Let’s be honest, if you’re just starting out there is no point in selecting a high performance short board designed for someone who has years of experience.
It will just amount to you not having fun and more than likely giving up. As your experience and ability grows so does the choice of surfboards. We have shapes instore for all levels of surfing. Be honest about where you’re doing most of your surfing and your ability. This will help us give you the right advice when choosing a board.
Beginners 0 – 1 years Experience – A Soft board or Mini mal as long as about an arm span above your head. This will be the most stable platform whilst learning how to surf.
Intermediate 1 – 4 years Experience – A higher volumed fish board thats still stable enough whilst allowing you to link a turn or 2 together, start duckdiving and surfing different types of waves as you are progressing.
Intermediate / Advanced 4 – 8 years Experience – Hybrid or All round shortboard or high peformance shorty(at the end of the scale). This board will allow you to really start linking some turns together in a variety of conditions and types of waves.
Advanced 8 – 25 + years experience – Whatever you feel comfortable riding. By now you should know what does and doesnt work for you and the length/volume you like. Dont be afraid to keep up with current shaping trends by trying new shapes to progress your surfing though.
