After seeing some videos etc. I've become interested in buying a "long board". It just seems they would be easier to stay on/stay in the pocket/hang 5/teach fat friends etc. The problem is I've never seen one that looks right to me in the store (Sacramento area). I don't have a clue who makes a "good" long board. I currently have (and am happy with) a Phase Five, however it's not as forgiving for newbies, plus I really want to hang 5..............dude<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0>

Shoreline used to make a 7 footer, I don't believe they stock it anymore. I would check out <BR>the Bicsport Mini Malibu - 7'3" I do believe, but not uber wide - 21"'ish <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> You can walk the nose and practice paddling in. Not sure that I would concur that it's the easiest board for newbies...although... it is stable and easy to ride. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.bicsportsurfboards.com" target="_blank">http://www.bicsportsurfboards.com</a> <BR> <BR>Another board that might be easier to find locally and is, no doubt, cheaper is HL's landlock in 5'11" round nose and meat cleaver fins <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>
