After a few years of riding short boards, I tried a long board and I`d like to buy one. I`ve seen ads for "high performance" long boards, wooden longboards, nose riders, and lots of variation on rocker.
I just want to be able to ride small to medium Northern California mushy waves. Will more rocker make it easier to catch waves? What is a good size, thickness, rocker, to get?
Any tips on brands? I`d rather keep cost low.
Im in So Cal, the brand should be a local guy. If I was in your shoes, I would try one of the new " hybrids". Wider, thicker, more of a flat spot, less rocker, smaller than a longboard, a good transition board. Actually a good all around board, floats ya, performs, FUN. Your pal, Leroy.
