    People who are learning to surf often ask about the kind of surfboard that is best to learn on. The most common answer that you get to this question is that bigger and longer surfboards make learning easier. But instead of getting a surfboard that is as long as ten feet, it is recommended that you buy an eight foot funboard whether it is a generic brand or a high performance brand like, Channel Islands Surfboards or JS surfboards, that you choose.

    You must also consider how long you will be using the surfboard. You wont be a beginner for ever so you cannot be buying a surfboard that is going to be good for you for just a few months. As someone who is learning to surf, a wide and stable surfboard will help you stand up with ease. And since longer surfboards make it easier for you to catch waves, you will prefer a longer one. But then a longer surfboard whether it is made by JS surfboards or Channel Islands Surfboards, also makes it difficult to turn and it wont be very long before you start practicing to turn even if you are a beginner. A funboard surfboard makes turning a lot easier and it will permit you to ride the same board for much longer as you get better at surfing.

    Another thing that one should consider before selecting from Channel Islands Surfboards or the JS surfboards is larger surfboards are more difficult to paddle out on. For beginners in surfing, paddling out into the waves is not easy and a larger board will tend to get pushed around even more by the waves. Beginner surfers would do well to paddle into the waves by making use of a smaller board. Funboards come in a more high performance shape than longboards, and while it may be at the most just one foot shorter, there could be one third less foam used in the board giving it less pushback from the waves.

    No matter whether you choose JS surfboards or Channel Islands Surfboards another thing that you need to keep in mind is how easy your chosen surfboard is to handle. A lot of new surfers dont think of where they will keep their surfboard once they are out of the water. You need a place to store it and if yours is a ten foot surfboard and you have a nine foot ceiling at home, storing it will put you in a dilemma. Also, carrying a 10 foot surfboard on the top of your car can be a pain unless you have a strong longboard rack or pickup truck. An eight foot surfboard is a lot easier to handle and maneuver. Other things that play a role in the selection of a surfboard are your body weight and the kind of surf and waves you will be surfing.
