Longboards for All Levels
Whether you are moving away from the likes of a mini mal or want a longboard surfboard for the smaller days, finding the right board for you is what we are here for.
A long board will allow you to match the speed of the wave when paddling and provides a great platform for those who enjoy manoeuvring around the board, to the nose and tail and performing a different version of surfing. The 8'0 longboards are always a good point to start and at Sideways we offer a nice range of beginner and performance longboards to cover all types of surfers.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is a Longboard easier than a shortboard?
A longboard surfboard is easier to surf in regards to having more volume, buoyancy and paddle power. You have more board under you for paddling and standing. However when it comes to duck diving a longboard there is a fine technique which will take practise for the bigger surf days.
Can you surf big waves on a longboard?
Absolutely! Many advanced surfers choose bigger boards for bigger waves for stability. However most longboarders opt for smaller waves from 1-3ft so that can enjoy dancing on the water and practising their 'hang tens'
What volume longboard should I get?
Most longboards volume is between 55-75 litres pending exactly how big you wish to surf your board. When it comes to volume and size it really is a personal choice and can also come down to how big the board is and if you can transport it easily.
