I currently own a BIC 8,4 board but am looking for something better. I guess I pop up on the board ok, manage to catch smaller waves, do bottom turns, go down along the wave and well... basicaly thats it. Since the pop out is so big heavy and generally cumbersome I would like to switch it up for something custom and I think ordering from UK is my best bet (I live in Poland). Usually I surf on vacations (been a couple of times to Portugal, Spain and France) and weekends when there is a wind swell on baltic sea (very inconsistent and low quality wave) so I prolly need something for around knee to shoulder, mushy waves. Id like the board to have decent paddling power and speed but I would be glad if it had at least a bit more maneuvrability than the BIC board has, plus I need to learn how to duck- dive
Anone can give me advice on shapers based in the UK plus on shape and size of a board that would be good for me?? Im doing my research on the internet but hearing advice from other possibly more advanced people would be nice too. Thanks!
