    I like to not hijack the mans thread. I just want to add to it if I can, or learn from it. Sorry to hear you dinged it going out in morning((( there are lots of talented repair guys around and be sure to get it fixed before getting it wet.

My funboard coasts right over some tall waves with no need of me having to turtle. Is the longboard going to be that much different paddling out? Any tips you can share?
    Gruviiiiii!!!
    In my opinion it is EASIER to paddle out with a longboard- unless it is over head or storm surf. You just have to be smart about it- time out your paddle out. Wait for the set to come thru and when there is no waves on the horizon- start paddling. If you time it out well, it only take a matter of seconds to get outside- since the board paddles much faster. Most times you don't even get your hair wet. I have found that turtling the board can be a real lose of time- unless your taking a huge wave on the head. Its better just to man up and take it head on- its not that bad, you can time it out and hit the wave at just right part that you will get right thru. its so much fun

    While my experience is pretty limited, I have to agree with this. When I pick a good spot and time it well my 9' 6" is easier to paddle out than my 8'.
