I stand up boogie when its small and let me just say it is FUN! The beater is too flimsy IMO but if youre agile then def try stand up when the waves are small or there are guards. Ive gotten so many fun shorebreak barrels just from messing with my herlihy. Itll help your surfing too, the fins will make your board feel like an F1 car after youve used a small, finless board.
Oh yea forgot to add it really helps you learn how to use your body and weight to hold the rail, you wont be using your feet nearly as much as you will be bending and leaning into the wave.
