any good cheap surfboard brands?
I live in georgia on south carolinas border. my family is gonna be spending some time over summer in daytona,the gulf coast, and possibly costa rica (a break day on a church mission trip while there). last year at camp a lot of my friends could surf and I was going to learn...but we got hit by a hurricane so I couldnt and a lot of people I know are very protective of their boards...they have like ripcurl and al merrick shortboards. I really want to learn...are there any cheap surfboards or stores yall know of that sell some good but not necesarily namebrand boards?
