with them. I could be wrong there because you might pick it up quick. Still, your best bet is to go with something used but not damaged that is at least a foot longer than you are tall, about 22 inches wide and 3 inches thick (ie, funshape). You need something with a lot of foam to start out with because you need the stability and buoyancy to make it that much easier to get used to paddling, going from laying to sitting and vice versa, catching waves, etc. You'll want to be able to get into waves easily so you can boost your learning curve. If it's a big job to catch waves you'll learn a lot slower and probably get a lot more discouraged. But I've only been doing it for like 7 months so I could be wrong.
