Surftech Surftech RF Soulfish Surfboard - 2007 BCS
The Surftech RF Soulfish Surfboard doesn't care if the waves are gutless—this board lives for small to shoulder high surf. Randall French shaped this surfboard with a super flat entry and exit rocker to keep your speed up even through the flattest sections. The full, forgiving rail maximizes flotation for smooth turns without slowing you down.

Hi - My son is a beginner, surfing small waves in Rhode Island. He is 5'7" and weighs approx. 145 lbs. How do I know which size board is good for him? It will be a Christmas present, so Ican't ask him!
thanks for your input,

I would suggest a board at least 21 inches wide and like 2 1/2 inches thick or thicker to ride. As far as the shape go with a fish or funboard. Im 26 years old and have owned many boards and every board I have had I have learned something from now I have one board for any kind of wave that I love and it allows me to ride with no restrictions.

Don't listen to anyone who recommends that a beginner start with a shortboard in order to look cool or avoid ridicule from your "friends" (if that's the case, you need different "friends," not a shortboard). A beginner needs a stable, bouyant board that is at least 2 ft. longer than they are tall. It can make the difference between learning how to surf or giving up in frustration.

If you get him a long board, he'll only surf longboard. look at something a few inches taller then he is 5'10" 5'11" if he is a skinny kid stay narrow if he is heavier go wide 18-20" width. but stick to the short board, he'll learn it and his friends won't give him a hard time.

I would get him a fun shape or a longboard. A round thick 8 footer or 7'6 might be better. A longboard is really the thing a beginner needs for the first couple years. Second beach needs a longboard. You only get a board that is around your height later down the road. CHeers
