  • Hi t History of L f Longboard S fi b d Surfing Th sport of Longboarding as we k The t fL b di today is in fact know it t d i i f t exactly h tl how th sport of surfing b the t f fi began as ffar back as the late 1800’s. The sport became popular in the late 50’s and as the sport evolved the surfboards became shorter and more maneuverable. By the mid 70’s surfing had reached its maturity as an international sport and along with it came the branding of surf gear and major events such as the Hyundai Pro Longboard tour and many more. y g y The resurgence of the Longboard, in 1987, brought about more refined traditional 9ft Longboard. Due to recent advances in technology designers enabled extreme maneuvers traditional to the Shortboard to be integrated into the laid back Longboard style. The exciting collaboration of surfing styles has definitely defined the Modern Era of Longboarding as we know it. Today the sport of surfing is an extremely commercial industry. Surfing now speaks to nearly all segments of the population who relate to the sport through the strong fashion influence. Longboarding is truly recognized as a full fledged international sport with its own World Championships, Sponsors and commercial appeal.
