Having hired boards a couple of times, foam topped jobs, I have been told they are probably not best for me to learn on by a couple of people, due to my size.
I am 5'10" and 15 stone.
I would like to get something that will catch more or less anything, but not too big that it's awkward to transport as I live 2.5 hours from the nearest beach, and about 4 hours from the surf!
Would something around 8' suffice, or bigger?
Dont want to buy new, or spend a fortune, as I am dipping my toe in the water...pun intended.
Any advice appreciated.
