The serious surfer’s quiver

Traditional big wave surfboards are longer, thicker, and heavier than standard boards (ranging as long as 10-11 feet). These qualities offer stability among the high speeds and turbulent bumps and humps that blow across the massive wave faces of big waves. In addition, the added length and thickness offer surfers extra buoyancy and paddle power to get in and over the ledge of a mass of water that moves with in human power.
