So, you’ve decided to take up surfing? Congratulations! Surfing is an exquisite hobby choice. You are about to embark down a radical path filled with gnarly aerial maneuvers, dizzying spins, and massive hacks that send gobs of spray onto nearby onlookers. I am sure that you are already imagining how you could go pro and redefine the sport. But before you set out on a quest to knock Slater off of his public transportation-powered mountain in Lemoore, you need to learn how to actually, you know, surf.
Because you are reading this, I can tell you are an intelligent person. A good habit smart people employ is gathering all the correct and necessary information available before making a decision. You most likely already visited multiple surf forums, read many informative articles, and maybe talked to an actual human being or two about the best board for a person in your position: the beginner surfer. Unless they are absolute morons, they have all told you to purchase a Wavestorm. Do note that some morons are capable of handing out quality surf advice.
