The 5’0″ is the ultimate first board for any grommet!
In saying that though we wanted to design a board that would be a perfect first board for a grom, but also rippable for someone more experienced. This shape is similar to the small wave performance shortboards such as Neck Beard and Dumpster Diver.
The Pop Sticks are based on a traditional surfboard shape and designed for all levels on surfing, although we have given them a little bit of extra width and thickness. Suggested lengths will depend on height, weight and skill levels.
We would recommend this for beginner riders weighing 20-30kg, although if you are an experienced surfer up to 80-85kg, it should float you as well.

For the beginner to intermediate rider, these boards are a good step when progressing from a Mini Mal, or when the goal is to ride a fibreglass shortboard.
For the experienced rider, these boards have a little bit more rocker, making them more suitable for better wave conditions, and similar in performance to their usual shortboard.
The boards are constructed using exclusive Softlite Moulds – This ensures that every board comes out identical with no imperfections. It also creates a harder shell of EPS foam on the outside making Softlite boards stiffer and more durable than competitors who use similar cores.
No screws on deck -No kicking your toes on screws, looks good and is easier to wax deck.
Bones and Shanks Fin System – Easy to install and remove fins. Compatible with other fin two tab systems, allowing you to change your fins to suit conditions or alter board performance
Bamboo Stringer System – This is re-enforced with fibreglass sheeting and epoxy resin to give the perfect amount of flex.
