Invariably the shortboarders would either get the wave breaking on their head or have a short ride which was completely different to the longboarders who could catch the wave earlier and have a good 100m of wave face to play with.
So for your average surfer riding an average wve, is riding a shorter board just a bit too much hard work when they could be catching loads of waves on a 9 footer?

I love longboarding...In North Devon, we have a special club called the Doggers http://www.northdevondoggers.co.uk
Based at the back of Saunton carpark, there's an awesome vibe, speed-dogging socials, party's, trips to other well known carparks abroad....... think about joining.

Indeed. Use the best tools for the job. Same with skiing / snowboarding. It's the superiority complex that some people have that what they do is so much better than anything else that I find so lame. Open your mind, discover and enjoy.
