WHY SHOULD YOU CHOOSE A SOFT SURFBOARD FOR YOURSELF? The answer is simple. Soft Surfboards are designed to be extremely durable and easy to control They come in both shortboard and longboard options, and are ideal for beginner surfers. BUT, they are also suitable for anyone looking for an affordable and lightweight way to catch some waves.

WE HAVE DONE OUR RESEARCH AND RELIED ON OUR EXPERIENCE TO RECOMMEND A NUMBER OF SOFT SURFBOARDS TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS. You will find our recommendations below, contained within this article.

In the early days of surfing, the islanders that inhabited ancient Hawaii — used long wooden platforms to ride the waves, searching for spiritual, recreational, and social fulfillment. They were hand-crafted either from Ula or Koa trees, and were either long or short depending on ones social status.

Today, surfboards come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from long to short, thick to thin, made out of rubber to those made out from high-tech fiberglass. Each board shape is specifically designed to deliver optimum performance under varying conditions.

One of the most common varieties is the soft surfboard or foam board. The soft surfboard has become the default intro-board for beginners and novices looking to get started. Most rental shops or surf schools will likely offer and teach on soft/foam surfboards.

WHY? Because soft surfboards or foam boards incorporate several specific elements that make them suited to beginner use. Usually made of strong polyurethane material, they’re generally more durable than other surfboards. They withstand all the abuse that an inexperienced surfer is likely to subject their first board to without damage. Many foam boards also have greater buoyancy for easier paddling and more stable ride.

Don’t forget the cost factor! Soft Surfboards are generally many times more affordable than fiberglass or wood boards, making them a great entry-level choice if not ready to make a serious financial commitment to the sport.

Long Soft Surfboard or Short? Good question.

Some boards feature a shape that is very streamlined, making it easier to turn and carve in the water, while others are  egg-shaped, for increased stability. The number of fins can also differ from one board to another, effecting the speed and control while riding.

One of the most important things to consider, though, is BOARD LENGTH.

One of the most important things to consider, though, is board length. Foam boards come in many different sizes. For the  inexperienced beginner, they start with a longer board, as those are both easier to paddle, catch waves, and to maintain balance while standing. Shorter boards are more difficult for the novice to use. They are faster and more agile, making them a good option when you want to take your surfing skills to the next level.

Which length is best for you? This will probably come down to personal preference. Even more experienced riders sometimes prefer the comfort and leisure of a longer board, while others say shorter boards are just more fun. You should also keep where you like to surf in mind, as bigger boards are generally best for smaller, longer-breaking waves, and shorter boards for larger, quick, speedy waves.

Well, there you have it. Do your own research, assess your needs and pick your wave tool wisely. Enjoy.
