Which for surfing Burn or Biscuit

I know this is a bit of a mad question and i think i know the answer but here goes . I've got a Burn and a Biscuit I've just bought the Biscuit only just been in a pool with it really to practice rolling it but i want to get into playboating so thats why i got it.Anyway my question is i'm going surfing tomorrow in the sea with a couple of my friends and i'm not sure which boat to take.Is the Biscuit better for surfing in the sea than the Burn or is it only good for a stationary wave as one of my friends thinks the Burn will be better in the sea because it is longer but i thought that the Biscuit would be much better

A ocean wave is the same principle as a river wave. Go with the Biscuit.

Can certainly do more trickery w/ the biscuit, though if you're just figuring out how to use it, the Burn will likely be easier to catch the wave with (speed) and easier to roll (longer boat, less aggressive chine?).

Why not just take both and play with each one there?

the biscuit will be bad ass in the waves. the burn will stab the nose if they jack up real steep. Enjoy that biscuit!

Definitely Biscuit. If a surfer can catch the wave, you'll have no trouble in the Biscuit. I discovered the great thing about ocean surfing is if you get stuck in a wave/hole you just wait a little while and it disappears. Just make sure you don't get slammed into the bottom of the ocean upside down or into somebody else.
