Welcome to Kassia Meador's Definitive Guide to Longboarding

No matter where you are in your surfing, it can be a little intimidating to get to the next level. Whether you’re a beginner trying to figure out where to start, or you’ve been logging for a while and you’re keen to properly hang ten, or you’re obsessed with improving your technique, I teamed up with The Inertia to create a course that will help you. It’s all good vibes, and by the end of this course, you’ll feel a lot more confident, safe, and knowledgeable. Which means you’re going to catch way more waves and have a lot more fun.

My guide to longboarding is divided into two courses depending on your level of experience. In the intro course, you’ll learn things like the importance of fin placement, etiquette and safety, how to properly wax your board, and the right way to turtle roll and get into the lineup.

In the intermediate and advanced course, you’ll learn my secret to hanging ten, my philosophy on nose-riding, the mechanics of cross-stepping, and tricky tips on hanging heels and style.

Most of all, I just want to help you have fun and be safe. I talk to a lot of surfers, both women and men, who understandably have a lot of questions when it comes to logging, and I want to share all the knowledge that I’ve gained over twenty-plus years in the water to make it easier for you and to make the lineup an even better, friendlier place. I can’t wait for you to join me.

My name is Kassia Meador, and this is my definitive guide to longboarding.
