Funboard Surfboards are a great go to for anyone on those less than ideal days, or simply for the beginner looking to catch their first wave. A funboard can come in a range styles from Soft Top Surfboards to Mini Mal Surfboards or even classic Single Fin Surfboards with a wider template and forgiving rails, making for an easy board to paddle and forgiving to surf.
Funboards make for great Beginner Surfboards as they are usually very user friendly. They offer a lot of flotation and stability and are usually very durable so they will last you a long time...well past your beginner stage of surfing.
