Longboards are still a popular choice of surfboard that can range from a basic cruiser, to the more high performance longboard. A standard longboard comes with a slight concave up in the nose area for nose riding. The high performance longboard usually has a more tapered rail for more of a performance, sensitive feel during turns. These surfboards start at 9'-0", with the exception of the Sauritch Mini Longboard, which generally starts at 8'-0" and goes up to 8'-11". This model works well for smaller surfers and can be a great board for a beginner that plans on transitioning down to a shorter surfboard in the future.
