I am fairly new to SUP'ing. And am about to by my first board. I have looked around a bit and come across the Simon Anderson 10' x 32. Looks good. I am just on 80 kg and 1.80m. Also this board is in my budget range. Looking for an honest review. Cheers
I'm a beginner surf SUP rider, same size and weight as you and love this board. At 157l you can stand easily out the back without having to always keep moving, it paddles well in flat and the chop. Deck grip is comfortable and the board quality seems good. Easy to turn to catch a wave It comes with a well made bag - mine did!
I think you wouldn't go wrong as a first board, but as always try lots of others.
Have a look at other posts here such as
got this second hand carrier a few weeks back i'm 108kgs and it goes great for me.
i love this sport with passion
if your planning on mainly surfing 80% of the time and say 20% flat water paddling it's a great board but you will grow out of this board quickly , so IMO go a but shorter you know 9"6 range
Cheers guys ... thanks for your thoughts ... will let you know how I go
