Mid length surfboards are all about easy surfing. The extra length and volume provide plenty of float and paddle power; some are designed to hold trim on the points and some are still really shreddable. Whatever the design, once you experience the joy of extra length you will most likely be addicted. Mid lengths fall into a size range ranging from approximately 6'8 to 8'8. They are the type of board where any skill of surfer can meet in the middle and be happy.
For surfers progressing into smaller boards, they can be a great option for learning to surf more lively and for short boarders, they can provide a cruisy ride for smaller days or early entry into tubes.
