I could have posted this in the long boarding forum but I figured that more people will see it here, thus more success and personal input.
I'm looking for a longboard to buy myself for my birthday and figured I would ask some experienced surfers on the intermediate brands.
1. What brand would you suggest an intermediate surfer purchase when dealing with longboards?
2. What measurements generally decide whether a board is a longboard or a shortboard?
3. How would you rate a Mini-mal?
4. Can you get a mini-mal with a strap? Why do some boards have straps and others do not?
Thanks for reading and hopefully these questions aren't too "shubish" for ya fellas.
