When developing the MF Softboards range it was clear that softboards traditionally lacked performance!
Elite surfers traditionally steer clear of riding soft surfboards due to a lack of performance. Traditionally softboards are produced utilising rudimentary materials and construction techniques.
Performance issues were successfully resolved by utilising construction techniques and materials that are typically reserved for cutting-edge high performance surfboards and blending these materials and techniques with traditional soft surfboard construction.
Mick Fanning Softboards brand is a reflection of Mick Fanning’s personal brand.
A product line designed to ensure Mick as an elite athlete can perform at a high level.
MF Softboards provides an introduction to surfing for the next generation with an inclusive approach promoting community, health and well being.
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam is very light and strong. EPS foam has more buoyancy and floatation increasing paddling speed and manoeuvrability
HYBRID CARBON SPINE
Hybrid Carbon Fibre cloth is recessed into the deck of the EPS core and acts in a similar way to a leaf spring providing storage of potential energy during bottom turns with a progressive release resulting in a smooth transition during top turns
E-CLOTH/EPOXY INTERNAL SHELL
The EPS core is laminated with layers of high grade E-Cloth and Epoxy resin forming a strong internal shell.
SOFT EXTERIOR SHELL
The exterior of MF Softboards has 4mm IXPE deck skin and HDPE bottom skin creating a true soft surface!
FCSII & FUTURES
MF Softboards utilise an industry first fin plug installation enhancing performance when you upgrade your soft fins for genuine FCSII or Futures compatible hard fins!
