5 Of The Best Soft Top Surfboard Brands For Summer 2019

Whether you’re a grom or an absolute ledge, soft top surfboards are a fun and easy alternative to the standard fibreglass make.

1. Mick Fanning Soft Top Surfboards

Who knows better than Micko? With 3 World Championships under his belt, the man knows his surf tech. These soft top surfboards are made with the experienced surf-rat in mind with speed, power, and flow as priorities of the building process.

The Eugenie was designed for fun when the surf’s giving nothing more than 2-footers. A good addition to keep handy during the surfing off-season. 

2. Spooked Kooks

Spooked Kooks have some siiiiiiiiiick colours and designs, bringing back the glory days of short shorts and thick mo’s. With a range of customisable options backed by solid engineering, Spooked Kooks are a winning company.

The Dead Hippy is the classic embodiment of Spooked Kook’s throwback culture. It’s a longboard made for finding the sweet spot on the wave and riding it all the way in. 

3. Softech Surfboards

Softech have got something for everyone as the soft top surfboard market continues to grow in popularity with surfing old-hands. The boards can cop the biggest waves and replica their fibreglass forefathers in durability.

Tom Carroll’s Signature soft top surfboard is the cornerstone of Softech’s Performance Series. Inspired by 2x WSL champ Tom Carroll, this is the closest thing you’ll get to fibreglass performance with a foam make.

4. DRAG Board Co.

These guys are all about having the best time the waves can offer and for them, softies are huge part of good times. A DRAG board is guaranteed to shake up your shredding experience for the better.

The Dart 5’6 Thruster is a little pocket rocket of fun. It’s perfect for the shories of Curl Curl or just chasing sneaky runners. Get around the rad flame and aqua colour combo. 

5. Catch Boards

The kings of the soft top surfboard, Catch Boards, are dominating the American and Australian markets. Offering some of the best company collabs and a huge range of boards, the fellas got exactly what you’re looking for.

Not for your average grom, the finless Original 54 is the ‘all-purpose, fully-customisable shred stick.’ This is what all the boys down at Tamarama are frothing over every weekend.

No matter your weapon of choice, soft top surfboards are definitely in again. Get at it, ledge.

Never underestimate the heart of a champion. #nuggetpouch #howsmystance #carpediemboyos #tbt via @garagefilms
