I say go to your surf shop and get this board made by Catch Surf. Its called the "BEATER" Its floats like a bigger board, you can surf it but you can also use it as a body board. The thing is rad and for 160 bucks you cant go wrong. I got it just to play with on smaller days and now i love it. you can stand up on it and cut down the line or just lay on it in the little knee high barrels. def try it out
