The eternal struggle between an easy take off long surfboard and a short manouverable short board could be accomodated with a hybrid longboard with explosively jettisoned tail section of 2-3 feet in length. Nasa technology could be borrowed that separates stages of rockets and icbms. Once sufer is standing
up he remotely triggers separation. Note: An additional set of fins will bee required on existing section of board, possibly spring loaded to extend on command.

||I do NOT want to by lying down on this thing when the explosive bolts at the tail are accidentally activated.
||Exploding Tail Surfboards are to Great White Sharks, as Tail Dropping Skinks are to Small Birds.
||why explosive, couldn't it just have a quick release mechanism ? (with a gps/turbine kit to automatically get it to head for shore once you've jettisoned it).
