We’ve likened the surfboard/surfer connectedness to shopping for shoes, jeans swimsuits in addition to fifty-fifty romantic relationships. You'll desire a dissimilar board for dissimilar surf spots, moods, your surfing skill, trend in addition to that intangible feeling of what y'all merely similar in addition to don't similar exactly because.The honest truth that shapers volition tell y'all is: it’s non solely nearly the surfboard, it’s nearly a winning combination of the surfboard, the surfer, in addition to the wave.

There is no 1 size fits all. That existence said, some of the Bing longboards come upwards pretty darn unopen if you’re later a trimmy glide in addition to nimble turns. What’s the magic longboard model that 3 of the Seeababes swear by?

We asked Mele Saili, Lola Mignot in addition to Taylor Nelson (who are all Bing Surfboards squad riders, too) which arrows they line from the quiver for the smoothest noserides, in addition to why.

Go-To Longboard: 9'2 Bing Elevator for faster beach breaks or something amongst a steeper pocket.

I similar to hold out a polish operator, in addition to this board seems to deed good amongst how my trunk moves.

Mele Saili: Riding something amongst flatter rocker in addition to a wider olfactory organ aid amongst getting into waves on smaller slower days in addition to allow for adept back upwards for walking the board when the waves are soft. But when the waves are to a greater extent than technical in addition to steep I'll purpose a board amongst a trivial to a greater extent than rocker in addition to a narrow olfactory organ to jibe into the bag of the moving ridge better.

Let’s speak fins. Do y'all receive got a go-to fin? What is it in addition to why?

Mele Saili: I unremarkably become amongst a 9.5" Larry Allison Flex Fin. They receive got a overnice base of operations that taper out to a slender tip for adept drive in addition to responsive turning. Once inwards a land I'll set a pin fin inwards there. It's a trivial to a greater extent than potent when turning but it offers to a greater extent than agree in addition to anchors the board downwardly for longer olfactory organ rides.

Do y'all receive got some other longboard that y'all become to when y'all desire to switch it up? 

Mele Saili: The Bing Cali Square Tail when I desire something amongst to a greater extent than glide in addition to trim.

Growing upwards at First Point Malibu, in addition to calling it my home/favorite moving ridge inwards the world, y'all demand a lot of speed to brand sections, in addition to it’s a lot of drive downwardly the line. It noserides similar no other log for me because of the stride deck in addition to slight boot inwards the tail! Because I am on the petite side, this board’s modest olfactory organ in addition to sparse width makes it a manageable for me to log in addition to teach into the pocket.

How practise y'all create upwards one's heed which longboard to ride on which day?

Taylor Nelson: Most of the waves I surf I know earlier going out or checking which board is going to locomote amend for the spot. I know my pockety waves betwixt my mushy waves pretty well! But if I am surfing a novel location I e'er effort to lookout adult man it for a land earlier going out.

Let’s speak fins. Do y'all receive got a go-to fin? What is it in addition to why?
