Well I just started surfing and got a "beginner" board (Thrasher) and my third time on it the board folded in half. I was not doing anything funny just riding with slack in the rope (I was happy about that) got a bit over the front end balance wise and rolled into the water. Absolutely nothing violent!!!
Came up and the board was folded and creased where my front foot rides. "Ridiculous"
Is this a normal occurrence? I got this board because I wanted a beginner board that my family and friends could ride.
By the way it is the 5'6" version and I way 194 lbs.
Crappy end to a great day!
