Hey Gaffer, no must be a different gal as I dont think this one has been in any magazine spreads (that I know of haha)

Man I need to get a board and soon! Looks like there'll be decent waves in Texas all week and it sucks having to plan my days around the opening and closing times of surf shops, especially since I'm a commuter . Do you think 9'6 will be long enough or should I go 10+ foot? I'd like to be able to surf often even when waves are small so I'm thinking bigger is better? I've been searching craigslist but used longboards are still fairly expensive. I'd like to get a beater for cheap b/c I dont yet know enough about what I want/what I need. But beater longboards seem hard to come by!
