Everyone Starts Somewhere...

Post by jester » Sun Jan 18, 2015 11:03 am

Complete beginner here, but definitely feeling ready to just get out there and see what happens. Looking for advice on everything: where to get a board, what board to start with, where to go, etc. Anyone in the Bay Area willing to meet up somewhere and show me how it's done? Gladly reward your time with a few beverages of your choice...

buy something used that you know will work. if its worn you know somebody rode the shit out of it. if it looks new and they are trying to sell it to you its probably for a good reason.

Thanks. I've definitely got the stoke part down, got a good deal on a beginner board, and I'll be out there somewhere tomorrow morning, trying to actually stand on the thing.
