Surfers looking to take a step up to an eight foot surfboard can hone their skills and master manoeuvres on one of these durable and lightweight Osprey 8ft Foamie Surfboards! The foamie surfboard has a wooden stringer running through it which greatly improves its rigidity and helps a surfer to master stability. The wooden stringer also makes the soft surfboard far stronger so that it lasts far longer than traditional foam surfboards. Durability is further enhanced by the 8ft surfboard's Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Core. EPS surfboards are tougher and lighter than traditional polyurethane or polyester resin boards, and this greatly improves manoeuvrability on the water. Not only does the surfboard include a safety leash to prevent it from drifting, but it also comes with smooth transition fins to improve control on the water. The EPS surfboard also features a super slick bottom for greater precision and speed. The foam surfboard's funky square tail design makes it extremely responsive and swift on the turn. Available in a choice of yellow (black detail slick bottom) or blue (blue detail slick bottom) the XPE surfboard is decorated with an Osprey logo by the tail and along the right hand side. A large Osprey Surf crest also appears on the top and base of the surfing board. As well as being a great way for surfers to get their practice in without breaking the bank balance, this high quality eight foot foamie is absolutely perfect for surf schools and training courses!
