The longboard is primarily a single finned surfboard with large rounded nose and length of 9 to 12 feet. Noseriders are a kind of longboards which enable the rider to walk to the tip and nose ride. Also called a “Mal”, which is a shortened version of Malibu the most popular longboard wave.

Longboards are the original, and very first variety of board used in standup surfing. Ever since the sixth-century the ancient Hawaiians have used 8-to-24-foot solid wooden boards when practicing their ancient art of he’e nalu. Surfing was brought to the Hawaiian Islands by Polynesians and has since become popular worldwide.
