Where to buy foam or soft surfboards?
The choices are really good these days as not only can you buy a traditional mini mal such as the Cortez or Bic Surfboards which have a very hard wearing construction. These beginner surfboards are basically designed so that even if you ride them into the sand by accident you would not break them like a fibre glass board would. Beginner boards are also light and have good volume and width for catching lots of waves. The really good thing about mini mals is that you can progress on them and end up performing progressive turns.
The soft surfboard range is even safer than mini mals as due to there soft decks even if you fall off and it hits you the soft design ensure you do not harm yourself. They even come with plastic soft fin systems even if you run someone over you are not going to cause them anywhere near the damage a traditional system would. This is why they are so good for the family that wants a board you can all use down the beach. Certainly if your not looking to surf in the winter months this would be the board to go for. Soft boards are also used in surf schools and surf clubs so you will be using the chosen equipment to have loads of fun in the water.
