Always proud to say that I love small waves.
Most of us live hours away from the nearest surf spot. When you get to the beach with your brand new ultra thin short board thruster only to find out that the swell isn’t really filling in the way you expected it to, don’t lock yourself up in that hotel room just yet.
There’s actually a handfull of little gems out there in the line up just waiting to be ridden if you only keep an open mind and learn to accept a simple fact… a bigger board floats and glides better than a short, thin, narrow one on really puny waves.
To my full-time shortboarder friends who are sadly always grumpy when the waves are vertically challenged,do give your board's bigger cousin a try and hopefully in the process fall in love with long boarding too.
See how much more fun you’ll be having when you actually have a choice:)
