Product Details

The Torq Longboard 8ft 6 surfboard in the the classic White with Logo colour for this Summer surf season.

The 8ft 6 Longboard would make the perfect first 'proper' surfboard after mastering the basics on a foamy or a moulded board in the surf-school. Far from being purely a learners board, the Torq Longboard is the ideal craft to fine tune your surfing and a good option for the surfer who wants a bit more volume than the Funboard but is not keen on a full size longboard. This tried and tested longboard shape has been fine tuned over the years by board shapers who surf, so competent surfers can still have a blast in smaller weaker conditions. The full nose allows the board to plane and catch waves early and the soft, forgiving rails up front and sharp at the back are forgiving but with enough bite to hold in steeper waves.

Torq Surfboards are constructed using the most up-to-date Epoxy Technology, using the latest EPS Epoxy Materials. The lightweight EPS Core is combined with Biaxial fibreglass cloth, Epoxy resin and Torq's unique Shield Skin.

This unique combination of advanced materials and high-tech construction produces a board that performs at the very highest level, offering lightweight shapes with a responsive flex (missing on some cheaper Epoxy boards) but also makes for a really durable and strong surfboard. Your new Torq surfboard will keep you stoked from your first wave to your last. Enjoy!

Boardshop runs a very efficient ’trade-in’ program, a painless way for you to offset your old or unwanted surfboard against a brand new stick.

9ft Torq longboard
I have surfed longboards for 20 years and my old custum made board was showing some wear and tear and needed replacing. I chose a Torq 9ft because all the dimensions matched what I needed, plus I wanted an epoxy made board for the lightness epoxy gives. This is the best board I have ridden. It catches waves easy, turns and nose rides so well. I use a single fin set up and I replaced the cheaper single fin supplied with a better larger fin which gives me a bit more stability in the tail. Didn't mind the added expense as the Torq 9ft is so relatively cheap anyway.
Nice board, good price
A really nice board at a good price. The 8.6” is perfect for my size - I’m 167cm.
Good board and a great service
As a relative beginner surfer I wanted a board to progress on from the foamies at the surf school. Some research and an email to Boardshop got a quick reply from Ian, who was able to confirm my thoughts and recommend the 8’6” Torq Longboard. I went ahead and ordered the board and, as promised, it was delivered the next day. The board was very well packaged. I have only had the opportunity to surf it once at Saunton Sands in 1-2ft surf, but am very happy with the way it behaves. It is much lighter and more responsive than a foamie, catches waves easily and allows me to get standing on most occasions. I did use the wax initially, but found it too soft and have since cleaned and rewaxed the board with a proper base wax and top coat. Looking forward to surfing again soon.
New 8" Torq Longboard
Very pleased with my new board, It was better than I expected it to be.
The guys at Boardshop were really helpful, easy going and fair when valueing a trade in of my old mini mal.
....this board made me much better than I was before – I can’t wait to jump on it again.
I exchanged a number of e-mails with the team at the Boardshop to help me to identify the best board for me to buy - the basis of which was ; – I’m 105kg , love surfing but am new to it, and sometimes struggle to catch the waves that those around me are riding with apparent ease. Ian suggested the Torq 9ft longboard - which made sense to me – I brought the board, headed off to Devon and paddled out through the surf …. The first wave came along - I paddled with my fingers crossed – and got straight up and on it – and enjoyed the best wave in my fairly limited surfing career. The next 7 days on the Torq were brilliant – pretty much up and on every wave – nicely balanced and confident to manoeuvre.
I’m not the world greatest surfer – but this board made me much better than I was before – I can’t wait to jump on it again....Great service as usual from the Boardshop
Great board, great value
I first tried this board on a small day in morroco. A surf shop just got a load of new ones in so I hired one for the day. Usually I ride a short board but after trying this for one day knew I had to buy one when I returned home to Cornwall.
It's a fantastic board, easy paddler, super stable to pop up and walk around on and not too much of a slug to turn.
And above all else it's amazing value. Not sure how well they hold there value but I'll be keeping this one for the small summer days so it's not a consideration for me. Although I would say the constructions pretty advanced so it may hold well similar to a FireWire or something of that level.
It's a real confidence booster for a beginner/ intermediate and also a real fun summer board for those days the short board is as much use as a sunroof on a submarine.
On the down side the fins are a bit cheap but how can you complain about that when they're included in the price?
The bag is really good quality, the leash hasn't snapped yet! I didn't use the wax as I'm quite specific about what I use so can't comment on that.
So if your looking for a decent longboard at a decent price you really can't go wrong with this. Strong, durable, light, stable, good value.
