As worded by Softlite surfboards themselves, “to put it basically, the main reason we recommend getting a softboard is because it will make you go surfing more and catch more waves.”
Softlite stand by the valid ideology of the EPS foam offering more volume which in turn makes paddling and standing ten folds easier than it might be on a normal fibreglass board. Obviously the more you do something the more you improve, so Softlite stand by their boards offering the best buoyancy and stability allowing you to improve at a better rate. Flag friendly and open beach friendly, these soft surf boards are made for all conditions and have been tested accordingly. With one of the best colour ranges on the market, Softlite are here to offer plenty of bright colour combos alongside toned-down colourways for the every day surfer.
Softlite use an EPS core (Extruded Polystyrene) in their boards which is completely water tight and improves obviously the durability of your board, and even still, on the rare occasion you ding your board it’s hardly as serious as it might have been on a fibre glass board. Constructed using exclusive Softlite moulds, every board comes out identical with zero imperfections and also creates a harder shell of EPS foam on the outside making Softlite boards stiffer and durable than many competitors variations of EPS. Each and every shape from the Softlite factory has been created and manufactured via collaboration with professional surfers and shapers. Meaning you won’t be left with a useless board should you improve quickly. Atop of all this, Softlite use a bamboo stringer system to reinforce their boards. All their stringers are reinforced with fibreglass sheeting and epoxy resin to give the perfect amount of flex. This in turn protects stringers from rotting and weakening over long periods of time. This is an extremely common issue in cheaper brands using wooden stringers.
So, sit back and indulge and know that you’re dealing with the best.
