GREAT PROGRESSION: If you’ve outgrown your basic beginner’s board, or you’ve got a bigger budget for a board to learn on, the Tiki’s Epic Soft Board definitely heads up the list of board choices. For a start, it comes with all the benefits the softboard offers – padded top layers, soft rails and flexible fins to protect you from the pain of knocks. But it’s also been carefully designed to offer the surfer with a couple of seasons under their board the chance to progress without the usual frustrations that come with learning to surf.
Firstly, it has a great level of buoyancy so once you’re up on your feet you’ll hopefully stay there without being flipped back into the water! And, because of its sleek, Mini Mal design, you’ll find it has a more responsive, faster and stiffer ride than other beginner/intermediate soft boards, but still with plenty of control. You’ll really start to drive your board to carve and link those impressive turns. That bit of additional rigidity also means that even in the mushiest of surf, you’ll be able to get out there and make the most of the water, especially in the summer months.
GREAT BOARD CHOICE, HIGH DURABILITY: Whilst the Tiki Epic is an ideal board for surfers who are looking to progress, it’s also a great addition to your board collection for those times when you’re heading to the water for a surf party with family or friends as those softer edges are definitely kinder to heads, legs and arms in the water. And compared to hard boards, soft boards are easy to take to the beach. No need to wax, light to carry and because of its highly durable outer layers, it’s pretty hard to break!
The Epic Softboard range is the next step up in foamies. Underneath the 4mm EVA skin is a 2 x 6oz fibreglass layers with a full rail lap. This makes the deck very resilient to impacts from knees and general damage.
The rail lap and stringers also make these stiffer and more of a ‘surfboard’ feel so they actually surf very well.
