You can pick up a board a wallmart but will probably regret it. Yolo, Surftech, Naish, Starboard, C4 Waterman, Hobie, all great brands with lots of experience with making boards. I went with Starboards because of 2 reasons. They were one of the few around that i could try that was in the size i was looking for. And they have made windsurf boards for a long time now. I figure that since they have been building long wide boards for so long it's an easy transition for them. It might be more of a challenge for a company that has been making 6' surfboards their entire existence. That said, my wife has a Surftech Larid board which seems to be faster than my board, but that's likely because it's much smaller.

Sizing is based more on your weight than size.
