  1. I really wanna start surfing im 5 7 @ 140 pounds i live in mid florida and
    the waves are quiete small so i think im going for the hybrid short board?
    Or the fun shape idk

  2. I have had a wavestorm from costco for about 7 months now and i want to
    upgrade but i have no idea what type of board i should get, help me out!
    from san diego!

  3. Hey I’m a young grom (10) 4’9 90 pounds. I was wondering what surfboard I
    should get? Skill level: Beginner

  4. so i am 135lbs, im 5’6ft, and i live in south florida. I will probably surf
    once or twice a week. Im looking for a first board and i would like
    something that lasts long, and is fun to ride. I don’t know whether to get
    a fun shape board or a hybrid short board. 

  5. I live in south florida, and i weight around 135 lbs. Im 5’6, and i will be
    able to surf once or twice a week. I am a beginner and i don’t know what
    kind of board i should start with. I want something fast and fun.

    As wooden boards (at least, 100% wood) are pretty rare and quite expensive,
    I would say foam meaning polyurethane foam from which about 90% of the
    world’s surfboards are made. Start off with that, maybe a funshape or a
    longboard for stability.

    It’s hard to say exactly when we’ll have waves, but there are usually some
    in April. Check out our Ft. Lauderdale shop when you’re in town for the
    best board selection this side of Antarctica! You can check out some boards
    like the Firewire PotatoNator or Dominator, good float and you wouldn’t
    have to up to 7 feet. I ride a 5’8 Dominator and I clock in at 80 kg, so a
    6’0 or 6’2 should be plenty of floatation.

  8. so, i weight about 130. and i am 5″7, so if i get a shortboard that is
    about 6″5. it would be easier for me to surf? i am a beginner. also maybe a
    little wider and thicker.. i would be able to surf on that? an hybrid

  9. hey, extremely helpful video. im looking for a first board, im use to the
    water, ive body boarded and skim boarded for about 5 years, so ive got good
    balance. the waves that id be on would be anywhere from waist to 10 feet
    high. i want something thats going to be fast and thats going to be able to
    keep up with what i want to do as i progress with surfing, so preferably
    not a 9’6 longboard. im looking at the 7’6 pumpkin seed and the rusty
    piranha 6’10. any advice on those or other suggestions?

  10. i live in North Carolina near the southern outter banks and our beach faces
    south, not east, so we usually have small waves and im 200lbs. i learned on
    a 9 ft rental and i kinda want to get into the smooth longboard style
    because i ride longboard skateboards. there is a used 9ft2in GandS at the
    surf shop where i work and i have my eye on it. do you think this is a good
    choice? i will probly only be surfing like once or twice a week until next

    Definitely can be. Hybrids aren’t quite as stable as a longboard/funshape,
    but you’ll be able to jump into a performance style a bit earlier.

  12. Hi guys im from argentina and i will be in Miami at the end of april,
    wanted to know if there are waves to surf there. Also wanted to buy a 7
    feet surfboard, not a mini malibu, with good flotability because i weigh
    around 90kg. Thanks

  13. BC Surf And Sport

    Sounds like a good choice. Longboards are great to learn on; they catch a
    ton of waves, paddle easily, and you’ll get longer rides on them. As you’re
    only able to surf a couple times a week that board will increase your
    chances of surf, especially since its going to be smaller conditions. If
    it’s in good condition I’d say go for it!

  14. Longboarding isnt for beginners. Its a style…. there good for learning
    because of the area. but more advanced stuff like noseriding is
    longboarding style! not a begginer board.

  15. so, i weight about 130. and i am 5″7, so if i get a shortboard that is
    about 6″5. it would be easier for me to surf? i am a beginner. also maybe a
    little wider and thicker.. i would be able to surf on that?

    You ride a 7 inch board?!?! Must take some crazy balance, haha. Alright,
    I’m assuming you mean 7 foot board, unless you’re a highly ambitious
    grasshopper. If you’ve got the basics down (going left, right, paddling
    into waves easily, etc) you could definitely take a step down. Maybe try
    out a 6 foot board with a bit of extra volume so it’s not too much of a
    drastic drop. It’ll turn a lot easier than the 7 footer, go shred!

  17. Im a pro surfer and live in miami FL. no there arent waves from what I know
    but i have a house in san sebastian there there are nice waves.
