so, i've lived in Toms river, nj my whole life and only now am picking up a surfboard...i know i know,, WTF happened. better late than never is what i say.

i received a board for graduation, 6'7" Kechele, and have gone out a few times, but i suck. i know i can go the easy route and get on a big ol funboard, but im trying to do this the hard way goddamnit. so for starters:

pointers? i think my main issue is that i try to pop up way after the wave has me.

booties? i have a 3/2 full suit that im gonna start rippin in this week, but should i get some booties (and do you have some you want to sell me)

thats it for now. get wet
