I'll answer your question with another question... which area of your surfing are you looking to explore this year? If the answer is "noseriding" here are our top 3 recommendations...
1. Walks on Water
Super stable—the Walks on Water is the longboard we have cooked up with Andy Nieblas. It's a bulked-up log, with extra foam for tons of stability under foot. The wide tail encourages more active footwork, but this board will be tremendous for gaining confidence on the front-third of the board.

2. Sano Special
Paddling dream—The Sano Special is designed specifically for soft, log-friendly waves like San Onofre. Extremely stable from the nose, and extra curve in the tail, for a more favorable turning radius.
Catches waves like a dream and exceptional glide—even in the smallest, weakest surf. Great for building confidence on the nose.

Progressive—The Logistic model draws a heavy influence from the tried-and-true Lumberjack (and it's mid-60's influences) but features a few design enhancements, to give it slightly more performance, for those days when you want to push your longboarding a bit.
We pulled the nose to give it more control on the tip and the ability to negotiate those critical sections. To compliment this we added a touch more nose rocker to improve on the board’s ability to navigate punchier waves. We also added a very slight step deck in the nose to cut down on the swing weight (for better turning). And a little more tail rocker than the traditional Lumberjack.
All of this equates to a noserider that locks in the pocket, and performs exceptionally well in decent surf.
