You get more flash from a shortboarder ripping apart a chest-high wave than Greg Knoll dropping into Pipe at 30 feet.
Excellent illustration! And it is so true! Even though I favor shortboarding I have preferred to watching longboarding since shortboarders ripping apart small waves doesn't really appeal to me that much! My whole perception to longboarding has changed.
If this SW meet hits off then im going to have to pinch somebodies longboard for a quick go if possible lol sounds like great fun
