I havn't tried a short board yet, just a few fun boards ranging from 7'2"-9', I actually have a short board at home but I need to do some glass repair on it.
I've got a place in Corolla, and have tried surfing the OBX, but I seem to miss the storms that bring decent surf. I will say, that the breaks there are good for beginners, unless you're trying your hand at Kite Surfing which I took up last fall, on the sound side, and let me tell you, OUCH!
