Foamie’s are fantastic boards, the perfect boards for learning the foundations of surfing!
Foam boards are very buoyant, with lots of volume and a soft construction. All of this lends them to be much more forgiving than other surfboards. Meaning an increased wave count so more time surfing.
As with any sport, when you begin surfing you want the surfboard to be as forgiving as possible to allow lots of progression. A foam board is the most stable type of surfboard, making them easier to learn to catch waves and stand-up on. Alongside surf conditions, the size of the surfboard you start surfing on should be relevant to your own height, weight and fitness.
