I am wanting to start surfing in the new year. I am 27 years old and have always, always wanted to do it. I lived in Yorkshire all my life so my chances were limited. I am now living in London and obviously I am a lot closer to Cornwall so there is no better time to start!
I have a few questions. First off, how long does the average newbie take to be ablet to stand and ride a few basic waves? What do I need to look for regarding boards and wet suites? Which are the best surf schools?
I know you have all probably read posts like this hundreds of times over before, but any info would be gratefully accepted.

Actually Yorkshire is near to some very good spots, so you have kind of missed out there!
I would advise getting a few lessons from a reputable school, they will advise u also on what kind o board to get due to size, ability etc.
Then, you may think of going back to Yorkshire and north east coast for surfing as its less crowds etc.
