Longboard SUP Surfing Series #8 / Noseriding a Longboard SUP

Extra video available with

In our final instalment of the Longboard SUP Surfing How To Series, we take a closer look at how to nose ride a Longboard SUP.

Longboard SUPs were made to utilise the full length of the board, so we learn the correct technique and tips to performing a controlled nose ride. We break down the three most common types of noseriding, the cheater 5, hang 5 and the hang 10.

For the SUPboarder Pro subscribers, start to learn what equipment you need and the board design elements that will improve your noseriding ability.

Complete beginner, use a 10×34 whopper, with 2+1 (4.7 and 6.75), and find it fun, even if only for a cheat five or on my way to it on the picture!
Thanks for the video, very interesting
It gives me motivation to try and persevere

Thanks for the series. it’s been really interesting.
My big board is a 2015 Starboard Blend with a 9″ center fin and has a very longboard feel to it. I just need to remember to wax the front as I nearly slipped off last time I tried to nose ride it. ha.

I use Rspro hexatraction which works great on the front and doesn’t need wax!

Good to know, I have used it a few times but most of my boards still have wax.

I can use wax on top of it, but for walking forward it seems to be perfect. I have yet to slip. And its always there on my board beckoning me to the front!

I am an intermediate riding the Sunova Steeze which is a 8’10” fun board, (style with ease) they say is “A traditional outline that maintains width and volume, increasing stability without sacrificing performance. This is your classic compact performance all-rounder. Your go-anywhere, all-round quiver killer.” This video was key both in identifying that pocket in the top of the wave, something I had an inkling of, but this description really really helped. Also it makes me understand that my beach break, which rarely walls up in the way that is helpful to nose riding, is not perfect. And that I need… Read more »

yeah, the cheetah 5 is the closest, and a term I didn’t know before your video!

Great tips ! I’m using a 10′ Starboard Nut with a 10″ hatchet, but it’s quite difficult to find the right waves ! What are your advice for the bottom turn ? Do you think I can turn directly to place the board on a parallel position to the wave without gaining too much speed ?

Thank you Beau I guess my gestures are not enough subtle for the moment : I often brake or stall too much so the wave passes by. I managed to make some short nose rides so I guess I’m not too far from it ! Learning is so much fun thanks for this video ! Maybe some tips about foot placement on the board ? Is it useful to put the feet close to the wave side ?

Hi Beau, what’s the definition of a long board SUP in this context? I used to have a 10′ x 30″ all rounder which I had to sell to go for the 9’2″ x 32″ x 5″ more surf designed board. Don’t have the specs of either of them and they’re not a big brand. )Also have a 14′ race board but won’t be getting to the front of that!! 🙂 ) Thinking I’d slip off the front too if I tried to get up there without a treatment of some sort! Love the instructional videos too – thanks so… Read more »
