It is a surface water sport. There are longboarding and shortboarding. For the longboarding, user stand on top of it, but for shortboarding you lay on top of it. Surfing is the sport most interesting to me. I from a island country, people like this sport. At first I use shortboarding, because it is easy to learn. Then I learned how to use longboarding , which is a little bit difficult but once you got it, you will love it.
