To give you more insight on this board.
Some of our teamriders define this board as the perfect shortboard for places providing summer waves with less power.
It has a lot of speed with the take-off that you get sooo much more time to look at your line so you can actually prepare and get ready to try your first real moves on a short softboard.
Long story short, this soft top surfboard is a perfect match for people growing towards fun shortboards and looking to link turns. Even in small waves you can look for turns and manoeuvres in tight places.
Quad fin setup
This means your softboard is equipped with a quad fin setup and has 4 fins. Double fins left and right + 2 small rear fins left and right.
A quad fin setup is lovely to generate speed in small summer conditions. Even quick turns and small manoeuvres in weaker waves are perfect for a quad setup soft top surfboard. All of this comes with a lot of quality and control.
Futures is a universal system used by all leading surfboard brands in the world. The Futures fin system is the lightest and strongest system in the world.
We choose for this system because it’s a proven, no-nonsense and very durable solution to have fins on your softboard.
This system is compatible with all fins carrying the futures adaptor, and believe us, that’s a lot. All colors, shapes and setups available arround the globe.
The top of the surfboard, our softskin IXPE, is always groovy :) A lizard skin, meaning that the IXPE material has a good and deep texture that provides a lot of grip.
Do I need to wax my soft top surfboard? Yes and no :)
Basically you don’t need to wax your Softdog surfboard, but when you want to ride it more radical, we still advise you to do so. Waxing is also a form of meditation and a cool thing to do.
When you are surfing with booties wax is becoming of less importance.
So… we leave it up to you if you need surf wax for your fun softboard.
Removing wax from your soft top surfboard is easy. Just use a friendly detergent like ‘ecovert’ and you can rub down the wax from your surfboard.
