WHAT SURFBOARD SIZE FOR STARTING AGAIN?

Who are you:

  • I surfed years ago and want to get back into it
  • I’ve put on weight, a bit unfit – life’s caught up with me
  • I used to surf well and want to relive my youth!

What are some of your biggest surfing challenges:

  • The young guys paddle too fast for me
  • I want something easier to catch waves on
  • I just can’t ride a normal shortboard anymore and need a change

What’s going to solve them:

  • You simply need more float which = more volume which comes from more length, width and/or thickness
  • You need a reality check – stop thinking you need to ride a board as short as possible in the vague hope of busting that one tighter turn somewhere. This ruins the 99% of the rest of your surfing as you struggle to float, paddle and catch waves!

The best surfboard for you:

  • Our fish surfboards – these add volume and maintain the shortboard shape. They have a little more volume in the chest area to aid paddling and some models have both the 3 and 4 fin options to speed up and loosen up the surfboard.
  • Longboards – Be honest with yourself - if you really wanna just cruise and catch lots of waves then there’s nothing like the fun and glide of a longboard. They turn small days into fun days and you may as well join the other old fellas on one - it's for a good reason - it's much easier!
