If you've never surfed before, I'd suggest you HIRE a board - as even fairly scabby secondhand boards - especially longboards - hold their value very well.

Hiring a board also means you can try a few different ones and find a board that suits you........

hiring is a good suggestion, also a lot of places will let you try before you buy
my brother tried before he bought for about 3 months most weekends I:

The garage in Newgale hires out boards, they are usually softboards, these have lots of volume and will get you standing quickly. If you want to have a go a little closer to home try these http://www.porthcawlsurf.co.uk/ really helpful guys n girls who hire boards and they give a good surf report every day. The surf schools at rest bay and Llangeneth are a good way to start.

One last tip - dont hide your keys underneath your van before you go in - the scum of the earth are watching and its a long walk home in a wet wetsuit

Hope you enjoy it -

If your in South Wales go and see Roger Cooper. He makes custom surfboards and I'm sure he has a few second hand ones knocking about. My sister has an 8ft Mini Mal. Its an amazing board so easy to surf! Just google him I dont think he's far from you.

I have a nice 7'6 mini mal that I could sell. Comes in a good Rhino bag too. I'll get a pic up.
