Soft Top Surfboards are just as the name describes - a surfboard with a soft deck top on top. Soft Top Surfboards are great surfboards for beginners or people learning to surf. The soft deck top allows for a more comfortable paddle and is also very forgiving with dents and dings when learning to surf. Soft Top Surfboards are available in many different materials and sizes. Soft Tops can be a good transition from Bodyboarding when learning to surf.
