I have one video of the only few waves which I have ridden on the 13 foot Ghost, it shows the correct riding position, on waves which the malibus and shortboards can't make it through on. One major advantage i have over you in this debate is that unlike you I have not only ridden both longboard types but I surf with malibu riders all the time, so I know the difference whereas you are just assuming. In the majority of sessions the malibus simply can't make the waves which I'm making successfully. This causes the other riders a lot of frustration. It's easy to look at a video and go 'Oh yeah I'd be making that AND doing lots of turns as well' but experience shows otherwise.
