Soft Top Surfboards
are used by everyone nowadays and found absolutely everywhere. They are very user friendly, making for the perfect Beginner Surfboard
. They are easy to paddle, very stable and safe when it is crowded. In recent years, a lot of alternative surfers are using them as finless surfboards
or ridden as their Fun Board
purely for the sake of having as much fun as possible in less than ideal waves, and not taking surfing too seriously.
They come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from short 4ft fun boards up to 10ft longboards...some even bigger. Many are used by Surf Schools
since soft tops are great to learn on. But don't count these boards out on fun for the intermediate to expert surfers. Catch Surf
makes some functional fun boards from the Beater Board model, built to beat the summertime onshore blues, to the Odysea Logs for longboarding your favorite point to taking off on bombs at Pipe with Jamie O'Brien.
