100 Foam Surfboard 6' With 3 Fins + Leash available from Decathlon
This board looks great, it's light to carry around and easy to just pop in and out of the car. There is always something super fun about rocking up at the beach with a fun foamy. As a kids board I initially thought that being so light and thin it would be hard to paddle but turns out I was wrong.
I am 5’5 and 63kgs and was very happy with the paddle and the manoeuvrability of the board. I took it out on several days, in different conditions from 2 - 4 foot waves and it paddled really fast out to the line up and onto waves with ease. It is a lot stronger than it feels, it felt safe and stable on the pop-up, yet light enough to duck dive and it rides and turns like a mini-mal board. The great shape and width gives it stability whilst still having turning ability.
The board needed a lot of wax on it as the surface is pretty slippy, especially the blue stripe area, that required extra wax. It also comes with a great quality set of fins and strong leash.
Overall - I was very surprised with this board. I actually LOVED IT and is a great option when the line up is busy and at 6’ you can ride it in the flagged area of the beach. Super fun and manoeuvrable and I would recommend it to kids and smaller, lighter adults, however, It isn’t a board to learn on due to being so small and light. I think unless you are a kid or capable surfer you would struggle to paddle and ride the board.
That said….it’s a great option to use between the flags.
