I'm ready to order a board today, but cannot pick between all the different options.. I'm going to spend in the 300 range. I think I have decided on an exile recruit, but would look into other suggestions as well. Though I have searched a ton already, and the exile seems like the best choice.
keep in mind I'm a beginner. Skimmed on the sand years ago with a cheap wooden board, and enjoyed it. I want to buy something that won't limit me getting better once I do get good.
Based on that, I think I want a pro shape. I hear the learning curve is more difficult, but I will get better quicker.
The size though really throws me off. I'm 6 foot and around 165-175 pounds. Seems I'm their site I have different options as far as sizes that will fit me. What would be suggested?
Thickness I have read a lot about but am still lost with the skim slang. I will skim in so Cal, so laguna, and other areas. Best thickness for these areas?
And not important, but color? To go fastest white/red, or teal/white, or teal/grey?
Thanks all for the help, very much appreciated.
