This gives you Longboard stability, floatation and ease of paddling.
It is also the right equipment for traditional Longboard style surfing
- you can walk it, perch yourself on the nose, and experience the
glide - but it is shorter and incorporates Shortboard technology
that allows for the more contemporary style of high performance
Longboarding - floaters, re-entries, snap-backs. Do with it what
you want. It is great for getting the maximum amount of fun out
of small days, while allowing you to push the limits of Longboard
riding in large waves as well.
It is an ideal board for beginners, as well as for those who want
to experience the glide without abandoning altogether the contemporary
high-energy Shortboard style.
