Hi - my first post on MSW! I look forward to spending many hours on here!
I'm 39 and I stopped surfing about 6 years ago. Back then I was riding a 6' 1" thruster. I've decided to come out of retirement, but on retrieving my board from the garden shed it's quite evident it hasn't survived, lots of damage.
I think this is a good thing - I need something far less demanding now. Something that's buoyant but not so buoyant I can't dive under waves with it. Also needs to be reasonably nimble.
I'm 5' 6" and weight @ 12 stone (76 KG). I surf in Cornwall, favourite place is Widemouth but enjoy all the regular haunts too.
Budget is £400 (£450 at a push). Would prefer to spend less obviously. Would prefer to buy new.
So that's me! All suggestions welcome!
