Pictorial Perspective - (surf)trailer #2 from Taylor Larison on Vimeo.
Surfing is not based on which particular board you use, but rather the experience that you gain from it. There is no correct manner in which a surfboard should be ridden; it is just the feeling gained which holds the most importance. Since the advent of shortboard surfing, longboarding has become the ugly step-child of the surfing world. This film will attempt to crush the current stereotypes by investigating an array of longboard equipment, ranging from light-weight, high performance tri-fins to more traditional, single fin noseriders. Ultimately, the story will reveal how longboarding is beginning to gain acceptance and positive influence in the surfing community and beyond.
