$130 one. Better for you coming off the fun board. Your quiver will build as you progress anyway, this is just a the start...
Soon you'll find yourself late at night hunting forums like this for your next score, rent will be late, phone will be turned off, you haven't bought dinner for your woman in months - but you'll find a dumpster diver you've always wanted to ride.
You'll have 20+ boards from retro to pro to classic and all your friends will think you're nuts...
I can honestly say for the past couple of years I've become obsessed with finding boards that fly in knee-thigh high waves.
But yeah...the "need" line was crossed many boards ago.
However they sure have gotten a lot of use the past four months.
heres the great thing about $110 boards...if you love it, its a great deal even if it only lasts a year
If you hate it, its still worth $100 next summer, and you learned something.
It actually looks like a decent shape to get the feel of a short board, but will still paddle into a stomach high wave.
Can you read the shapers name on the bottom by any chance. Any WRV done by Tommy Moore is pure classic.
Mitchell... I guess it depends on how you define "groveler." In my mind, a groveler is a performance shortboard for very small surf, and a mini Simmons is in a category all on it's own.... like a traditional fish.
Several years ago I purged... now I'm down to one groveler... one log, one fish, one shortboard, one semi-gun... that I ride. Minimalist, I guess...
Definately go with the $130 board. You can't go wrong either way. Buy and try them all.
