7'6" X 21 5/8" X 2 3/4" (59L)

We would recommend this for beginner riders weighing 60-85kg, although if you are an experienced surfer of any weight, you'd be able to use this to get your wave count up on the smaller days. Having one of these in your quiver is a surefire way to ensure there is no waves too small or too crowded, so you'll be surfing more than ever! 

 *Fins Included

100% Waterproof Moulded EPS Core

This core provide unhindered strength and enhanced durability while retaining light weigh characteristics.

Softlite Boards are created from exclusively owned moulds. These have been created and refined through a collaboration of renowned surfboard shapers and team riders. 

Using moulded cores allows for a tougher core and ensures all boards are consistently high quality with no imperfections.

10lb PE Deck skin

Each Softlite is encapsulated in a 10lb PE Deck skin for extra strength, durability and traction.

Xtra Duralinx Slick

A super High Density PE Slick Bottom for protection, speed and durability.

Bamboo X Epoxy Stringer System

Each Koolite Board Contains 2 x Stringers. Each Bamboo Stringer is re-enforced with Fibreglass Taping & Epoxy Resin to provide maximum strength.

Exoskeletal Strength Membrane

The ESM is a unique layer fused between the EPS Core and PE Deckskin. It increases durability and impact absorption, while also providing a high strength lamination between these two materials.

Tail Buffers

We use an extra layer of PE for increased impact absorption in heavy use areas. 

Bones & Shanks Fin System

This fin system allows quick and easy fin installation and removal. It is compatible with other fin types so you can change fins to suit conditions or alter board performance.

It also allows a deck with no visible fin screws.

Sizing Tip - Its best to use your discretion here a little. Kids (they are often a bit more agile) or people with a bit of previous ocean experience are generally best suited to the higher end of the recommended weight scale. Adults or Complete learners are probably best suited towards the lower end of the weight scale.

Softlite Chop Stick

The Chop Stick has become the most popular board in our range, and with good reason.

Its the perfect addition (or starting point) to your quiver, to help you surf more often, catch more waves and have more fun!

It's available in sizes from 6'0 through to 9'0, so there's a board there for everyone, depending on your size and skill level.

BOARD FEATURES

Shape

The Chop Stick uses our Mini Mal template. This is ideal for learning as they paddle fast, allowing you to catch more waves, and give you a little more time to get to your feet. Once your up and riding, the wider nose makes them extremely stable.

Thickness

We have been mindful to make the Chop Stick a touch thinner than the typical Soft Surfboard. While a thicker board is good for the early stages of learning, they are much harder to turn! By keeping the Chop Stick a touch thinner, this ensures your board doesn't hold you back once you start progressing.

Rails

Due to our Moulded Core process, we have been able to refine our rails profiles (particularly at the front end), so they are nice and rounded, and not sharp and bulky. This help to stop you from nosediving & catching rails while riding, and similarly to the thickness, makes the board a bit more responsive through turns.

NEW COLOURS

Whether your into Pastels, Fluro's or Earthy tones, we've got the largest selection (and we think the best) colourways going round!

BAMBOO STRINGER TECHNOLOGY

We use Bamboo Stringers, re-enforced with fibreglass sheeting and epoxy resin to give the perfect amount of flex, and greatly decreasing the chance of snapped boards.

The introduction of this technology has meant we've had very few snapped boards!

Bones AND SHANKS FIN SYSTEM

Easy to install and remove fins. Compatible with other fin two tab systems, allowing you to change your fins to suit conditions or alter board performance.

This also allows us to have a Deck without fin screws.

EXCLUSIVE SOFTLITE MOULDS

These have been created through collaboration with our Softlite Team and renowned surfboard shapers.

Using moulds ensures that every board comes out identical with no imperfections. It also creates a harder shell of EPS foam on the outside making Softlite boards stiffer and more durable than competitors who use similar cores.

★★★★★

After not surfing for over 20 years, thought we would pick of these up for me and the kids. I'm 6'2 92 kgs. The board is extremely stable, fast to paddle and easy to launch onto waves. The rails to not grab in at all, I found it easy to find the centre of balance of the board which made it really easy to pop up. The board has no tendancy to put the nose it and you can get a turn out of it. My youngest daughter who is 10 and 40kgs can also catch waves in small surf no problems. Everyone in the family has been able to stand up on it with nearly no experience. Great starter board for the family.

Amazing board, fantastic crew, great value!

Bought a chopstick 7'6 and I just love it. The board feels very strong and stable while thin enough with smooth rail to start learning how to carve.

The crew at Softlite is just fantastic and I truly recommend a pick-up at their Chippendale warehouse.
