I think it really comes down to the right board for conditions. Obviously. Duh. The point I was making is LBs aren't soley small wave boards, and just because you have a SB that has allot of foam dosn't make them obsolete, or not needed/wanted. Riding a LB in any wave is diffrent then a SB, and some people enjoy it. Therefore there not going anywhere.
Also was watching some clips on YouTube and found two clips that I feel should be placed here. Enjoy.
Bonga Perkins part in singlefin: yellow. Not posting this because his riding it at pipe, but because of what he says about it.
This is just a random clip I found, some of it is s bit to high performance for me. I do think at a certain point, like when you start doing airs you should just go to a SB. But there's some good surfing in there. And he's towing in to some big stuff in the beginning, variety of approaches. Enjoy.

But some LBers hate that approach. I personally love it. It's not all straight lines and nose rides. Long Boards can do so much more, especially with a thurster setup, which that guy was obviously using. Cool video.

Yea man I love whipping the LB around. After watching that clip a 2nd time, your right that guys style is pretty dope. Not to high performance at all, I don't know what I was thinking. I guess I was really just talking about the airs being a bit much. I enjoy to nose ride from time to time but when waves are good and I'm not thinking about it, my go to approach is to start whipping the LB around. So much fun. That's the beauty of getting HPLB, you can nose ride if you'd like, but when it's time to start loosening up a bit on a sizeable wave it really starts to shine.
