I live on cape cod and it seems like there are a fair share of surfers around but I am not one of them. I would like to start surfing but I have no idea what to look for when shopping for a board. I would like a long board just so i can cruise around (i'm not looking for speed) and i know that if i get a long board it might have to be a big-a** board since I am 6`4" and 280 lbs. Can any of you guys out there that might surf point me in the right direction towards getting started and give me a rough guess as to how much a board would run me? thanks for any help.
