Vision 8’0 Soft top review

Vision is a surfboard brand that is mainly active in Europe and New Zealand. Their soft boards are a surf school favorite. If you’re an advanced/intermediate surfer, the 8′ Softlite might be a good addition to your surfboard collection. We’ve had the Vision Softlite 8’0 for over a year now and what’s our verdict? Surprisingly the Vision soft top has become our most used board in Portugal. See some footage of us surfing the Vision Softlite mini malibu and read our full review here.

Indio by Pukas surfboard review – Fishy 5’6 soft top

Spains prime surf board brand Pukas recently initiated its soft top label Indio. Indio has released a whole range of soft surfboards, varying from small foam nuggets to 10ft SUPs. They have two fish-shaped models. We tested the Indio 5’6 Fishy – a small but wide entry level foam surfboard. Our review of the Indio Fishy was in 1ft onshore conditions. Our verdict: It really feels like a great surfboard for intermediate surfers that aren’t too heavy. However, the 5’6 Fishy has some downsides too (hint: durability and flex). Enjoy our review of the Pukas foam fishy.

Olaian Longboard Range – 2019 surfboard review

Olaian launched a line of well-designed and decently priced hard top longboards. The three new 2019 models look really sharp and we couldn’t wait to dive into the specs. What is the difference between the Decathlon longboards and Torq or NSP longboards? What makes the ‘performance’ longboard stand out from the other 9’0? The new Olaian 9′ is based on the old Tribord 9′, a well-priced longboard with a two+one fin option. Besides the new 9′, Decathlon introduces a high-end 9′ performance longboard with a round tail and a two+one fin setup. The third new model is the Olaian 9’4 single fin – the tallest longboard developed by Decathlon till date. The redesign under the Olaian brand has done well for the looks of the longboards!
