To Mr. Pro Surfer and Dreynolds: I don’t understand why you despise surfers who have "white" or new boards (as opposed to old yellowed fiberglass boards).
An accomplished surfer will always have (or wish they have) a minimum of 2 boards: 1 for small waves and another for big waves. This applies to short- and long-boarders.
Surfers do not use one board all their lives. A beginner is advised to start in a longboard for obvious reason: he will learn surfing in about 4 to 6 months as opposed to 2 years in a shortboard. (Nothing is more pathetic than a beginner in a shortboard wobbly learning to stand up in whitewater.) After learning the basics, one can then opt to shift to shortboard or stay on the longboard.

Later, he will feel that his board is hampering his progress and will want another. This time he would know the tail, rail, foil, rocker, etc., that he wants. And since one cannot find the exact specification in a second hand board, then one asks a shaper to make it for him. Or find a specific production board model of particular length.
Still later, he will probably want a looser or higher performance board. After that, he may want a new board just to perk up his surfing.
Since you despise surfers who have “white” or new boards, you obviously have not reached a point where you feel that your old board is hampering your surfing progress. Or you may have reached that point but can’t get a new one. Simply put, both of you are either beginners or a sour-grape intermediates.

Malaki ang diffrence ng iba't-ibang boards. Ang beginner board ay upturned ang nose (pronounced ang entry rocker) para hindi sya tumusok sa tubig kung medyo nasa harap ang tayo mo. Dapat thick din ito para mas madaling i-paddle, mas stable and more forgiving in case of mis-steps.
As one improves, hindi na maganda ang mataas na rocker at makapal na board. Gusto na nya yong matulis para mabilis. Ang mataas na rocker ay pumipreno sa tubig (imagine mo na lang kung bakit). On the contrary, gusto na nya ng mataas na tail rocker (meaning upturned yong tail) para maneuverable. A pronounced tail rocker is not advisable for beginner because its unstable. Finally, gusto na rin nya ng thinner or lighter na board. Mahirap i-vertical and makapal na board.

Last year nag-champion si Junior Ventura sa longboard comp sa Lanuza using a Town & Country high-performance board na hindi galig sa Aloha na sponsor nye. Hindi nya ginamit yong McTavish Fireball nya kahit required ito sa contract nya with Aloha. Bakit kamo? Masyadong malaki at mabilis ang alon kaya kung gagamitin nya yong pang-small-wave McTavish, sigurado hindi sya mananalo.
Kung 2 feet ang alon sa La Union, paano ka makaka-ride kung kasabay mo sina Ian Saguan, Kuya Chu, Buji at iba pa na magagaling (na gamit ay small-wave boards) kung ang gamit mo ay, say Rusty shortboard na high-performance? Kung mag-fish ka ay baka may chance ka pa.

Kung overhead naman ang alon, paano ka mag-ee-enjoy kung ang kasabay mo si Moro, Kaw-kaw at iba pa na gamit nila ay high-performance boards at yong sa yo ay NSP? Baka kay Lovely ay drop-in ka pa.
Mas enjoy ang surfing kung may nakukuha kang magagandang alon.
Tingnan mo yong boards ng mga marurunong na. Pati ang mga locals. Maputi din yong mga boards nila. Pero hindi rich kids ang mga yon. Kasi nga dumaan na sila sa lumang boards at ang gamit nila ngayon ay mga bago at ankop sa galing nila.
Ngayong kung nasa shoulder ka lang at kumukuha ng latak na alon, ay huwag mo na sigurong insultuhin yong mga nauna na sa yo dahil lang sa yellow ang board mo at “maputi” ang board nila.

Wala kang board? Mukhang hindi ka rin marunong mag-surf ano?
Pero kung mang-lait ka ng mga surfers, akala mo ang galing mo. Sila lahat ay “poser”, “maporma” at “jologs”, ikaw lang ang magaling. “Mr. Pro Surfer” pa ang pinili mong nickname! Binaliktad mo yata lahat ah. Ayos ka bata! Ituloy mo yan.
Magugustuhan ng mga chicks ang jerks na tulad mo. Yayain mo si Kisses na sumama sa yo sa Zambales sa next surf trip mo.
