LONGBOARD SURFBOARD GUIDE

Longboards or malibu surfboards are perfect for beginners learning to surf or advanced surfers who just want to go surfing on a longer board.

Longboards are generally considered to be sufboards over 9 foot. They make small days fun and are really easy to catch waves with so are just fun to ride.

 

OUR LONGBOARD SURFBOARD TEMPLATE

Our longboard template has been refined over the years to a proven design and it continues to get consistently great feedback. It has a fairly flat rocker under the chest to make paddling and wave catching easier with lift in the tail for turning and the nose to stop nosediving. The rails are full and forgiving making it easier to recover when over correcting. This is the best board n the market for learning to surf!

 

WHO SHOULD BUY A LONGBOARD?

Longboards suit a wide variety of surfers. Our longboards are popular with:

  • People learning to surf
  • People looking for something easy to paddle and catch waves
  • People struggling to catch waves on other boards
  • People looking to have fun in small surf when shortboards struggle

TYPES OF LONGBOARD SURFBOARDS FOR SALE ONLINE

We stock a range of cheap longboards for sale online. Depending on stock we have both epoxy and fibreglass longboards. Epoxy boards are considered lighter and do resist the small dings a little better but are harder to repair yourself.

 

ADVANTAGES OF LONGBOARDS

Longboard surfboards make waves easy to catch, easy to stand on and perform tricks and manoeuvres on the board like nose riding and cross stepping and hanging ten. Good in small waves and at large wave point breaks. Malibu surfboards allow the surfer to stand up early on the wave and provide better stability.

 

DISADVANTAGES OF LONGBOARDS

Longboard surfboards can be hard to paddle through waves in the impact zone and white wash when waves are bigger. A mini-mal surfboard or fish surfboard can be better for learners because of this.
