The Koolite is the ultimate beginner board, and is probably the easiest board in our range to learn to surf on.

We'd recommend this board for beginners up to about 75kg

It Koolite uses a rounded Mal shape for some extra surface area, but the main difference is that we've given the Koolite some extra thickness to bump up the volume. This basically means it has a lot more float making it even more stable, and easier to paddle. This will help you stand up in even the smallest and weakest of waves. 

Dimensions - 7'0" X 22 1/4" X 3 1/4" (68L)

*Thruster Fin Set 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 koolite range


The Koolite is the ultimate beginner board, and is perfect for the early stages of learning to surf. 

It uses a similar template to our Chop Stick and Test Tube shapes, but the main difference is that we've given the Koolite some extra thickness to bump up the volume.

This basically means it has a lot more float making it even more super stable, and easier to paddle. This will help you stand up in even the smallest and weakest of waves. 

We woudln't really recommend this board for advanced surfer or good quality waves, but we did test it out in some just in case.. (see clip below)

Koolite Features

Mini Mal Template

The Koolite uses a Mini Mal shape. This is ideal for learning as having a rounder nose and width through the tail creates for some extra surface area, greatly increasing the stability of the board.

This shape is also best suited to smaller, weaker waves which is ideally what you should be looking for while you are learning to surf.

Extra Thick core

While many of our other models are a touch thinner, traditionally thicker is better when you are learning to surf, so we've kept the Koolite nice and thick.

This basically means it has a lot more float making it even more stable, and easier to paddle. This will help you stand up in even the smallest and weakest of waves. 

Carry Handle

Learning to Surf is hard enough, so we want to help out where we can!

With the extra width and thickness, this board can get a little hard to carry, so we've added a carry handle to make you trips to and from the beach just that little bit easier..

plus all the usual softlite features

Moulded Cores

We have created and refined our moulds in collaboration with our team riders an renowned surfboard shapers.


Using mould 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.

Bones and shanks fin system

With this system it is extremely easy to install and remove fins. It is compatible with other fin two tab systems, allowing you to change your fins to suit conditions or alter board performance.

It also allows us to have our deck free of fin screws!

bamboo X Epoxy stringer system

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!
