Transition from shortboard to longboard

So after 36 years of riding a shortboard on the eastcoast I finally bought a used longboard. The thing is I know bascially nothing about longboards. 


Can anybody give me some pointers. I've riden longboards a couple times...and by a couple I mean literally riden a couple waves, and I was trying to ride it like my shortboard...


I'm sure I'll pick it up fast but I'm also wondering about fin selection also...



Thanks in advance!!!
