longboard is a sublime and elegant surfboard, but it is not only suitable for beginners. Surfing with a longboard requires real skill. It allows you to glide on the waves and get an extra boost when you take off. With us, you can choose specifically from a selection of Malibu surfboards that are suitable for a wide range of surfing conditions. Longboarding has its roots in the past, with surfing legends like Greg Noll and The Duke shaping this style of surfing. Smooth turns and graceful tricks like noserides are often associated with longboarding. But longboards are not only suitable for small waves, they are also a perfect alternative to guns in big waves (Frag Greg Noll). Longboarding is very different from shortboarding.

If you're looking for a longboard for surfing, you've come to the right place. We offer a wide range of long surfboards that you can easily buy online. Find out more about the different boards on our website, and if you have any questions, we'll be happy to help.

When buying your longboard for surfing in our surf shop, you can expect a classic longboard that is around 9 to 10 feet long, 22 inches wide and 3-4 inches thick. These boards are often associated with the "way of life" in California, where graceful surfers glide through the water and have a good time by the sea - just the "good old days". In the 60s, singlefin surfing, hang fives and hang tens were the height of emotion when there were no shortboards, fishboards, funboards, hybrid boards and minimums. 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 well suited for surfing in the following 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 break gently peeling

  • To surf big waves

Whether you're looking for that nostalgic feeling of the good old days or 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.
