Moving to England in July« on: June 14 2006 15:06:00 »
My family is being relocated to Kent, Canterbury, England this July though September. I was wondering what the ideal board is to bring along with me for the summer surf. I noticed that longboards are grealtly recommended. I had to sell off my quiver for cash this summer and all I have is a 5'10' al merrick flyer. I am pondering buying a longboard and bringing it over seas or just purchasing one in England. If anyone can give me an idea of how big the waves are in the summer months and what is the most ideal board, I would greatly appreciate it.
It seems that some of the reported wave heights are perfect for a shortboard, but I dont know how often this happens or how the waves break over there. I am used to surfing mushy FL waves, and the bigger swells in NJ and Va Beach in the United States. Thanks and I hope to see some of you in the lineups in England!
