DONT TELL ME TO SEARCH AND/OR TRY OUT A FEW BOARDS. ive searched and i cannot just try out boards. im hoping for someone to tell me which board would work for me based on what i do in skimboarding. i also have a quick question before this, do i need carbon? im mainly doing backside wraps and frontside liners but ive been using a shit board so hopefully ill get a little better with a nice board. i want a board that is very fast because i am kinda slow and something that will get me really far out to the waves.i also dont want to spend more than like 500 with an arch bar. i like a floaty board but i would like a slightly quicker turning board. some boards i was looking into are:
Exile carbon trad. or hybrid rocker 3/4
Exile s-glass trad or hybrid 3/4
Exile domke pro model 3/4
Exile paulo pro model 3/4
Zap egg carbon (i believe that is 3/4)
Zap comp carbon "
Zap comp s-glass "
Zap jason wilson pro model 5/8-3/4-5/8
Zap steve boomhower pro model "
Vic mojust pro model 3/4
Apex carbon 3/4
Apex s-glass 3/4
i am about 103 lb and 5'2". i ride in long island, lbi, cape cod and very rarely san diego. 60-70% of my riding is done on long island though the rest are just vacations. generally its light shore break but every once in a while it gets bigger (4+ ft). please tell me if you think i should just get e-glass but i don't think i should because even if i get e-glass its gonna be a $300 investment and i want my board to last a few years at least so my riding will progress. keep in mind i will also grow so in 2 years i assume ill be around 130lb or so but i dont know lately my growth has been strange. thanks for help in advance.
