Shakka Foam Surfboards
The Shakka Foam Surfboards is a great value and full featured Beginners board. It’s a softboard which means most of the board is covered in soft foam, unlike a normal surfboard that has a hard fibreglass construction. The foam is more comfortable when you laying on the board paddling. When you get the odd bang and bump from the board it’s also a lot less harsh. This softboard is a bigger board with a generous shape so there’s plenty of area to float you and get you going. When paddling this generous shape helps you catch waves picking up the swell of the wave. The width gives you stability so helping you get to your feet. Once you’re on your feet you can start to progress as the shape does tuck in at the tail, so helping you do turns.
While the board is a softboard it’s constructed for durability. Externally there’s EVA bumpers on the rails, so if you bang the board it won’t damage. Internally there’s 2 stringers, wood coated epoxy like a normal surfboard. These help keep the board from breaking if hit by powerful waves. The stringers also help the board keep its shape on the wave. So giving you speed and performance. An HDPE slick covers the bottom also giving you protection from damage. It’s the same as used on bodyboards so you get speed and fun. The Shakka Pro Softboard comes with 3 soft fins. So you’ve got all you need to get you in the water.
