I have a beater. It's a lot of fun especially when the surf is small and mushy, and there's nothing like pulling 360's in the middle of driving down the line. Big unsurfable shorebreak waves are also a ton of fun to huck yourself into even though you don't make it most of the time. The only thing to think about is that it's really hard to get used to popping up on such a tiny board.
awwwwwwwwww man i got one! So sick! Super fun to skim and body board even though im completely jacked up from eaten sand practiceing my skiming skills all weekend. By far though the coolest was trying to surf it pretty hard but def worth it. i was havein trouble paddleing into waves just because there wasnt much of a swell this weekend as we all know. So i tried something different. i would run like a wildman down to the little shore break jump over it land on my BELLY then pop up and turn just it time to catch the next little breaker coming in. SUPER FUN
