Shortboards

Also known as Thruster (often with 3 fins), the shortboard is a very popular surfboard since its origin dates back to the 60s. Handy and nervous, it is the surfboard commonly used by fans of tricks and other manoeuvres on powerful and fast waves. The shortboard as its name suggests is quite short, generally from 173cm / 5'8'' to 208cm / 6'10''. Be careful therefore, the choice of your shortboard should not be made lightly, especially if you are a beginner. Indeed, a surf-shorboard due to its reduced dimensions is less stable and floats less, which will already require a good level of surfing or at least a very good balance as well as the physique that goes with it to be able to row and launch a take-off. Nowadays, shortboards are also widely used indoors on permanent waves as well as on river waves because their dimensions are perfectly adapted to this type of wave.
