    You don't need a polyvac if you're just starting.

    ^ i agree. i have two ultra's and can't see myself needing anything else. a poly would come in handy, for example, if you were down, in say, cabo--where it's powerful as balls. those waves will quickly snap a board especially if you're not on top of retrieving it right away...that's where the extra durability of the materials used in the poly come in.

    a big wave will snap a poly, or an ultra, or an exile, or any other board made. When people speak of increased durability of a poly over an ultra they are talking about the rails and bottom wear mostly.

    well lets not forget about the polyvinyl foam core and the other materials it's treated with. it all ultimately equates to a stronger board that won't break as easily as a ultra.

    Yea get an ultra, thats what I learned on. Its got the same shape as the poly too so you cant really go wrong. ^I wouldnt be worried about breaking it since you weigh so little and since youre a beginner. Too bad that sale at vic is over (I think) my friend got a used/repaired ultra for $60 lol
