I am 5’11”, 70kg (154lb), 41-year-old, an average surfer and I have surfed on a 9′ longboard for a year every weekend and I can catch waves in a good condition without much efforts. I don’t think I am an intermediate yet, though.
I live in Korea but I travel to San Francisco every 4 weeks. So I got a 5’10” shortboard (Quagg, Jeff Mccallum) to surf in US but I realized that early transition to shortboard is not a good idea since I fail to pop up on the shortboard. It took a month for me to paddle on the shortboard but I can’t fix the pop-up part yet. So I am looking for more suitable board for the transition.
1) I ride a train and a bus to go to surfing spots (e.g. Linda Mar) so I can’t take more than 7′ surfboard (7′ max.)
2) I prefer durable, ding-free ones like Lib Tech due to riding a public transportation.
I am looking at Lib Tech Puddle Jumper and Lib Tech Extension Ramp. Would you recommend any of them for me? Any advice would be great!
