In the longboard sizes variety we found , those under 9 feet (about 2.74 meters) are often referred to as ” Malibu ”. Longboards are usually relatively thick and have a rounded top also called ” nose ”.
Beginners and slightly advanced surfers should have access to the Malibu (funboard), which is the easiest way to “surf” and keep the balance.
Historically until the 1960s only longboards were used, so longboarding is considered [[Old School]] and is usually operated with style consciousness.
The most popular trick of the longboard is the ” Hang Ten ”, also called ” Nose Ride ”, with all ten toes standing over the top of the board. Well-known longboarders are Joel Tudor from [[United States / USA]] and Bonga Perkins from [[Hawaii]].
Many think that surfings are just what shortboards and aggressive surfing is. Why not smoothly glide along the waves on a 9-length longboard with the right technique? We teach all surfers and also surf all different board types. The head of our partner surf school has a giant experience in longboard surfing itself and has developed the training method for longboard surfing over the years. We will be happy to help you, whether you are a beginner or an experienced wave rider. Cross stepping, floaters, nose riding, paddling out, turtle and many other techniques, which make longboarding so attractive, are trained with us.longboard
