The California Board Company Classic 108 9ft longboard has to be one of the best quality, well priced soft deck surfboards on the market. This brilliant board would make the perfect first surfboard for the larger adult looking for a well made, durable and stable platform to learn on. Unlike most soft deck boards the Classic 108 has a well designed shape which will continue to perform as the rider improves so you won't have to reach for your wallet as soon as you've mastered the basics. Constructed with a Heat Laminated High Density 100% Waterproof EPS Core with 3 Multi-Layered (Moulded-In) Laminated Wood Stringers to keep the board stiff and resist warping. The board has a High Density Polyethylene Slick Bottom (like professional body boards) and High Density Durable IXPE/XPE Deck (like a pro body board) with a classic stripe graphic. The Classic 108 comes complete with a safety Tri-fin system and a good quality leash. Although squarely aimed at the beginner market, the Classic 108 would make a fun surfboard for the intermediate adult looking for a bit of summer fun.
