are great for any surfer looking for a more relaxed ride. Your 2 basic choices are a traditional longboard also referred to as Logs and a more performance evolved modern shape. Logs are usually retrospective of the golden eras from the 50's to the late 70's, these boards are strictly Single Fins
. Your modern choices are the pinnacle of what performance longboards ride today and are a great choice for anyone wanting to go that extra bit radical with their longboard surfing. Modern longboards utilise trailer side fins that are essential to pushing these boards to their limits. If you want to learn more about longboard fins, be sure to check out the Longboard Fin Guide
Traditional longboards where around long before shortboards especially that of the thruster fin set up. A lot of professional longboarders choose a more performance refined shape for competitions but there is still a lot of well known surfers who prefer to pay homage to the traditional feel of surfboards similar to those created in the 60's and 70's. Note: Some of these boards are created without modern shaping technologies and therefore take longer to complete. Popular models include the hand-shaped Thomas Bexon - Keeper
and the more performance orientated Powerhouse by Classic Malibu
to name a few.
