    Surftech boards

    So im thinking about purchasing my first "new" board and found a good deal for a Surftech "No Brand" Stylish Nugget (9'3"). I was wondering what people thought of the surftech tuflite technology and wheather this would be an acceptable board for and beginner looking to advance. I live in southern maine so the summers can be pretty harsh. Learded on a 7'6" fish and am looking for a longer board for those small summer days.

    Most ppl don't like the surftech boards.... But I got one and I love it! It's my go to board to surf any conditions that's Belmar NJ (aka the east coast pipe) will throw my way.. but it's an al merrick not a surftech brand shape... That being said I can't account for the shape of the board. But I do like that fact that it's hard to ding and it's super buoyant.. Your just beginning so I think it would be a good board for you! You might not notice the difference in shape

    Why not go the extra 14" like the other Chuck from So. ME and you can be twins with the same name riding the same Hotkurl 10'5 at the same crappy beachbreak?

    I had a Surftech. Thing could take a beating. And Lord knows I'll give a stick a beating with the beating I take on the wave. Light and strong they are, I don't care what cats here will say bout them.

    Thanks for the good info guys. Hopefully this means more waves caught this summer. I was litterally paddling the length of the beach some days just to get in the water.

    And for the record surftech makes very durable stuff but I do find that it chips easly which can lead to more problems but a lick of epoxy will fix up the surftech epoxy boards real quick

    i started on a fiberglass 9'6" and stayed on it for 2 yrs. i wanted to transition to a shorter board and found the surftec mac fish 7'2" to be perfect. it floated the same as the longboard and i could duckdive it and maneuver it. was a game changer for me. i am now onto a 6' surftec board after a few more incremental drops, all epoxy boards. i wont buy a fiberglass board again bc they are too fragile.

    heres the link
    money well spent
