We have created the best shaped softboards for surf schools and beginners who want to get the most out of a wave. These boards have a great balance of shape, rocker and buoyancy for beginner surfers to gain confidence on a wave.
If you are shopping for a new surfboard, this is a low impact board especially designed for you. Shaped like an experienced surfer’s board around the edges, its rocker profile will help you learn faster while having the same feel as a surfboard.
It has a soft foam core that gives you the edge when trying to get onto a new wave or simply wanting to paddle faster. It also has high buoyancy and a wider squaretail that makes those new waves easier to handle because the board is more stable. Add in the Tri Fin system and you have a board that is both fun to use and maneuverable. For your money, this is the beginner’s choice because it combines safety with an experienced surfer’s feel. Overall, its construction will help make learning to surf much easier.
SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
The core and components that make up a softboard are vital to the strength and durability of a board. Although you can’t see the inside of a board you should realise the importance on performance and quality.
EPS Core –There are 2 important elements to a CMP board and why these are sold to surf schools as a high quality commercial board 1) A waterproof 22kg EPS Foam Core Blank makes up the centre of the board. This is light weight and top quality foam. 2) A 20cm wide Fibreglass stringer is reinforced by two layers of 6oz fibre-glass sheeting over the standing area of the board making it ultra-tough and adding flex to the board.
Deck – A 4mm IXPE foam deck surface offers a light weight and soft deck to the board for traction and durability.
High Density Slick – The bottom of the board is a 4mm HDPE (High Density Polyethylene). Being a commercial board it is important to have a thick slick which is strong and durable.
Vacuum Sealed Construction – The process of combining the layers whilst under pressure in a sealed bag is called vacuum sealed. The layers bond together under the pressure. This method provides the highest softboard quality, reinforcing the board strength and offering a waterproof bond. Never ever purchase a heat laminated softboard as these are low quality boards and will more than likely delaminate.
Rolled PE Rails – Our PE Soft Black bumper rails offer a softer shaped rail which are tapered and offer a more forgiving ride. This soft bumper rail is vital to the quality of a softboard and enhances the strength and impact of a board.
Nose Rocker- Our design is built to get the most out of every ride. With a front nose kicker and loads of rocker this offers a longer ride.
Fin System – All our softboards come complete with a soft tri fin system which has a rubber grommet which seals the fin tightly to the board stopping the water entering the board.
