Longboard surfing is usually a more relaxed and slower style of surfing. Instead of the fast speed and dynamic turns, longboard surfing involves
cross-stepping and nose riding. The extra length of the surfboard allows for more balance when standing.

The 2023 World Surf League Surf City El Salvador Longboard Classic will be the perfect event to enjoy this surfing style.
