    Used Surfboard

    My friend is just getting into surfing and I'm wonder if anyone has any used board for sale. He's looking for a fun shape or a long board perhaps just anything that is easy to learn on. He isn't really looking to spend anything over $200. Thanks

    6'4" Canyon Fish Twin Fin Super Thick and wide good board to get into surfing. Easier to store and transport to and from the beach versus the lonboard. He wants 240 but im sure would take a little less.

    Check out the second board on that thread. If your friend is remotely talented in surfing he will get bored with a fun-shape or longboard very quickly. I learned on a board very similar to that and it was perfect for me.

    It is but I feel like its valid. If you start out riding a fun-shape or a longboard and are interested in that type of riding style then typically id imagine they will want to upgrade to a more specific type of board very quickly (ie, straight nose rider, performance longboard, whatever) You don't see too many people progressing and getting good at surfing and sticking with a fun-shape. I sold the Walden mini-magic I had because it felt like funshape, Its too small to nose-ride and too long to turn it like a shortboard.

    This is not some longboard bashing post, I own longboards, Alaias, standup boogies, fishes, and shortboards. Just voicing an opinion.

    If the newb eventually wants to surf a shortboard, then I agree he'll get tired of the longboard. The fun shape, in my opinon, is not good for anyone who plans on sticking with it because almost everyone gets tired of them.
