    @Wr3cKaGevZ Where abouts in Cali are you. There are a couple of shops that sell good used boards that work from Shortboards to Funboards. Look @ Stewart Surfboards and check out the “Fartknocker” a super fun shortboard. Get around a 6″0 or slightly shorter. And also look at the 7’6″ Hydro hull fun board. You will catch so many waves with that board! I have ridden it in tiny surf to 15″+ and worked!

    I was just looking at the board you were talking about on the Isle website. If you are just beginning, you would struggle on that board and not know it. There are much better boards out there that work well and are really fun. What is your budget and where do you plan on surfing?? The idea is to catch waves and that equals fun. (I may test ride a 5’5 twin fin and then go to a 10′ board in one session and catch a ton of waves. Fun!)

    It should work very well for you, super fun size to ride at any skill level!
    Good idea to give the boys at Catch Surf a call and get their input.

    I am 6’6″ and 240. Would the 6’6 YQuad work for me. I have a 6 10 epoxy quad fish but like the idea of a quality soft board. Are you planning on doing other types of soft boards (larger shortboard style hybrid type of boards. I think there is a market for that with us older, heavier guys)

    Call our shop line at 949-218-0428. You can also email us via our website. Please provide the following info: order # if purchased via our site (for surf shop purchase: date of purchase, location of purchase, board model and size), your full name, address and phone. The older versions made by Tom before Catch Surf had some stringer issues and the sun would wrinkle skin. Tom was still in development stage. We beefed the stringers and developed our own skin w/UV protectant that does not wrinkle.

    Hey Ryan,

    Can you email us your order number (go to “Contact Us” on our site)? This will help us pull the appropriate info on your board.

    If it’s under warranty, you can send it in and we will repair or replace it for for free. And even it’s not under warranty, you can still send it in and we will fix it for free. So basically, get it to us and we will fix it better than new and get it back to you ASAP. We can fix in about a day.

    Thanks and stay stoked!
    George @ Catch Surf

    I ike the boards I have two. Called George played phone tag. Have not heard back since. One board has broken stringer (defective craftsmanship) Both boards are cracked and have a heavy wrinkle on deck. They both suck water and have a continuous drip.

    What stores are these boards sold at?

    I asked this guy to send photos, copy of a receipt, something to prove he bought a board and it was damaged. I even called the surf shop he claimed to have bought it at and they said the boards they ordered were fine. He never sent us anything, just emails with personal insults. I offered to repair for free. I even gave him my personal cell and email and he never contacted me to resolve. And instead he tries to bash our boards on youtube. Not cool.

    Our boards are the finest soft surfboards you can buy, both in terms of performance and durability. We warranty the boards and stand by them 100%. We have sold thousands and have had only a handful of issues, all of which we repaired or replaced for FREE.
