Hi, my brother and I are learning to surf. He's 6'1 and 130lbs. I'm 5'4 and 108lbs. We are looking at an epoxy/kevlar funboard that's 7'6, or a greco 8' oft top foamboard. My feelings are that the greco would be easier to learn on, but we might outgrow it quickly and never use it again, where as the first one may last longer, or we may want to keep it.
