Hang Ten: the ultimate longboard surfing maneuver | Photo: Lallande/Vans

When we perform a hang ten, our feet end up at the nose of the longboard, with your toes curled over the edge. It’s the ultimate longboard surfing gesture; it’s an old school statement.

Noseriding and tip riding are two critical stages in the art of hanging ten. The first 36 inches of a board is considered the nose; the first 16 inches is considered the tip of the longboard.

Riding the nose of a longboarding is still considered by many the ultimate classic surfing maneuver. The old school trick that never goes out of fashion. The iconic moment of any surfer while enjoying a summer ride at Malibu.
