Noseriding: Which Surfboard Is Right For You?

Noseriding: Which Surfboard Is Right For You?

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.

3. Logistic
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.
