Loomer: an extremely long and skinny french-fry. Like one that is over 7 inches.
From the urban dictionary
I demand an explanation!!

Also, the hardest 11 I've ever been on. Jun 28, 2009

In surfer slang the "loomer" is the the last and sometimes largest wave in a set. Ergo, paddling through the first few lesser waves to get to the loomer is scratching. Jun 7, 2010
