Hi, Im looking to step up from my bic board and am after some advice please.
Ive skated as a kid and surfed from 13 to 19 ( i think on a 6'6 vitamin sea ) but have only just returned to surfing. . . . .
Im 40 yrs old and going between 13 and 14 stone. I have moved back to cornwall and with my young kids got back into the water on a body board and fins.
Anyway as my kids have grown up the have both started to surf on foam boards and love it which has meant i no longer spend my time in the red and yellow flags! Woo!
I got a cheap 7'9 bic board off ebay in march and a decent 5,3 wetsuit and can''t get enough off it and try to get in the water at least once a week with the kids and more if i can get away from work for an hour. Anyway i bought the bic board really cheap but feels as if im steering the ark royal back to shore. Money is tight and i dont wont to buy another board and within a month be thinking i have made a mistake!
Im not a teenager any more and cant paddle at 60mph to catch anything but feel as tho im restricted with my current board and want to know where to go from here please?
