Surf Style Wakesurf Board
Now that you have heard about skim style wakesurf boards lets dive into what a surf style board may have to offer. Not all riders are going to ride the same or perform the same types of tricks. While skim style boards are ideal for surface and shove-it style tricks, a surf style wakesurf board is ideal for cruising and air tricks. Due to these boards having a thicker and more traditional construction they tend to be far more buoyant. The benefit to this added buoyancy is the ability to ride longer and mellower waves. This also makes a surf style board ideal for beginner riders as well. Some of our favorite surf style wakesurf boards have to be the Doomswell Neo, Ronix Coalfish Classic, and Liquid Force Rocket.
While surf and skim are the primary wakesurf board types, there is also a third category referred to as hybrid wakesurf boards. These boards blur the lines between surf and skim, providing exceptional performance to accommodate more than one riding style. Some of these boards include the Ronix Fish Skim and Doomswell Nubstep.
