    Soft Top Surfboard FAQs

    Q: What is the difference between a surfboard and a foam board?

    A: When it comes to surfboards and foam boards, the big difference is what they're made of. The regular surfboards (often called hard boards) are usually put together using stuff like fibreglass and epoxy, giving them that classic look and feel.

    But then you've got foam boards, which are pretty much what they sound like – they've got a soft foam outside. And this material difference really changes how the boards are constructed, work and how they feel when you're out there in the waves.

    Foam boards are the friendlier option, made for beginners. They're floatier and more stable, and perfect if you're new to surfing or you just want a chill time riding the waves. On the flip side, those regular surfboards are more about speed and doing cool tricks in the water. They're more appealing if you're already a decent surfer and want to show off some moves.

    Our foam surfboards are also super strong, featuring a double stringer construction, so they'll last the test of time for the learners or more experienced surfers in your family.

    Q. What size Foam Surfboard should I get?

    A: Our Apex Blue Soft Boards come in a great range of sizes to suit every beginner or advanced surfers looking for a funboard you can throw around in the surf.

    Q: Do you wax foam boards?

    A: While foam surfboards have a naturally grippy surface, applying a layer of wax can enhance this grip and make them even easier to ride. By waxing your foam board, you're giving yourself extra traction, which is a fancy way of saying you'll find it way easier to stay steady and in control while you're out there riding the waves. However, the type of wax and the frequency of when you apply it can depend on the specific make of your foam board and the water temperature where you're surfing. Our friendly crew are happy to help if you're not sure which wax to use and how to apply out.
