    Find someone who gives private lessons. They'll have a board for you to use. You'll be better off that way.

    Go to a CostCo, buy a foam board about 2' taller than yourself and a body glove wetsuit on the cheap, paddle out, wait until a wave comes, turn around, paddle hard, pop up, rinse and repeat.

    This is spot-on. Listen to The Wisdom of The Whaler.

    reminds me of the other night. i was literally walking out of the water around 715 pm and this guy is about to go out. "hey man hows the waves?", "well its low tide so it's a bit drained and really shallow", "but the tide just turned", "yeah I know, its alright" "so how are they?!?" "theyre alright"

    look the **** around with your eyes you stupid **** and come to your own conclusion...interrogation session on the conditions.
