Types of Surfboards
Fish Style Surfboard:
Fish surfboards are designes to surf smaller waves. Fish surfboards used to be surfboards for intermediate/advanced users. But with many new designs and some bigger fish boards, they can also be used by some beginners (beginners that plan to surf quite a lot and want to have a board they can progress with).
"The classic surfboard". Perfect for high performance surfing in small to medium waves. Recommended for intermediate/advances surfers. Not a beginner's choice!
This surfboard is something "in between." You will kind of get the feeling of a longboard, as well as you get some of the maneuverability of a shorter board. Funboards are perfect when learing surfing for bigger kids and smaller adults.
This is the "original" surfboard, and longboards are still very popular! A longboard is quite roomy, but it will offer you great fun - for sure! Easy to get on, and perfect for beginners. Cruising a longboard is also great fun for intermediate/advanced surfers.
