The 2019 Mick Fanning Softboards Surf School Edition has been redesigned from the ground up with input from Mick along with some of the most respected and experienced surfing instructors in Australia.
With a view to create a durable and reliable product we started with the foundation of the EPS core and then worked our way through each detail revising, testing and revising. We are stoked to be offering what we believe is a product that will enable Surf Schools to leverage the Mick Fanning Softboards brand to its full potential with a durable, distinct and functional soft board!
Developed to provide a non slip surface when wet, Micro-Dot Texture when combined with a minimal application of wax ensures that the Surf School Edition is a safe, durable and a striking learn to surf platform.
Produced in a one step process the MF logo is part of the deck skin providing lasting branding that holds up to the rigours of daily school
or hire application.
It is inevitable that the Surf School Edition will be dragged by the nose or tail along the beach. With
this in mind we have included strategically positioned bumpers at the nose and tail to slow this abrasive behaviour!
Utilising an aluminium mold we fuse a dual thickness hardwood stringer into the high density EPS core.
Experience has shown that most damage comes from simply carring boards from the carpark to the beach! We think that our simple ergonomic figure 8 handle should help to eliminate some of the inevitable bumps and little accidents that happen on your way down to the sand!
The Surf School model is fully endorsed by Surfing Australia and is the offical soft board for Surf Groms which is the base of Surfing Australia’s development pathway.
SurfGroms adopts an approach to learning that uses group-based games to not only equip kids with the skills they need to surf and paddle, but also to encourage their participation by having fun. These fundamentals are aligned with the personal ethics of Mick and the entire team at Mick Fanning Softboards.
“We have been testing the updated Surf School model and I'm happy with the how the board performs, the Surfing Australia endorsement and Surf Groms association gives me confidence for the summer ahead using MF Softboards at Cronulla Surfing Academy.”
“Since changing our surf school fleet to MF SOFTBOARDS we have found that our customers are having greater success in progressing their level of surfing at a faster rate due to the stability, as well as the all round construction and performance of the boards”
