What is your advice to someone who wants to order a surfboard?
I would advise you to put yourself in the hands of someone who knows about surfboards. I also think it´s essential to test many types of boards if you could have the opportunity to do it.
Lastly, I would recommend that people not be too hasty in ordering boards that require more years of experience and skill. The key to find the right board is to take into account your level of surfing, the type of wave you usually surf, your strengths and weaknesses in order to adapt the board to your needs.
