Ok, I'm new here. Have started surfing, have a 8ft sunset foam board. Have been surfing it quite regularly in the past months, at least once or twice a week. I want to know what kind of board i should buy next. the foamie is ok but i feel it is very heavy and hard to get out back in a bit bigger days. Im about 5' 9" and around the 75kg mark. Have been on here and looking at other websites and guides on what is good to learn on. just looking for some advice from people that have went through the steps already. Have money to spend on a board but don't want to waste it. Want a board that I will be able to use now but that will let me progress. Have been looking at the Forth Chilli Beans and Black and White 7ft fish are these the right boards to be looking at or am i being too ambitious? Goal at the minute is to be surfing a 6' 4" JP shortboard in the not so far away future that I have at home after picking it up very cheap.
Any feedback at all would be very helpful, and examples of boards. Thanks.
