Paddling a longboard is relatively easy, but you should know how to do it right. The trick is in the weight distribution, and paddling angle.
Longboards traditionally start at 9 feet and can easily reach 12 feet. So, that’s between three and six feet more than a standard 6′ shortboard.
As a result, paddling a longboard is not the same as paddling a classic surfboard. But they’re extremely fun to ride.
