    Good to hear! That thing is going to serve you well... Specially for a 100$.

    One of my all time favorite boards is a 9'6 single fin longboard!

    nope I rode up there and looked at it.. It's in pretty bad shape to say the least they woulda had to pay me to haul it off..first off it was a tank I mean Really heavy
    1. 2 different delam areas on the bottom about 8in by 8in
    2. One 3 in round hole gashed in bottom
    3. Stringer on the bottom is out and pushing against the top layer of glass about 4-5 feet in length
    4.several smaller gashes and thin fiberglass areas especially on the rails
    5.several horizontal lines near delam areas appears maybe glass is cracked or foam is underneath topcoat?
    The whole board had been painted/spray painted grey front and back and was peeling in several areas
    Way too many problems to fix if even fixable..might make a decent restaurant decoration though
    ... The middle fin was fairly new though which I found strange... Had two small side bite fins that looked to be original oh ell 4.5 hrs down the tank

    Oh man sorry to hear- if it was half that bad I would have still bought it. That's a bummer... Sorry man.

    So the search continues.... I have done a lot of those trips in the past too..

    Perfect! Your going to love that thing! Granted- it's not going to perform like a real board- but it's perfect for learning to stand up and turn and ride down the line! Which is exactly what you need! PLUS it's perfect for anytime in the future- for those crowded 1ft summer days- you can just run everyone over and no worries about dings!

    You'll probabaly stand up within 2 times of going out in the right conditions

    Well the good news is that those foamys always hold their value- you will be able to sell it quickly for the price you got it- there is always a lot of beginners looking.

    I would suggest holding onto it for those packed summer days where you want to surf but not worry about dinging your board (with all the other beginners in the water)

    Have fun! Your on the right path now!

    A few tips:

    1 make sure you always lay on your board at the same spot- not too far forward and not too far back. You want the nose of the board to just glide above the water line. Stay at that spot at all times.

    2 cup your hands when paddling and keep your legs together and feet on the board or pointed back- not hanging off the side.

    3 practice popping up on land before going out.

    4 watch others to figure out where and when to catch the wave ( how steep the waves is before they start paddling)

    5 stay away from the better surfers- give them thier room. Surf by yourself or off to the side. Don't paddle out to the peak and get in everyone's way. Work your way up and into it. Be friendly and say hi to ppl.

    6 smile have fun

    Just trying to help frost- don't give up. It takes a long time to learn. Just have fun.

    Later bro

    Dude just tell them your friends with Mr Belmar. You'll be ok.

    The waves are so big you might not be able to make it out. Best break on the east coast

    well you cant miss me ,ill be the guy flailing about in a spring suite on a bright red boat....i always give the surfers out there room when i was bodyboarding,just proper etiquette imo i even see how the waves are breaking right or left or both and position myself away from where they would finish up their rides...,now some of the young kids left their lineup and break and paddled almost 30 yards directly behind me before wasnt gonna move for them they couldnt surf anyway from what i could see..but i do have to say something strange happened during one of the tropical swells last year..while catching some nice glassy 3-4 footers on my bodyboard a long blond haired girl/lady surfer paddled toward me after catching a wave and asked if i wanted to catch a wave on her board...was she just being nice or trying to flirt with me?

    I would say you should hit it!
    Stay away from 9th and 25th. Too crowded for a beginner. My breaks to the North are generally pretty empty. I may know the chick you are talking about. Was she riding a fish?

    cant remember now was near the pier... Eduardo swell i think real early a.m... had a crackly grovely voice like she may have had a rough night....good surfer though..normally am around 10th or so far enough away from 9th and far enough away from the tourists at pavillion,although sometimes the waves are a lot better right near the pier...

    I normally find the waves between the pier and Sully's to be less hollow. There are a few spots North that have a curl more like Folly. I am really excited to try surfing a couple secret breaks North of Dewees this spring/summer.
