Selecting Your First Surfboard – advice for beginner surfers.

Let’s begin by saying you can learn to surf on whatever board you like, but some are easier to surf on than others. So selecting the right one will maximize how fast you will pick up learning to surf. So in short if you want to progress quickly, a beginner surfboard such as the softboard or Foamie is the perfect learn to surf board.

Why do surf schools teach on a soft surfboard? Because they are highly buoyant which makes them easier to stand up and catch waves and they are made of soft foam so if you happen to hit yourself on the board then the soft material will minimize your injuries. They are super stable on the water usually due to the wide dimensions enabling a new surfer to stand up easier than say a fiberglass surfboard which has less buoyancy. DO NOT be fooled by the myth that starting on a normal fibreglass surfboard is just as easy! NO NO NO!! Why do all surf schools teach on a softboard!!!

Do I need to wear a Life Jacket when I am Kayaking or Stand up Paddleboarding?

A stand up paddle board is not a vessel and so you are not required to wear a lifejacket.

But with Kayaking or Canoeing on 1 November 2010, new compulsory lifejacket wearing requirements came into effect. Lifejackets are required to be worn in the following circumstances and this covers kayaks and canoes:


  • Are required to wear an appropriate lifejacket at all times. This can be a Type 1, Type 2 or Type 3.


  • Are required to wear a lifejacket on enclosed waters more than 100m from shore.
  • On open(coastal) waters, including when crossing a coastal bar or on white water at all times.
  • This can be a Type 1, Type 2 or Type 3.
