Try the wave G2 Caster Board for cool street surfing
Review of Street Surfing The Wave G2 Caster Board by HTilly

Advantages: Its fantastic fun and looks cool
Disadvantages: you do not look cool on it if you are over 17

I came across the G2 Caster Board recently when I was researching products for my new store, I found a manufacturer in China that produced them and asked for a price, and a sample. I got my sample two weeks later, the first thing I noticed was the weight, ... Read review

Circle one review.
Review of Circle One Wetsuits by pannell2612

Advantages: Competative price/durable

As a company circle one has a good reputation for making good quality wetsuits. My current winter wetsuit is from them and I find that it is exceptionally durable and comfortable. Some of the more expensive branded products (quicksilver, rip curl etc) do ... Read review

That is considerably better. Even though it isn't particulary long, it tells me everything I'd need to know, and it's explained in a way that even a non surfer can understand. by reddragonflame87
Sorry to rate SH, but there is actually very little information about the 'suit here. Even though I'm not a surfer myself, if I was I would want to know how easy it is to get in and out of, how thermal it is - as a winter suit I'm guessing it's meant to be warm - and whether it's fairly water resistant. Does it stick to the 'board if you lay flat? Does it attract sand? Let me know if you edit and I will happily come and rerate :-) by reddragonflame87

Bic 7"2 honest opinion.
Review of Bic 72" by pannell2612

Advantages: Cheaper and stronger than a custom. High re-sale value.
Disadvantages: Heavy, Un-manouverable. Too much float.

A Bic board is an obvious choice as you have probably seen a lot of them about. However, it really is a beginner's board- and that's it. It's great when you are learning as it is indestructible (made of plastic) and sturdy but if you surf regularly, you w ... Read review

bunty's got a website somewhere. I got taught how to shape by that local hero! by Pleasureman
hi local hero is based in wadebrige. they make quality boards. prices varrie, mine was 250 pounds. to barney: i usualy surf down at polzeath in the camel estury. but have traveled around the country and been to france for a surfing trip. i like the atmosphere at polzeath the most though. the best waves ive surfed are on the west coast of france though. i used to body board but it is very different to surfing. its a completly different thing, but mainly different waves. me and my mates are planning a sponsored tour around europ for when we get out of college or by the latest after uni. thanks very much for reading fabian m. by lazzy_surfer

Review of Alder by lucyw

Advantages: Very warm and easy to get on and off
Disadvantages: Needs to be fitted well (just like any other wetsuit)

Alder wetsuits tend to have a pretty big reputation, perhaps not as big as others, but they should do! I used this wetsuit when surfing in Wales this May and i have to say it was great! I hired it from the local surf shop, PJ's in my size and found it ... Read review
