Hi I was having a question about what board to get. I have looked over some of the other posts on this for some help already.
I am 5'9" and about 175 lbs. I have been surfing for a couple of weeks pretty regularly and I can popup and ride a wave consistently straight towards the shore. I can turn a little but I am still have trouble turning (I have been surfing on foamies so far so I think that makes it harder). I surf in NJ and I want to buy my first board and I was wondering what size would be good for me. I can't decide whether to go with a funboard, mini longboard, or a longboard. I want a board that I can use in most conditions since I am on a budget.
I would appreciate any advice on size of board and the brand. I was looking at Isle boards and was wondering if they were alright for a beginner. I plan on getting a custom board once I am better and won't mess it up but wouldn't mind being able to keep my first board in my quiver then too. Thanks for any advice in advance
