ADVANTAGES OF SOFTBOARDS
The main advantage of a soft surfboard or softboard is that a foamie does not you hurt or injure you or other surfers. When you fall of a wave or get hit by a soft surfboard, because it is a softboard it may bruise you but it wont generally cut you or another person in the surf. Depending on the style of the board minimal, longboard or shortboard will determine its surfing characteristics. Perferct for learning to surf, beginners or surfing in crowded areas of the beach.
DISADVANTAGES OF FISH SOFTBOARDS
Soft surfboards have rubber fins which are very flexible so they are difficult to turn compared to a normal surfboard. Hence they are really only for learning to stand and go in a straight line. They tend to be slower and heavier both in the surf and on the land. You should always wear a rashie or rash vest when surfing on a soft surfboard as they tend to give you a rash more easily as they have more friction on the surface of the board. If you want to have a surfboard you can progress on more quickly and one that will be a longer lasting and better investment you should look at buying a mini-mal surfboard.
