For many surfers, the idea of a 'High Performance Longboard' is something of a contradiction in terms. After all, the longboard is long (obviously), wide, and boasts plenty of volume. That makes them an ideal choice for novice riders who need help catching waves, but the only time a seasoned rider might need one is when the waves are low and slow. If you want high performance, conventional wisdom would suggest that you need to go for a shorter board style.
