NOW YOU CAN LEARN TO SURF!

Softboards are constructed of an EPS core, with dual stringers for strength, a XEPE sandwich deck, and include soft molded fins for safety. These boards offer increased floatation and durability. Softboards in our school are available in lengths from 6’0 – 9’0.
Today’s surf wax is a high tech version of the old candles and paraffin that was originally used on surfboards for traction starting in the 1940’s. Today’s wax is formulated to work in specific temperatures. Wax that has been made for colder water is much softer and stickier than wax made for warm water. When you travel from the colder climes to warmer (or vice-versa), you’ll find that the wax that you have on your board will very likely not perform very well on your board.
Leashes help keep you attached to your surfboard. Your leash allows you to fall on a wave, or bail your board when you’re in a difficult position in the impact zone. After you surface, you are then able to recover your board and get back out into the line-up. Without a leash you’re forced to swim and retrieve your board wherever it ends up. Besides that, losing your board can also be dangerous to other swimmers and surfers. The basic formula to grab the right one for you is to make sure that the leash is at least the length of your board. The less experience you have, the longer your leash should be. If you’re riding a 7 foot board and still learning to control it, then make sure your leash is at least a foot longer than your board.
