WHAT SIZE SURFBOARD FOR A BEGINNER?

Who are you:

  • An absolute beginner
  • I had a lesson or two but want my own board

What are some of your biggest surfing challenges:

  • Catching a wave and getting to your feet!
  • Knowing what board will help you learn the fastest

What’s going to solve them:

  • You need maximum floatation and stability
  • Ensuring your board is not too small. Going too small too early will actually slow your progress
  • Understanding that it takes quite a longtime and dedication to learn to surf

The best surfboard for you:

  • Our Minimal and Longboard surfboards – these float the best and are the most stable. You will paddle and get to your feet the easiest. It takes a long time to master the basics so this will last you.
  • But you really want a “normal” shortboard?  Our fish surfboards have good volume for this but you really need to be light, small, young or very water fit and coordinated.
  • What about a softboard?  These are only good for small kids or for the first few goes.  

What size board should I ride then?
