The "Natural Surf", a classically styled board from Bic Surf, is a perfect choice for a beginning to intermediate rider. It''s kind of a longboard-lite, designed for maximum stability and maneuverability for newfound surf-legs. It''s also tough - this thing was meant to take the lickings new riders will dish out while their still getting their skills together - and to last you until you''re ready for a more challenging ride. The board even has a nose protector (though it''s definitely tastefully done and doesn''t appear to detract from the seriously classic stylings the ACS line is known for). Basically - this is a great, affordable board that will serve you well until you''re ready to move up. It''s a perfect choice.
