Longboarding is an art form. A style of surfing that lends itself to both beginners and lifelong surfers alike. While it’s fairly simple to ride a longboard, to ride one well requires years of practice, impeccable technique and a innate feeling that only comes from within. Benoit Carpentier is one paddler who has clearly checked all of these boxes. In this latest edit, the French paddler puts on an impressive display of soul surfing on some very fun looking waves in Hossegor’s La Nord Beach in France.
