Thought it was a prone board.  Crazy sizes for a sup.  Super on the wave I bet.  How big are you?
Nice stick by the way.

Big green, keep us posted on that ride.

And thanks for the clarification whoever called it. Having a 10’+ board doesn’t make it a longboard. It’s shape, rails and nose and how you ride it.

That 9’6”, especially with its narrow width, is a classic example. Laird’s original boards were relatively narrow too. Only when things went mass market did we see 32” wide boards. Super hard to do traditional longboard moves on those unless you’re  packing so serious size as they don’t fit into the wave.

Make pretty,if you can boys. Shoulders loose, back arched, feet together and step to the nose when you can.
