I'll start with straps. More interested in carving than jumping (although sometimes it's just rude not to). For now I'm mostly going to be in flat-to-choppy water, but the intention/hope is going to be that I get to play in waves later.
I'm trying to figure out which features to avoid, either because they're going to make learning particularly difficult, or because they're going to leave me with a board that I have no use for after I've gone up the first section of the learning curve. If we were talking in TT terms, we'd have the big, flat door at one end of the spectrum (easy to learn to ride, but useless for anything except for light wind lawn-mowing once you've got waterstarts nailed) and smaller, skatier things at the other extreme (great fun if you know what you're doing, but almost impossible to learn on). I guess I'm trying to understand what the directional equivalent of those extremes would be.
