Roundhousesearch for term

A more advanced maneuver where the surfer doubles back and hits or turns off the top of the oncoming section of wave. A great way to burn extra speed and a big open section.

A surfboard usually over 7 feet long with a rounded nose and large center fin and smaller side fins. Longboards are very easy to surf, easy to paddle, and relatively easy to learn. They are less maneuverable than shortboards but generally more graceful and fun. They make catching waves significantly easier thanks to their increased volume, floatation and glide. They make the basics of surfing easier to master thanks to their stability, however their increased mass makes then respond slower. Shortboarders often complain about the advantage longboarders have as they are able to catch waves easier (sometimes even before the wave is close to breaking) and paddle faster.
