Shortboards: Super Light + Super Strong + Superb Flex = Perfection.
Shortboards are designed with a priority on turning and maneuverability. This makes a short board really quick and snappy allowing you to perform more drastic turns and cutbacks, and yes even some aerials.
If you're new to surfing this isn't the board you should start on, the maneuverability is a trade off for stability. Give yourself a couple of years before you jump on one of these bad boys.
