You're a beginner, you're on your first sessions or you're just starting to surf again but you want to learn the basics again? Which surfboard to choose when you are a beginner ? First of all, you need balance! A beginner board is above all a foam board, long, wide enough and with a large volume. You will therefore surf at the beginning on a board that will be bigger than you are. The advantage of foam is that you will have a better buoyancy, a better balance when you will try to make your take-off, and that you will not hurt yourself or the others if ever the board escapes you. You can then gradually decrease in size and weight, and move on to an intermediate board! You feel your level is increasing? We invite you to read our article about choosing a board when you have an intermediate level!
