8′ x 23.5″ SSR Beginner Softboard Surfboard
44 in stock
8' x 23.5" x 3"- Volume 77.25L
Developed through extensive testing and real-world use over a number of years in UK surf schools, our SSR softboard range really is the toughest beginner soft top surfboard on the market. We take on board feedback from instructors and outdoor centre managers each year to perfect the design and manufacture of these surfboards so they have the highest quality and durability, while also of course being easy to learn to surf on!
8ft is a good length for adults and kids to enjoy so is a versatile length for a family surfboard. This is the regular width which is more manageable for smaller adults and kids than the wide version which is designed for larger adults.
These Softboard Surfboards benefit from the same solid construction as our regular surfboard range but with thicker glass fibre and added reinforcement on the rail, deck and bottom. Our Beginner Softboard Surfboard shapes are designed with a performance edge to enable the learner to improve quicker by catching more waves. This is a perfect board for the whole family to learn to surf on. The carry handle makes it easier to carry down to the beach and sea, while the soft IXPE textured skin provides grip and a softer landing if you should fall on it.
These boards are individually laminated and finished by hand to exacting standards. They are a premium product and constructed from the best materials available to the industry. Our boards are NOT built from a mould or 'pop-out' which means we produce a product superior in durability and strength to weight ratio.
Add in a 8ft leash to keep your board with you in the water, and tough surfboard bag to protect it in storage and on your car or van roof.

If you require an urgent exchange, it would be quickest to place a new order online first, then return the existing item (as per our normal returns process) for a full refund.
Please ensure you complete the returns form provided with your order and include it with our returned item/s. If you misplace the returns form then please contact us on 0330 043 1256 or email us at [email protected] and we will arrange for a duplicate to be sent to you.
Returns must be UNUSED with ORIGINAL TAGS attached and in the ORIGINAL packaging (where applicable) and in a resalable condition. This is the only way we can issue a refund or arrange an exchange. It is usually the case you can re-use the packaging the order came in to send goods back to us. In the case of the Surfboards and related products, please ensure (if possible) you use the original reinforcement material contained in the packaging in order to minimise potential damage. In the unlikely event that an item is returned to us in an unsuitable condition, Circle One reserves the right not to refund the item and arrange to send the item back to you at your expense.
The cost of returns is the responsibility of the customer unless the item is damaged, faulty or the wrong item. All returned goods remain your responsibility until they reach us. We advise you use a secure delivery method which requires a signature upon delivery. If you used PayPal to pay for your initial order, then you may be able to claim back the cost of postage through them.
As soon as returned goods reach us, we will process your refund and you will be notified accordingly.
SURFBOARD DELIVERY: due to their more fragile construction, we make extra effort to pack our surfboards really well in order to minimise damage in transit. It is rare that damages occur but we strongly urge you inspect the board and packaging at point of delivery. If you find any damage to the product or packaging, please sign as ‘damaged’ and contact us on 0330 043 1256 at your earliest convenience.
