    Not trying to start trouble with you, Charles. I think a 7'6" Bic fun board is an ideal board to learn on. They are indestructible and catch waves like crazy. Then you can let a friend use it and not worry about it. I still bring out the Bic on dumpy shore break days. You can pick up a used rental board at a surf shop for cheap.

    I agree...
    The Bic's are the shiznitz...I have the 7'8" and an NSP 8'2" for friends when they come into town. I can usually get even the least coordinated of my non-surfing peeps up on a wave in less than an hour if the conditions are right. To the OP, just go cheap on c-list!

    Not sure what that is. Searched the net and got too many possibilities. I'm assuming it has something to do with my body. I'm 25, slim but not super skinny. 6 ft 2in 180 pounds. Since i've made surfing my main hobby I have been exercising and doing my best to eat healthy foods.

    You seem to be in good shape. If you are under 30 ( you are 25, right?), go for a 6'8" to 7" fish/shortboard hybrid. You will be able to duck dive it, turn it and eventually surf it in good waves. Anything bigger is a crutch. You can thank me later.

    you might need another car if you're gonna be lugging a surfboard around 300 miles, round trip. I suggest a pickup with a shell...that way you can also sleep in the back, if need be.
