Drop knee turns , noserides , cross stepping etc. I thought if you wanted to do airs you should ride a shortboard. But hey thats just me. What do you peoples think?
There's at least two styles of longboarding: noseriding and high preformance. Usually a really good noserider is not going to have high preformance (just not built for it).
But, I'm with you as far as what I do...I ride my longboard for noseriding (can't actually do it yet, but I'm learning) and glide and extended smooth flowing turns, relaxed surfing, and I ride my shortboard for the high preformance.
