For the love of longboarding.



Longboarding – surfing with a surfboard taller than 9 inch – is a whole different feel than when you’re out with a shortboard. Instead of an explosive style of surfing, you can relax and let the wave do the work. And who isn’t for relaxing? Surfing is all about catching waves and enjoying the ride and you’re guaranteed to catch a lot of waves with a longboard. While you’re gliding effortlessly on the water, you’ll notice it’s not about making short, sharp turns, but about feeling how the wave rolls underneath you and you can just roll with it. It’s all about the excitement of the ride. Instead of having only the focus on performance, it is smooth cruizing, pure soft energy.

At first, I didn’t realize how longboarding can put you up to a challenge as well. Until I finally got one in my quiver*. I’ve been trying out more complex tricks and it really takes time working on noseriding, practicing the Hang-five or the Hang-ten – believe me, it’s not as easy as it looks! But all is good on a longboard and the reason why there is such a big love for this style of surfing is that it’s really all about catching a lot of waves. It’s relaxing, soothing to the bone and it so, so much fun. It is, to me, surfing in it’s purest form.  ♥
