I'm having trouble deciding on what board to buy. I'm a skateboarder first so I want a board that can do off the top moves such as airs and more. I am highly skilled in this area.
At the same time, I'm out of shape and I've always been a lazy paddler so the hardest part of surfing for me is actually catching the waves and having to always wear a wetsuit doesn't help.
So, I'm looking for advice on what board to buy. I want a board that can do maneuvers but catches waves like a stand up paddle board does. The less paddling the better! I usually surf the crappy waves at county line, surfrider, venice, bay street, porto, zuma and zeroes. I'm 6'0" and 195lbs.
Here are a few boards that I have thought about:
Rusty Piranha Quad
Santa Cruz Pumpkin Seed
Josh Hall Quad Fish
Christenson quad fish
Surf Prescriptions New Toy
What size and style of board would you recommend for me?
