Who are you:

  • I need to buy surfboard as a present for someone
  • They are a beginner or have had a few goes at surfing

What are some of your biggest surfing challenges:

  • Picking the right surfboard for someone as a present

What’s going to solve them:

  • Letting them choose the board – a surfboard gift voucher
  • Picking the best learner board - which is simply one with maximum floatation and stability and not too small.
  • Just use our table below!

The best surfboard for a beginner:

  • Our Minimal and Longboard surfboards – these float the best and are the most stable. The paddle the best and make getting to your feet the easiest. It takes a long time to master the basics so this will last someone a long time.
  • But I think they would want “normal” shortboard?  You simply can't learn on a normal shortboard unless you are a small kid. Our fish surfboards are a compromise but they still need to be light, small, young or very water fit and coordinated.
  • What about a softboard? These are only good for kids or for the first few goes. Not a long-lasting present unless you are on a tight budget.

What size board should I choose then?

  • You just need to know their approximate weight and use the tables below or the size charts
