    Surf board advice

    Are there any experienced surfers that could give me some advice please? My 12 year old daughter has recently been surfing with some friends & had a couple of lessons......and now she's been bitten by the bug!! We're thinking of maybe buying her a beginners surf board for her birthday & I would like some idea of a good (not too expensive) board to buy. Many thanks in advance.

    have a chat with her instructer or hire a few different sizes to see what she gets on with best.., probably a mini mal around 8ft would be good. pick one up via freeads / gumtree locally second hand, dont worry if its got a few scrapes / dings as long as its water tight.. I never go to the cost of brand new, as I would want to keep it pristine and would get upset about knocking it. its a great sport to get into!

    Thanks very much for your reply. You're absolutely right, I'd be the same with a new one!
