    Yea... but... see... the outside of the foil is flat and the inside is curved. So those boards work good in the southern hemisphere.

    Now, the through-the-board leash plug... that's so retro it's futuristic!

    craigslist a log or a funboard. $200 should get you something decent. Post pics of your prospects we can help you say yay/nay

    WOW- UNBELIEVABLE!!! good eye- that is crazy!!! DON'T GET THAT BOARD- total waste of money- and probably smells like hot garbage too!
    Take everyone's advise (plus the other million threads on beginners boards) and get a big REAL fiberglass board- do your self a favor and get a beat up longboard off craigslist for cheap then get a better board next year...

    DO NOT GET A FIBERGLASS BOARD.

    for a first surfboard i ALWAYS recommend a 8'6" "wave storm" from costco. you cant hurt it and it cant hurt you.

    those ebay boards look way too small to learn on. im a decent surfer and i love to take a wavestorm out now and again, they're fun boards

    one sponger to another

    8-9 foot fun board or long board in 'glass or epoxy. it'll make your progression more consistent and you will have a product that will retain its life (and value) over a longer time...practice your popups and practice arm paddling with no kick...when you get to a short board you can kick again.....good luck
