Longboards are way easier to learn on. They float and plane. Shortboards must be launched into much punchier waves. Watch the video "Surf for Life". Great video for even non-surfers. None of the older folks are on shortboards. Shortboarding these days is more like skateboarding. Longboards are more flowing and graceful if not boring for some folks. Learning to surf is not easy but if you are fit and determined, you can do it. It is very much a "learn by doing" thing and you must put a lot of time into it.
Good Luck, Solarae
