The Longboardarian Podcast objective and mission is to have conversations with the personalities of our longboarding/surf culture. My guests will be the surfers, surfboard shapers, organizers and historians who through their experiences and knowledge have interesting and important opinions and facts about our sport/lifestyle and culture. I feel like many of these conversations will have important historical value as time goes. It's part of surf history!
