Should I start on a longboard or a shortboard?

Longboarding and shortboarding represent opposite ends of the surfing spectrum, both athletically and culturally. Longboarders tend to be a more relaxed group, surfing with “flow” on a variety of wave sizes and types. Shortboarding takes a more aggressive approach to wave-riding, and requires a more specific wave type (fast and powerful) to reach full potential.
