Hey guys, i'm very new to the surf community, but my dilemma is finding the right size surfboard and the right surfboard itself. Now ive only surfed once in my life. idk if this is relevant or not but ive been skateboarding and longboarding for about 9 years. Again idk if this means anything but I have amazing balance and coordination I've always wanted to surf, but I never lived in a location that was close to decent swells. So I dont mind spending money for a quality board. However I dont want to buy a monster sized beginner board and then be ready for something smaller in a matter of months. Any help/advice is appreciated.
Oh ya! my height is 5'9 and my weight is 169
