The boys are going surfing in Jacó and I'd like to buy surfboards rather than rent them. Although they rarely surf, they go often enough they'd get plenty of use out of a board. Besides, we don't have very good renting karma.
Can I buy a good-enough surfboard for 6' tall teens for under $100? If not, what can I reasonably expect to pay? There must be surfers out there… please give me hints on surfboard shopping. There are a few on the post I referenced above and I'll check those out. I'm looking on craig's list. But when it comes right down to it, I have nada clue. About surfboards.
UPDATE: Carton's Surfshop came highly recommended by Keith and a couple of other people so they will start there. Renting is $12 for a half day… they can start out renting, price the boards, learn something about them and then we'll see. Buying a good used one is where we'd start so if anyone has recommendations on that, I'm all ears! Pura vida.
