Check out skimonline.com and their message boards. All the skimboarding info you could ever need and a ton of used boards for sale. I got a couple sick deals on used boards from people on there. There's some specific Threads for different areas too like NJ and NC. I'm sure you could find a good board for your size on there
thanks for the info! I'm trying to get one for trips to like oc md when it's flat but they have the little bump on the waters edge. I'd like to get a hand plane too for body surfing if anyone has any input on those..
