Surfing in the 1950's was only ever done on long surfboards. And through this time Californian's started to push the envelope by noseriding their boards. This traditional form of surfing waned after shortboards became more popular from the 70's and 80's. Recently, longboard surfing has had a renaissance and the sport has its own World Championship. Surfers are more concerned about their style and the culture that surrounds the sport. These images were captured at Noosa Heads and Byron Bay in Australia, which are both meccas for Longboarders.
