    longboards......

    Hey guys
    I was wondering how many longboarders are here. i never got into the shortboards ( bc i could never get up on them) and always had more fun on longboards.........

    if so what boards do you have and shapers.......

    boards

    Hells yeah to longboards! I've ridden boards from 9'6" to 6'3" I've definitely enjoyed riding shorter boards, but for me, there's something about a longboard I really dig.

    I have a 9'2" Hawaiian Pro Designs (Takayama design) In the Pink shaped by Tommy Maus in Oceanside. sweet board. polyester. Primarily a nose rider, but a heavy board with some ass behind it.

    Also have a 9'2" Stewart ESP Epoxy Board that is light, fast and maneuverable. Love it. Super light and a wave catcher. This replaced a 9 0 Colin McPhillips shape that I had a blast on. It had lot's of nose rocker, a pulled back tail and a big belly and nose. This board was the thinnest longboard I've ever seen, yet would nose ride and rip.

    Last board in the lb quiver is a Ted Kearns/ Gale Force Glass hp longboard shaped in OBX. Ted has moved on to Hawaii, but his boards are sweet. Even though I broke this board and had it repaired, I love to ride it, very quick, turns on a dime and nose rides pretty sweet.

    I know, there was a longboard thread just about a month ago, but hey, it's fun to share about our quivers.

    roll call

    9'6 Robert August What I Ride (2 of these)
    9'6 Todd Proctor custom-made squash tail
    9'2" Channel Islands pintail (no idea of model name)
    8'2 7-S quad fin
    7'8 Bing (no idea of model name; my first board from when I started in 1979)

    I very much want to purchase a CI Water Hog....friend of mine has ridden 2 diff sizes of this stick (he lives in Hawaii) & raves about it's superb wave-catching chops & above-average maneuverability / speed in the water.

    Also have 6'8 Claude Codgen from 1979. A beauty. But not a log...

    Longboards are for chicks and old dudes... Just kidding I have a 9'0 Marty Keesacker round pin tanker style LB for super summer time smallness. I have ridden an Austin soul glide model and want to get one...pretty awesome... even I can noseride on it.

    Interesting set of 'surfboard rules' you've concocted there.

    Why do you believe that the CI sticker is verboten on a longboard...? Or are you saying that a CI sticker transplanted to a popout is verboten? Clarification would be interesting.
