    I'll always skim... I'm just looking to expand my boarding abilities.. I've pretty much boarded on every type of terrain and on every type of board--- just never picked up a surf board... Sounds kind of funny bc surfing is a major boarding sport lol... But i always enjoyed skimming so i didnt feel the need to paddle out, but now im older and im tired of watching my friends surf while im on the beach... Whats the difference betwen a quad fish and a fish-- if any? thanks guys

    no soft tops!!

    I learned to surf on a 7-6 hybrid with no problems, something like that would def be good. Just stay away from the soft tops unless u have a little kid(real little) learning to surf.

    soft tops are stupid. they are trully only good for like s::ty shorebreak. but i learned on a 9' modern longboard and was riding the line on my first try. but thats also because i have been snowboarding almost my whole life.

    Chances are if you are skimboarding and decent at it, you will catch on to surfing pretty quick. Everyone says to get a fun shape, but I never learned on one and by the time you learn you'll want to get rid of the fun shape because it will no longer be fun. By a board based on your style of riding or what you percieve it to be. I started on a 6'2" squash, 18 1/4" W, the board did not hold be up unless surf was minimal. By used.

    if you want to eventually shred, try tricks etc. just start out on a thruster that might be a little longer than you would normally ride. So if you are 5'8" get a 6'3" or 6'4". then once you get good get like a 6'1" or 6'0".

Looking for a board that i can start on but not a longboard bc i have experience riding waves already on my Victoria SkimBoard... I stumbled on this odd looking board and need to hear from guys with experience what is its deal and what should i be looking for...
