Oldschool is generally a single tail fin, and the head and tail are generally wider, suitable for small and medium waves. more elegant. Newschool generally has three tail fins, the head and tail are relatively narrow and can do relatively more movements. The material of the longboard is generally resin + glass fiber, the buoyancy will be smaller than that of the foam board, but it is more flexible to use, suitable for all ronin and beginners to advance.

3 FUN BOARD

The general length is about 5-8 feet, between the long board and the short board, and there are usually three tail fins.
