Longboard advice for wannabe lady longboarder...

Postby Spandorexxa » Tue Feb 22, 2011 4:39 pm

H,

I've got some basic surfing experience surfing a mini mal (shaped - not a pop out) from a few years back. I was pretty crap on it but had a laugh, and now I'm wanting to get a longboard, Im on a *bit* of a budget, ;) Ive been looking at entry level Bic/NSP/ and the Nsp surf series (esp 9ft 2) as they are all withing my £250~ish grasp.

I'm thinking - Bic 8'4 magnum or NSP 9'2 longboard or Surf series 9'2
Which would be best for me: female, 5'8, 135lb?

I know theyre all crappy pop outs but the thought of another few months not being in the water pee's me off!

I've considered a second hand longboard off ebay but being currently car-less, there are like, none, where I live (Yorks East coast)... *le sigh*

Opinions apprieciated!

facebook lowbrow surf shop. They have a few used longboards cheapish. Scarborough is perfect for longboards. And as it gets bigger it gets more fun.

Enjoy.

you can get a proper decent fibreglass long board brand new from lowbrow for just a tiny bit more
