Im planning on heading to the coast (bournemouth) for a few weeks to stay with my grandparents and ive decided im gunan try and take up surfing but i need some advice on board choice
I didnt actually realise how expensive some boards can be and wetsuits etc but ive found a site that sells a 7ft softboard for £90
Just wondering would that be suitable for a 5ft10 - 10stone 19 year old

The 7ft is more rounded but doesnt seem as wide

try renting cos if u dont like it youve wasted allot of money
and i dont think those boards will be that good for a beginner

ps surfing is great i do it in scotland and last time i was doing it at easter it was snowing

Maybe rent one first to see if surfing is really for you..?

Ive tried surfing before and thought it was great just needed a lot of practice

Im planning on doing it for the time im there everyday - just want to get away from the area and head to the sea

have you looked in to relevent sixes of boards? doesnt your height dictate how big the board should be or something?

You really need to rent; start off on the bigger boards and hopefully work your way on to the smaller ones. There's no point buying until you've had a bit of practice!

They say that softboards are best to start with then move to fibreglass ones

Im not buying it yet im gunna get down there and probs rent something to try it but id prefer to buy one and a wetsuit too - probs set me back £150

So the ones above are pants for beginners?

Sorry to disapoint, but you wont get much surfing done around Bournemouth - It's the North Coast of Cornwall/Devon you should be looking at. I think if you spend that much on new clobber you're gonna be really disappointed as most of the the time there's no swell & if by chance you are lucky enough to find a decent day, you'll be joined by 1000 other holiday makers wanting to learn.
This experiance could put you off for life!
