Surfboards for Women, Boys and Girls


There are not necessarily specific shapes for women or children - as everyone's suited to one of the board types mentioned in the guide. Most women will ride similar boards to men - but the length and type will vary due to the woman's size, fitness and ability. Female learners will effectively learn on the same boards as men. When they progress, again - it will follow the same pattern as a men's board suitability, and will again be dictated by her size, ability and fitness. The same goes for children. The shapes remain the same - but they can ride smaller boards due to their overall lower volume.
