Train For Your First Surf Lesson:

Taking up a new surf sport and planning a surf vacation? Get our special designed Surf Starter and enjoy your next session by being prepared. We shaved weight off the nose to carve a turn with quicker precision compared to our elliptical models. The stable fish/swallow tail keeps your base grounded as you whip this board in, out and around. Get the most out of your first surf lesson by training your balance and leg endurance.

Grow Into This Board:

The large ride surface and small rail is ideal for growing kids and beginners. Progress your ride skill and ride stance until you find your comfort zone. When ready you can expand this rail by 8" inches and continue to push the limits. Pop-ups, switch foot, fancy footwork, smooth glassy surface, rough water conditions, aerial grabs and cutback power training is all possible.

Balance On These:

Create your own unique combo that suits your needs. Add Balls and Half Balls for your training. Featuring an adjustable rail so you can grow with your board. A great option for young kids with smaller feet who quickly outgrow their clothes!
3" Mini Balls: These are the smallest Balls and are very quick and responsive. They will keep you close to the ground for an easy stop for beginners. Riding on one ball forces you to stay level. Using two balls is better for footwork training. If using on an extremely padded surface or deep carpet these balls will be absorbed and limit your ride motion. Use two balls to create a double pivot board and then progress your skills to one ball.

6.5" Half Balls:
This size Half Ball is great for kids who need the added height for range of motion. You will be able to rotate the balance board better with this size. Use a 3" Mini Ball and 6.5" Half Ball for the Thrasher and Rock and Roll combos. Use a 5" Small Ball and 6.5" Half Ball for the Big Drop combo.

Get Started Here: The Surf Starter Basic Package is great for all beginners. This combo gives you 4 different types of balance boards with the Balls and Half Ball combos. When you are ready to progress in skill you can always add more Balls and Half Balls or extend your rail.

Elysia's Notes:

Most new Si Boarders chose this board because they want to learn how to surf or want to stay in shape between sessions. Many added the 8" rail extensions to get a wider stance. I love this board for the large ride surface and small compact rail. It stores easily and fits into bags for travel. I know I can train a variety of users in full body moves and rotational control.

5 of 5 Love my new Si Board! May 22, 2022
Reviewer: KellyM from Breckenridge, CO United States  
I purchased a Si board to start dryland training for my new summer adventure, surfing!  I haven't had a chance to use my new Si board extensively yet, but I have everything I need and the support from Elysia at Si Boards has been excellent!
