    I think you should do both! And is skating hard? When you first start it may be, but after a few days you will start to feel comfortable on the board, and you will be able to start doing tricks. You should probably not go to the skatepark straight away, unless you can do a few basic tricks, such as the ollie.

    Maybe you should surf when the waves are good, and skate the rest of the time? When buying a skateboard, make sure to get one that is over $100, as quality is important. If you buy anything less than that, you will probably just end up having to get it replaced. Also, don't skate when it is wet, because you will ruin your bearings!

    I hope that helped,

    Skating is definately cheaper and easier than surf. Also you can skate any day of the year you want. You just grab your board and go outside. Surfing in the other hand is more expensive as the board coasts more and you will need some other equipment. Moreover you cant surf whenever you like except you live in California. I would go for skateboard

    Surfing! I would go for surfing. I've been planning to surf for quite sometime and I am definitely going to start this year. I have a surfboard which my brother gave to me last year when I told him wanted to surf. He's got quite a few boards for himself. I am thinking about buying a rash guard tee. I found this Billabong tee quite decently priced but the logo print is too large. … guard-tee/

    Skate and surf. I wouldn't know why you have to choose. Unless you are extremely good at one and you are sponsored to do it, then you could consider to focus on only one. But I think thats not going to happen. Another reason why you should do both is because the 2 sports are so different from each other. And if you don't have the money or don't want to buy a surfboard, then just buy a skimboard, it's a lot cheaper and is also alot of fun. This type of skimboard is the one I have to  and is great to learn: (you can also buy these at the beach for a cheaper price). As you advance in skimboarding you might want to buy the other, more expensive types of skimboard but I'm still using this type and I'm still having fun(doing this for over 4 years now).
