surfboards types

Fish

Between 1,90 and 2,20 m, for a width between 49 and 52 cm.

 

Shortboard

Shortboards are easier to handle, 

There are between  1,50 and 2,10 m long, for 44 to 49 cm width. They are more slender than longboards and offers more maneuverability but they are not recommended for beginners as they are less stable. It’s the most popular type of surfboard.

Hybrid

The Hybrid surf board mixes the design features from two similar board types. For example the shortboard and the fish or the shortboard and the longboard. The result is a board that for example has more volume, suited for heavier surfers, but still has the ‘feel’ of a shortboard.

Mini-Malibu

Between 1,70 and 1,90 m, for a width between 49 and 52 cm. It’s the easiest board to surf with.

Longboard (or Malibu)

Over 2,75 m long (> 9 pieds), width up to 56 cm.

It’s an heavy and hard to manoeuvre surf board. However, paddling is made easier but it’s quite impossible to make a duck with it to go under the wave.

Gun

Between 2.10 and 3m long so you can take off earlier. Not recommended for beginners, they are specific for big waves surfing.
