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.
This design allows high buoyancy due to the foam core and thickness of the board; it also paddles quickly as the shape allows you to get onto the wave with ease. The perfect training board.
Designed with a wider square tail to ensure a new rider feels stable and the tri fin system allows the board to manoeuvre with ease.
We believe that these are perfect for a beginner to learn to surf as they are built with all the features of a surfboard but with softer material so that a new surfer can develop wave skills with ease.
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) Two timber stringers are 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.
