What people are saying about it:

“I tried this board as a rental. Loved it. its lightweight to paddle easily, sturdy to stand on, rides waves really well, and its fast. I have my own 8 foot hard board, but came to buy one for days when I’m lazy (still learning) and for kids to learn on.” – Ivan on

“Ideal beginner board. My daughter (16) has been struggling on a 7ft foamie but was up very quickly on this, my son (21) was straight up having surfed occasionally before and I had my longest ride ever before we unfortunately had to finish our day at the beach. We were catching 1-2ft waves no problem. Light for transporting and easy to fit the fins and leash. Good quality leash with swivels at both ends.” – Mark Ashcroft on

“The California Board Company Classic 108 9ft longboard has to be one of the best quality, well priced soft deck surfboards on the market. This brilliant board would make the perfect first surfboard for the larger adult looking for a well made, durable and stable platform to learn on. Unlike most soft deck boards the Classic 108 has a well designed shape which will continue to perform as the rider improves so you won’t have to reach for your wallet as soon as you’ve mastered the basics.” on YouTube
