New Premium Construction - designed by us, tested in NZ's waves and then refined - to create the ultimate entry-level surfboard. This soft-top board now features firm HDPE base for rigidity, stringers and full EVA wrap, so not only does your favourite beginner-surfer get a soft surface that's a lot gentler on face-plants, they benefit from a higher-performance board that's easy to ride. It's a board they'll enjoy even after they've mastered the basics. Phil Wallis, legendary surf instructor at Piha was even riding it in west coast sets of 3-4ft with ease.
Here's what he has to say about our this board:
"The 7'2 foam top Container Door/Saltwater Scientist board is an excellent addition to their product range. It is perfect for intermediate surfers and especially children under 15 years of age who want a board that is hard-wearing, safe in the shore dump, but still surfs like a high performance board. What especially impressed me was how the board picked up speed through turns and transitioned from rail to rail just like a fibreglass board. For parents, the foam rails and deck will ensure your children are safe, but the shape of the board means they will progress their surfing at the same rate as if they were on a more expensive fibreglass version. For the price, safety and high performance capacity, it's a 5/5 rating." - Phil Wallis, Piha Surf
So if you're looking for a step up from our all-soft boards - this is it!
