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 10í+ board doesnít make it a longboard. Itís shape, rails and nose and how you ride it.

That 9í6Ē, especially with its narrow width, is a classic example. Lairdís original boards were relatively narrow too. Only when things went mass market did we see 32Ē wide boards. Super hard to do traditional longboard moves on those unless youíre  packing so serious size as they donít fit into the wave.

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