    had a 6 ft david nuuhiwa board in the 80's (i was 18 or so) but i had depth perception issues and couldn't see sh!t. i sponged for the next 20 years, developing ways to see better. once i got the vision thing worked out i picked up a 9'6" dewey weber gun and have been enjoying it ever since. learning how to read waves as a sponger went a long way in helping me accelerate my surfboard acumen rapidly and profoundly.

    I'm so happy for you......I'll never forget the day I got my custom board. Here the picture....it was also the first day of the first hurricane of 2011.

    To the other 4 people who selected over 30 in the poll......I'd like to chat. Maybe start an over 30 group or something.....I believe we'd be able to relate to each other in a way other just can't. Hit me up!

    Started surfing at age 48 on a 9'2 Southpoint. Now at 53 it's a toss up on the conditions what I ride. Anything from a 6'0 fish to a 9'2 longboard.

    I started about a year and a half ago at 33. Started on a 9' long board and last week bought a 6'6" fish. I get out whenever I can, usually that means in the mornings before work.

    I started at 23 too, and shared the same feeling until one day someone told me that "its not important when you start, its important that you started. just put in the water time and youll catch up!"

    That is awesome! I surf with an older guy who only started a few years ago and his surf stoke is unbelievably awesome! Its a pleasure to be in the water with him, and dang is he good!
