The starting point of the Kennel construction is durability meets perfomance! We believe that our Kennel boards should be a good compromise between lifespan and performance.
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 softie surfboard brands out there. 100% sealed means a higher quality of surfing and a longer lifespan for your Softdog surfboard. It packs a high-density EPS core wrapped in an eco-friendly IXPE grippy lizard topskin. In between you can find a range of components to make your board stiffer and last longer. The Kennel boards 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 perfomance. Also we worked strictlty with 6oz fiberglass sheets to add strenght and durability in your dog! Last but not the least, from boardsizes up 6’6 on we worked with an extra bamboo stringer to not compromise on stifness when you get a longer board. It’s a lot of tech talk, but we are passionate about our boards and surfing in general. We want to make sofboards that work as good as it can get! No paddle out and GO HARD, RIDE SOFT please!
