That is rad. Sweet motivation for my kids. We will have to bring out a long board next time for this.

Great video. I love the expression of joy on the girls face as she realizes they're going to stay up freeriding.

It surprised me too. I thought they would get up for a few seconds and fall. I never thought I would be pulling them around the lake. That longboard was WAY worth the $400, we had tons of fun on it, and new people loved riding on it. It made them feel like they were really surfing.

Robert, that is some COOL COOL footage. Really love the look of that wave too.


Where did you get the longboard if I may ask?

You won't regret it if you get one, it has been amazing how much fun we have had on this thing, well worth the money. And when we bring new people on the boat, they love to try it. It makes them feel like they are surfing in the ocean.

SMED has a twin fin cruiser like that from earlier this year. I think he was blowing it out a few weeks ago. I know it's not 8' but I think it's over 5'. It rides great, just a cool looking cruiser. I think there is a pic of it on his website. It's white with a green stripe down the middle. You might call him and check that out too.

That is great footage rags! Are you using hula-deck for traction, or wax?

Hey DTW, I know that Dave Pearson (the shaper for Props) took the dimensions for a 9 ft longboard and scaled it down to a 6'2" or 6'5" mini longboard for behind the boat. Its a crazy fun board, The rails are super thick and the boat is extremely floaty. A super fun ride for sure! I don't know when they will be for sale, but I can give Dave a call to at least find out. I may even be able to get you one if you are interested. Let me know and I'll send you some pics

Brian
