Any discussion on shaping, designing, repairing and riding surfcraft of any type or shape. Also a good place to ask the 'what board should I buy?' question.
After a bit of advice. I'm looking at buying my first board as I'm fed up of renting everytime I went to get in. I've been looking and can't decide between a blackboard glider 8' from the place in st erth or an alder heritage from down the line in hayle. What are your thoughts?

What's your budget, and why have you singled out those two? 8' is a good starting size IMO. Big enough to catch a lot but not so big it's a chore to handle.

The £360 asking price could get you a really well made second hand board instead of a poorly made new one.
Go the second hand route bud, the blanks and glassing on these cheap package deals isn't great.

I have a blackboard glider.
It's good, but from being a novice has taken me 18 months to get to grips with it, but now it really does glide.
I suppose it's down to how long you want to take to learn and how often you get in.
Go and see the black brothers, in hayle at tombstone in st Erth. Take what they say with a pinch of salt, but the glider is a good board.... Says me...but I'm no expert.
