For first timers and even seasoned surfers’ foam is everyone's friend. Just ask around, almost every surfer will have a soft top in their quiver of boards.
Durability, light weight, stability and an easy paddle are just a few things you’re guaranteed. More volume means better buoyancy and with an array of shapes and sizes on the market you’re not only bound to find the right one for you but be on your feet in no time. Think of a foam surfboard as confidence building at its finest.
