I know a lightweight looking at one of these boards. I'm sure I have read on this formum that a SP is easier to surf but the shop assistant is telling him a BP is more user friendly for beginner to intermediate ability. Can someone confirm this please?
Also, he is only 60kgs but is looking at a 5'2 SP or 5'3 BP for ease of use. He has another 5'10 hybrid style board so will only be using the Firewire in smaller, fullish waves to compete with the longboards that seem to take over in conditions like this, but he is struggling with the dramatic drop in length. I would have thought slightly overvolumed would not be too much of a problem in smaller waves?
