Beginner / Intermediate board for young girl

Message par nmpg » jeu. juil. 11, 2019 4:45 pm

What would be the best board for my daughter to improve her surf ?
She has 13 year, 160 cm and 50 kg and has been surfing for 2 years.
She catches waves, goes down the line and is starting to trim on the face of the wave.
I would like a board that catches waves easily, and suitable for small to medium beach break waves in Portugal.

From the Gong surf line I thought maybe the BATMOB 6'6 or the Catch 6'4.... Opinions ?

My Sister has quite the same level and is 16 years old, 45 kg. She has an acidolly 8', easy for take off and perfect for long and cool waves, but a little bit too hard for beachbreak waves so we bought à batmob 6'10, it is better !

I would advise the same batmob 6'10. It depends of what she is used to, Dont take too small, step by step !

I dont know the catch but it seems it needs to be more expérimented to make the Best of it !

Same as eguimi, you cannot go wrong with the batmob. And keep some size, they do not have tons of paddling power generally at this age, 6'10" seems nice.
