Add me to the Pearson Arrow longboard fan club. I have the 10-foot Laird, 28 1/2 wide, thin rails ... it's the old Surftech version that I've beaten up until it's unbelievably godawful ugly but still fully functional. Must be 8-9 years old (stumbled onto it used, cheap), but it's the most "surfboard"-like SUP I've ever ridden. Cranks big bottom turns, has great glides, nose-rides like a champ. I think it's those thin rails that are magic.

So here is the short vid of my very first waves on a longboard sup. Also the first time on a sup in 7 months. I did shy away from the little end sections because i injured my knee and ribs in a decent wavesailing crash the other day... Bottom line: Lame! ;)

Thanks for the update... looks like you got some nice surf to break it in!

I had a chance to ride my buddy Cisco's 10' NFA in Portugal.... it's a great looking board!

Learning to turn one of these? Watch longboard videos on YouTube. Seeing the folks at Duct Tape or Surf Relik events will change your mind about throwing big boards around. If you canít turn a longboard, itís not the board. Donít ask me how I know lol.

Totally agree with you. It's not the board, it's the rider!  :)

Hey Patrice there uses his paddle, high overhead and backwards,  as a counterweight when heís arching up front. Never thought of that. Timi get on that  ;D

Patrice can really swing that 10 footer around. Loved the 360 he did.
