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 low impact surfboard is for the beginner who has not yet mastered their surfing skills and is looking to catch waves early while improving their maneuvering skills.
The rocker profile for this longer board is great, having the necessary nose steepness to maintain a good speed in the water. The rails or edges of the board are very similar to an experienced surfer’s board, giving it maximum floatation.
Though the board may seem long for a new surfer, it is actually ideal for training. The high buoyancy of the foam core makes it easier to paddle and helps you get onto the wave. A wider square-tail design adds stability, and its maneuverability is increased with its tri fin system.
For learning the basics of surfing, we believe this board is the best choice for a beginner because of its softer foam composition and length. What beginner surfers look for is a real world experience in a safe learning environment. This board provides both.
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.
