Longboards - Buy your surfboard online
A longboard is a sublime and elegant surfboard that offers a unique experience for beginners and experienced surfers alike. It requires true skill to glide on the waves and take advantage of the extra boost on take-off. In our surf shop, you can specifically choose from a selection of Malibu surfboards that are suitable for different surf conditions. The roots of longboarding lie in the past and were shaped by surf legends like Greg Noll and The Duke. Smooth turns and graceful tricks like noserides are typical of longboarding. However, it is important to note that longboards are not only suitable for small waves, but can also be a perfect alternative to guns in big waves (Ask Greg Noll). Longboarding is very different from shortboarding.

When buying your longboard for surfing, you can expect a classic longboard that is usually around 9 to 10 feet long, 22 inches wide and 3-4 inches thick. This type of board is often associated with the "way of life" in California, where surfers glide gracefully through the water and have a good time by the sea - the "good old days". In the 60s, singlefin surfing, hang fives and hang tens were the high points when shortboards, fishboards, funboards, hybrid boards and minimums didn't exist. Although longboards were increasingly displaced by shorter surfboards at the end of the 60s, they have recently been experiencing a strong revival - retro is in, baby!
Longboards are good for surfing in different situations:
- At surf spots with small, weak waves.
- In the flow of the wave with a relaxed and calm longboard surfing style
- On days with small waves that gently peel
- For surfing big waves
Whether you're looking for the nostalgic feeling of times gone by or striving for a new challenge in the water, a longboard for surfing offers you a unique experience and allows you to enjoy the waves in a special way.
