Look... this is as easy as it gets. If you want to graduate to an intermediate level or advanced, don't let the guys out there tell you otherwise, this is a GREAT board to get started on. You'll be able to get comfortable feeling the wave rush behind you, find your footing, and maintain balance, without the discomforts of riding a more advanced level board.
Let them say what they want about a Wavestorms, I get it. What really matters is you having fun and enjoying your day out on the waves. This is the board for you if this message resonates. I've been there and I've had so much fun with this board and now offer it up to you! Enjoy and take care!
