MF Softboards Review – the MF Eugenie 5’10

The Eugenie by MF Softboards is a performance foam surfboard. Mick Fanning started MF Softboards recently and has brought some interesting foam surfboards on the market. The Eugenie model is a thruster that comes in various sizes. I tested the 5’10 and I had a blast surfing on this foamie. It honestly feels like riding a rigid board which makes turning and pumping much easier. The 5’10 Eugenie allows you to paddle in all sorts of waves and make proper turns like you would on a shortboard. I preferred it to the MF Twin 5’8 that I also tested. The MF softboards are much different from other foam boards. Here’s why –

Softech Handshaped 8’0 review – our experience with this soft top

Softech has expanded its foam surfboard range immensely the past years. It now has fishes, quads, mini simmons…you name it! We tested a more traditional Softech soft top: the Softech 8’0 of the Handshaped line. The yellow / blue soft boards are a common sight in surf schools and rentals. But how is the Softech 8’0 for intermediate surfers? Does it allow you to do turns and catch steeper waves? We rode the board and here is our verdict: the Softech Handshaped 8’0 is a good board for absolute beginners or for people that like longboarding. We can say that it’s also a fun board for intermediate surfers. It paddles into waves pretty easily and is stiff enough to make some mellow longboard style turns.

Olaian 900 5’4 foam surfboard review – our experience with this Decathlon soft top

The Olaian 900 5’4 foam surf board is a mini simmons or beater performance foamie. Decathlon follows a trend in surfing, that of the ultra short foam boards for shore breaks and wedgy waves. We tested the board and we found it very maneuverable – almost too much so! Once you’re on the board it turns so quickly. It’s easy to generate speed and it performs well in different types of waves. In bigger waves the board gets a little shaky, though. Bottom line of this review: The Olaian 5’4 is a bouncy, skatey shore break freak machine – and definitely not for newbies!

Olaian 900 6′ foam surfboard review – our experience with this Decathlon soft top

How is the performance of this Decathlon soft board? We put the Olaian foam 900 6’0 to the test. In our experience it’s a fun, versatile foam surfboard that’s a whole lot more capable than the price suggests. However…I wouldn’t call it a performance surfboard and I’ll explain why in this review.
We love the design and it gives a super fun riding experience in both small/choppy waves and steep shorebreaks. We tested the board in different surfing conditions – read our review here.
