Hi there, I posted awhile back about riding unbroken waves on my 8'8 longboard. I have fixed the problem and almost never pearl. I also have taken drops fairly well My next question is that my friend has a 6'8 shortboard that he said i can use on sunday (there's supposed to be a nice swell moving through on that day). Should i attempt the shortboard? or just stick with my longboarding for right now?
