Shortboards are your everyday performance boards. These are perfect for a larger, stronger wave as they'll be the most manouverable and the fastest of the bunch. While you could learn on a shortboard, you'll probably want a bit of experience before tackling the sea on this board as while they are much more manuverable, they will be narrower, shorter and have less volume so getting up and staying up will be harder. Shortboards come in various shapes with different specifications. They will be offered in numerous materials including PU, Foam and even Carbon Fiber (check out Dark Arts). If you're starting or adding to your collection of boards, a shortboard is a must have in your quiver.
