    Check out the video on the page from the link above. They purposly drop in on someone with the traditional shortboard to show you how FAST it is! :LOL
    Go with a 8' longboard or move onto a good size fish and work your way down

    if ur lookin for a 7'6", go with the NSP fun shape. seriously lol. i traditionally ride my 5'10" plusone and went out the other day on a 7'6" nsp for s***s and giggles and had a blast. never saw it coming haha. about as sturdy as a bic too, and in my opinion an all-around better board

    Thats the only thing im worried about... My friends all said that i'll prob go through boards pretty quick as i work my way down to a short board... Only bc of my experience riding waves... I really don't want to buy 3 boards and keep spending more and more money...

    Buy a USED funshape with some (repaired) dings for about $150 - $175 at just about any surf shop this time of year. Ride it until next summer, and when the water gets warm, sell it for $100 without even trying. Look at it as $75 / year board rental. Is that really too expensive?

    Actually i didnt even think about that... It wasn't so much the spending money as much as i didnt want to lose more and more money re-selling boards i grow out of quickly... But i'm going to check the local shops for some used fun shapes... Thanks!!!

    If you can ride a wave on a skimboard then I would get a used quad fish.
