FAQ - Frequently asked questions

You can find all the important information about buying a longboard in our FAQs and our big surfboard guide.

A longboard for surfing is a surfboard that is characterised by its elongated and voluminous shape. Compared to other types of surfboards such as shortboards or funboards, a longboard is usually longer and wider. A real longboard starts at a length of 9 feet (approx. 274 cm) or longer.

Longboards have a wide nose (front) and a round, narrow tail (back). They offer a lot of buoyancy and stability on the water, which makes it easier for surfers to recognise waves early, paddle them and glide on them. Due to their characteristics, longboards are particularly suitable for small to medium-sized waves and offer a relaxed and cruising surfing experience.

Traditionally, longboards were used in the early days of surfing and have a long history in surf culture. They are still popular today with advanced surfers who want to enjoy the relaxed and elegant surfing on a longboard.

The ideal size of a longboard depends on your height, weight and surfing level. In general, longboards are longer and wider than other types of surfboards. A length between 9 and 12 feet (approx. 274 to 366 cm) offers more stability, while shorter longboards are more manoeuvrable. Choose the size according to your individual needs and preferences.
