We were taught that bigger isn't necessarily better but, in this particular case, it just might be. Here’s why you shouldn’t shy away from longboarding this season…

It’s safe to say that the art of longboarding is timeless. 

You could easily say that longboard surfing is a state of mind, a meditation or that place of ‘zen’.

Here’s Why You SHOULD Join The Longriding World

1.Wave-catching advantage

With a longboard it’s way easier to catch waves, meaning, you'll end up riding more waves than many others.

2.New challenges

Take on a new challenge learning complicated tricks on the nose of the board.

3.Small waves are still fun

One-footers? Don’t sweat it. Your longboard will still work its magic.

4.Longboards are ideal for making friends

Invite new friends to catch some party waves or why not try tandem surfing? After all, sharing is caring.

5.Make a comeback with ease

Getting back into the ocean after an injury or some time off? It's waaaay easier when you’ve got a longboard.

6.Don’t take surfing too seriously

Take off, pop up and relax, enjoying the ride in its purest form.
