The classic ‘foamie’ surfboard has evolved from being a low-tech entry-level ride. If you want to enter the surfing world, the soft top board offers a low-impact, ideal starting point; offering added safety and usability over hardboard equivalents. Used by most all surfing schools, the appeal of a soft top board is due to the soft covering over the entire deck and rails. Combined with a smooth, soft slick-skin hull, it offers the highest levels of safety when falling and retrieving in the surf, where impact between board and rider is commonplace during the learning phase. The moulded board includes bamboo stringer within the foam for stiffness, slick-soft bottom and non-slip foam decking. No wax is needed.
Soft to the touch, the Bahia offers high levels of non-slip performance from nose to tail without wax. The soft foam finish gives the rider a pleasant tactile feel on the hands and feet, offering a reassuring level of cushioning. When retrieving and remounting, the soft non-slip decking makes the board easy to hold onto in foaming waves. The rails are sufficiently hard-edged to ensure you can trim along the wave in control, and the tri-fin, moulded plastic fins, provide excellent bite in beach break waves and offer improved levels of safety in the case of impact. For schools, hire operations, or family fun, the Bahia is the ideal stick to grab and go for learning and enjoying the pleasures of surfing. Benefits in being less likely to ‘ding’ over that of a hardboard.
