Softboards for Summer & Beginners



About Soft Surfboards.
You can learn on whatever board you like, however some surfboards are easier to learn on than others. If you want to progress quickly, you might want to learn on a beginner board such as a soft surfboard also known as a foam board.

What is a Soft Surfboard?
Soft surfboards are the best surfboards for beginners and are fun to learn on. Softboards are ideal because the soft foam construction means the boards are really buoyant so it's easier to catch waves. An 8ft softboard is ideal for an adult beginner, while a 6ft board is good for a child who is just starting out.

Why Choose a Softboard?
Apart from being easier to learn to surf on, there are also other reasons to choose a softboard as a beginner surfboard. You are less likely to have accidents from surfboard fins compared to normal surfboard fins as they tend to be softer and rounder. You don't need to wax your softboard as much because the foam itself has quite a good grip. However, it's recommended that you wear a rash-vest or wetsuit when using a softboard as there is more friction compared to a regular surfboard.

Great Customer service

Great product and amazing customer service

Black box 3 by JS

The black box 3 surfs well in average waves and makes the most out of poorer conditions and easy to get good carry through mushy sections. Feels good to paddle and easy to get into waves. Had a surf the other night in some clean small waves and the board was fantastic. Really responsive, and carried good speed and drive out of turns. Loads of fun. Very happy with the board.

Sticky and Stays, Rides and Waves

This is my new go to wax. It is sticky and stays on the board really well. If you want a sticky wax that has true grit grip but does not build up, this is a good choice. Some of the waxes kind of just stay on and build up and are not that sticky. This one stays on for a solid two- three hour session and sticks to you really nice. I can ride, fly, spin, barrel, spiral, quantum shift, quasar, and trapeze all the while staying on the board... me my board my balance and this wax... Sticky Bumps... improve your ride...

Very cool i luv it
