So basically I used to ski a lot from Minnesota used to be real good and went to the hill all my life
but i'm a waterman at heart so i moved to Puerto Rico for 1 month and Australia for 3 months and now i live in California and i'm really into surfing and trying to start competeing
if your just getting into it go to your local shaper or someone who can make boards and tell them your skill level and the size and type of wave your going to be surfing they will help you size up the board so that it will fit you
The most common problem with people learning how to surf is buying boards too small: When you buy a board too small you will not catch waves and not get any practice only frustrate yourself
These were the boards i've had 9'6" longboard 7'6'' Mini mal or funboard 6'7'' shortboard 6'0'' I went from biggest to the smallest now i ride a 5'6 Firewire Dominator but i'm buying a 6'0" Fred Rubble as my go to shortboard
