About being small and carrying a longboard

Wednesday, April 16, 2014
If you don't have already noticed that, I love big boards. There's a sort of grace in women longboarding and a deep connection between you and the flowing water while you're sliding a wave.
Anyway, I've always had a tiny -yet annoying- little issue with longboards. I'm 1,55 m (around 5,09 ft) tall - which means troubles in carrying my board. Hip and head carrying become tiring and quite painful after a while.

I've always figured myself as a sort of modern times Gidget - but hey, she had a bunch of men all lined up ready to carry her board!
But I'm not a quitter and I found my life-changer (yet quite cheap) solution under the name of RAIL GRABBER.

The Rail Grabber was created not long ago by the surfer legend Linda Benson, who apparently has my very same problem. And it really works!

So, all the petite girls out there, what the heck are you waiting for?


And don't forget to hide it in the bushes before getting in the water!

  2. Longboarding: a sport in which demands finesse, fortitude and also determination. A hobby unparalleled; in which power and also adrenaline streams hand-in-hand having serenity. In which speedy reflexes keep significance tantamount to very careful movements, a new unusual distinction.

    1. Hi Jeffery! Thanks for commenting :)
      Do you have this very same model of surfboard? I personally loved it! I don't have it anymore because it was a little too big for me to manage when the waves were bigger, but I don't regret buying it :)

  4. I was always thinking of getting myself in to some sort of an exotic sport and as I loved rowing the only next logical step for me would be longboarding. It seems like a great sport to let yourself go and not think about the troubles you are having. And It is even more extreme and you feel potent by combatting the nature.

    1. Hi Henry! I totally agree with you. Longboarding has the power of leading you to your "zen zone" where you don't think about everyday issues. In addition to that, that empowering feeling of being in harmony with nature is priceless...

      Thanks for sharing this :)

  5. Longboarding seems like hip and cool and especially if you have nice skills like I do. I guess I am not that bad and as this is not a competition then all I need is my board to start the fun and the waves that will make that fun even greater. I hope that you agree with me.

  7. Longboarding is a sports activity that's developing with attractiveness. This aboard accustomed to longboard is a stylistic and sensible melding with the surf and skate aboard. Formulated for the Western world Coastline in excess of 50 years ago, longboarding has been around for quite a while.
