Peter Pan got his nickname at a surf contest in the 60s when the announcer couldn't pronounce his full last name, Panagiotis. Today "Pan" is a surf icon on the east coast USA with more than 40 years of round the clock surfing under his belt and induction into the Surfing Hall of Fame in 1996. A versatile waterman, Peter has

directed numerous surfing competitions and holds countless shortboarding, longboarding, bodyboarding and kneeboarding titles. A colourful character and one of surfing's greats, he's been an integral part of the BIC Sport Research and Design Team for more than a decade.

Here he explains the various types of surfboards and helps you choose the right board for you.

 

 

 

Shortboards

This type of surfboard is highly maneuverable, and most suited for advanced surfers. They are traditionally thinner and narrower that other styles of surfboards. Shortboards require more precise positioning to catch waves since they are slower to paddle than other styles of boards. In the BIC Sport line, our ACS 6'7" Short board and the ACS 5'10" Fish both fit into this category. Our shapes differ from traditional shortboards because they are a bit thicker and wider, making them ideal for aggressive beginners and intermediate surfers who want to start out on a shortboard. Shortboards come in a huge variety of shapes, sizes, tails, and fin configurations. The rounder, wider tails with up to five fins will bounce and fly through flatter waves, while shortboards with narrower tails and fewer fins will draw longer lines and give the rider the ability to make harder turns and cutbacks in steeper waves.

 

Mini-Malibus

This category combines the maneuverability of the short board with the improved floatation and stability of the longer boards. While this style of surfboard is not as responsive as a short board, it‘s shape is best suited for intermediate and agressive beginners who are not quite ready for a traditional shortboard. A good example is our 7'3" Mini Malibu and our 7'6" E-Comp Performer model.

 

Malibus

Similar to the ‘Mini-Mal', but larger. This type of surfboard is extremely popular, combining the volume and width of a long board, with the shape and design of a shorter surfboard. These boards are designed to work in the biggest range of conditions, and able to float a wider range of surfers. Our top selling surfboards are the ACS 7'9" Natural Surf and the 8'4" Magnum, which are both considered Malibus

 

Longboards

There are basically three styles of long boards. These include the Retro-Old School long board with heavy glass and single fins, which cater to a small category of nostalgia riders. These surfboards have limited mobility and versatility. On the other end of the spectrum is the High-Performance long board with small tri-fins and lots of rocker for fast turning and quick response for larger, steeper wave conditions.

The most popular long board models are those in the middle range, which are wider with less rocker that the high performance model, but lighter than the Old-School shape. This type of long board is designed to work in more varied conditions and can come with single or tri-fin set-ups. The most popular tail configurations are the round tail and the square tail.

Bic Sport offers three models in this range. The 9'4" Super Magnum is very wide and with lots of floatation for easy wave catching and standing for even the largest of surfers. The 9'4" E-Comp Nat Young offers a performance model for larger riders, while the 9'0" E-Comp Long board offers the same great riding and performance as the Nat Young, but for lighter riders. The ACS Super Magnum comes with a single large fin, while the 9'0" and 9'4" E-Comp Longboards comes with a tri-fin set up.
