I reckon when you learn on a big board, because it's more stable and easier to get up on, you gain confidence quicker, get the feeling of trim/flow and generate mo...

I've been chatting to Mark about the fatbat & having a think, I'm definately leaning toward something of that nature over a fish. I really just want a small wave board or a "one board" for road trips where I can't take two. So take 2 on this thread is what size are we recommending for a guy who's 1...
