    Beater boards are more upscale foam boards. They are advertised for surfers to use on all sorts of waves, including high tide shore break. It sucks when dead high tide is in the middle of the day - "Beater" boards will fix that. Can't wait to get mine.

    The board my daughter is on is a BZ its like 6'-2" maybe. I bought it for $65 at the end of the summer from The Pit in Kill Devils Hills (outer banks)
    Best thing to do is call local Surf Schools or Surfboard Rental places, ast the end of the summer they dump their old beat up boards so they dont have to store them, one last cash out before the tourist go home. I got my kids foam board for $65 at the end of the summer years ago for my oldest daughter.
    I actually ride it too, when I have to get wet and its shore break or if its rolling and weak and just breaking its like a longboard almost it floats so well. Doest turn worth a crap with Rubber fins but its fun
