Q: I have a son turning 13 asking for a first time board. He is 5'6" and over 100 lbs. Would you recommend this for a beginner? We also saw a few all foam boards but no stringers…does that make a difference?
Posted On: 10/8/15 By: Courtney
A: Hi Courtney, The 5’8 Board has as weight limit of 180 lbs. While that particular board would be good for his weight, I think his height would be the main concern. I would recommend our 6’2’’ board or our 7’ board. As far as the stringers go, I think for foam boards it is important to have stringers because it strengthens the board. Some surfboards have no stringers but those are usually the fiberglass boards because their materials and the construction of the board add stiffness so the stringers are not needed. Let me know if you have any other questions! I am happy to help!

Q: Hi I have 3 kids (twin 8 year olds & 12 yr old) all under 110lbs with very good balance & comfortable in the water. Do you think they could use the 5'8" Fish as a paddle board or just to sit on and paddle with a kayak paddle? Thanks!

A: Hi Joanie, even as your kids' sizes, we do not recommend using surfboards as stand up paddle boards, since that is not their intended use. I would recommend looking at the California Board Company 9' Soft Stand Up Paddleboard Package, if you are looking for an affordable stand up paddle board for your kids.

Q: I've seen some CBC Fish/Sushi 5'8" boards advertised as 5.5 inches thick...but yours says 2.5" thick. Is it really 3 inches thick or is this a typo?
Posted On: 9/12/14 By: Melissa
A: Hi, Melissa. The board is between 2.5 and 3 inches thick. Any listing that indicated the board was 5.5 inches thick was likely a typo. Please let us know if we can help you with anything else. Thanks.

Q: Does the sushi 5.8 need to be waxed?
Posted On: 6/29/14 By: Jj
A: Hi, Jj. The CBC soft boards do not usually require wax since the deck is a laminated, grippy surface unlike a slick surfboard deck. Please let us know if we can help you with anything else.

Q: We are looking for a beginner surf board for our son who wants to start surfing. He's only 46 inches tall about about 45lb. Suggestions? Thanks.

A: Hi, Michelle. In terms of value and overall weight, the 5'8" Fish is a nice place to start. Another option to consider is the Liquid Shredder Black Ball Tri-Fin Kids Element Series 5 ft  designed with kids in mind; it has a weight limit up to 80 lbs, so it leaves some growing room. I might also suggest the Kids Element Series 4'2" Dual Aluminum Stringers Patented Peruvian Soft Surfboard, although the weight limit on this board is only 50 lbs. Please let us know if we can help you with anything else. Thanks!
