A dedicated subject does not yet seem to exists for longboarding SUP Videos, so let's have one:



Note: The facebook group "The Longboard Sup Revolution" is a mandatory place for longSUP lovers: www.facebook.com/groups/561553860671471/

Thanks Colas

I enjoyed the video and music.......stylish skilled surfing! Interesting that these longboard sups from Gong are about 9 feet in length. Can you give the complete dimensions? Most of the long board offerings from other companies are in the 9.5-10.5 foot range. For lighter riders that could be a bit of a handful.

Cheers

Hi, you have the full dims on the Gong shop site (one foot off etc...) gongsupshop.com/epages/box1707.sf/fr_FR/?ObjectPath=/Shops/box1707/Categories/SUP/%22SUP%20Noseriders%22

Currently are listed only the zero, but not teh Soul, Moblog, Pampa, Neverstick... But by googling their name + gongsup you will find their web pages with all their specs.

Note that there are not a lot of models currently, as the noseriders new shapes are being designed. Discussions of all the shapes happen in www.gongsup.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=67

In Europe boards 10'+ do not sell well. Above 9'4", boards do not fit inside vans or cars, so Gong design now mostly longSUPs under 9'4". I had a nice 9'6" but I had to sell it when changing vans, I could only fit a 9'4".

Wish we could get these Gong longboards in Oz.

Cheapest freight cost i've found from France to Melb is $1200 so far...

Frankly, you have so many talented shapers in OZ that you should be able to find quality local boards...

nice one colas , so they really are short boards ,but longboard shape ,they have nice flow on the small wave ...

interesting .what volume ...130 -140 ?

yes to longboard column .but then again why not just a SUP surfing one,

general, foiling, gear talk review , and sup surfing . and maybe a 14's section ,

So is it a competition to have the most sections possible?? Dilutes the conversation IMHO. Makes the forums look dead.

Fair point.

However - Custom with PVC wrap is rare - and if it is available - expensive. Most local shaped custom boards use a basic glass job.

Gong sups are half the price of the bigger brands and are more progressive than the cheaper main stream brands here.

There are usually many sizes and width, between 100 and 140 liters, and 25" to 32".

In the Video, Patrice at 86kg is on the Zero 9'0" x 29.5" x 115 liters.
