    Ideal longboard length

    Getting myself a nice longboard this summer for those small mushy days here on long island. What do you all recommend? I'm thinking around 8'6" but open for opinions!

    Longboard question of the ages: Is a longboard 9'0" and above or 3' taller than you are?

    Same height, I got a 8'1" McTavish that works really well, but if you want a "true" longboard I suggest 9'

    That is, of couse, if you're not the best at longboarding and you just want to make it through the summer

    6'2". Maybe a 6'4" if you're over the age of 40.

    I've got a 9'4'' and works great. Just make sure you look for a longboard with lots of volume and width.

    Exactly what I was going to say. Go over 9' and spend the summer learning how to walk the plank.
