You'll ride the Joel Tudor Longboard around downtown and your surfboard will ride the Tudor to airport check-in.
Pro surfer Joel Tudor wanted a mellower shape and setup for his second collaboration with Sector 9—the Joel Tudor Longboard has a small amount of camber and concave along with a stub tail for a firm, responsive ride. Tudor, who modeled this board after an old Hobie of his, straps his surfboard bag onto it for traveling since the tail is the same height as the center camber.

Best Cruising board around!
I am 6'0" and 190lbs and this board flys down hill!
I love the way the wheels grip the pavement on the turns and it allowd you to practe your footwork in order to get better at longbaording in the water!
getting my first long board, I am 6'1"...
getting my first long board, I am 6'1" 200lbs. cruising on walksways, strand in manhattan beach. Just getting back into it. Size board? plys? wheel set up and type of wheels, width? shape?
what's up - ok, so for starters, because you want a cruising board and you're pretty decent sized, i would say anything betwee 35' and 40' inches is solid - anything below and it would be a commuter and anything above and it would be a downhill bomber...the width and shape is really all up to you and your preferences...personally i love drop through trucks (they don't have any boards on dogfunk with it, but the Rayne Demonseed is an example)...plys won't matter too much if you're just getting into it, and if you are wondering, most companies who offer different deck thicknesses usually say what weights are good for what decks...as for wheels, for a cruiser, anything from like 60mm and up are solid...and durometer doesn't really matter because you won't be doing any sliding (you need a higher rating or the wheels get flats in them)...basically, any longer Sector 9 is a solid cruiser, as well as, neversummer
