The starting point of the Kennel construction is durability meets performance! We believe that our Kennel soft top surfboards should be a good compromise between lifespan and performance surfing.
First of all: ALL Softdog constructions are 100% sealed! This seems like a no-brainer for us, but this is not the case for many softboard brands out there. 100% sealed means a higher quality of surfing and a longer lifespan for your soft top surfboard. It packs a high-density EPS core wrapped in an eco-friendly IXPE grippy lizard top skin. In between you can find a range of components to make your board stiffer and last longer. The Kennel Retriever funboards have a double laminated stringer on top AND on the bottom of your EPS core. Yes, this adding weight BUT way more important is that it’s adding a lot of durability without sacrificing in performance. Also, we worked strictly with 6oz fiberglass sheets to add strength and durability in your 7’0 soft top surfboard! Last but not the least, from surfboard sizes up 6’6 on we worked with an extra bamboo stringer to not compromise on stiffness when you get a longer board. It’s a lot of tech talk, but we are passionate about our fun softboards and surfing in general. We want to make softboards that work as good as it can get! Now paddle out and GO HARD, RIDE SOFT please!
