9'0" Retro Noserider - Foamy

Modeled after the longboards of the 1960's, the Retro Noserider provides more stability and glide than your conventional longboard. By combining a wider-than-normal square tail with a scooped nose and 50/50 rails, this board makes noseriding a breeze. Ideal for small conditions, pointbreaks, and lazy summer days. 

Unlike other soft tops on the market, this board is constructed from a hand-shaped epoxy core and has a high-density wood stringer.  The rails and bottom contours are also hand-shaped, and the board is finished with Hexcel cloth and epoxy resin.  The top deck/rails are wrapped and vacuum-sealed with a texturized EVA foam. 

As a result, this board has the cushy feel of a foamy coupled with the performance/durability of a retro longboard.  Gone are the days of waxing up your board or having to worry about rail dings.

Absolutely perfect noserider

It's perfect... I wanted a light noserider with low rocker. My middle aged neck and shoulders appreciate that it is lightweight, but a real wave catcher in the water.

All around great purchasing experience

The entire purchase process from Paragon was ideal. I was hesitant buying a board from the west coast and having it delivered to the east coast. The Paragon team walked me through the process and everything went as promised. I could not be happier with the purchase.

Detailed Review with Good Information

I do my homework, so for those of you who also do the homework and research before making a purchase, then this review is for you. I hope it helps. My background, I have surfed for years and on a scale of either Advanced, Intermediate or Beginner level surfer, as a choice, I would put myself in the Intermediate level. I have surfed up and down the east coast and I have surfed everything from 1 foot to 15 foot. I have surfed performance boards to grovelers to midlength to longboards. Where I surf on the east coast, in the south, we only where wetsuits for about 2 to 3 months of the year and then our water temperature will remain above 74 degrees, which means we surf in board shorts and the foam on the board did cause skin irritation underneath the knees and around the inside of my legs. My guess is that where I am hanging my legs and knees over the side of the board while sitting between sets and where my board shorts did not cover my skin is where I got the irritation. To fix that problem, I did end up purchasing both 3/4 compression pants and then tried compression knee sleeves to wear while I surfed on the board and both on their own worked from keeping me legs from irritating, but because I have to wear one of those items under my board shorts I subtracted one star, but I am using and enjoying the surfboard, so I would rate it a 4+, if that helps. Everything else with the board is a 5 star, so let’s review the 5 stars of the board. Since I surf on the east coast, which is primarily soft beach breaks, the 9’ Retro Noserider Foamy seems to catch those small mushy waves, which the volume of the board helps in those small mushy waves, but with the board combining a wider than normal square tail with a scooped nose and 50/50 rails, this board makes noseriding a breeze and is ideal for small conditions, but I can see it in pointbreaks, and difenitely see it in those lazy summer days. This thing covers all the bases with smooth maneuverability and cruisey paddling. In regards to the center fin that came with my purchase, it was a high quality fiberglass fin made by Paragon Surfboards factory, which was fine, but for the record, the single fin box is just that and you can interchange your favorite center single fin, if you have other fins. I added my 9” True Ames Greenough 4-A fin, which again, there is no real difference from a quality perspective of what came with my purchase, however, the True Ames Greenough 4-A fin is designed for both speed generation and spending time surfing in the pocket, so the 4-A is a fin that will hold when you need it to and release when the time is right, which seems to fit perfect with my 9’ Retro Noserider Foamy. The other nice thing with having a real and true single fin box, as compared to other cheaper foamy boards on the market, it allows you to adjust your fin in relation to the tail of your surfboard, since where you place your fins in relation to the tail of your surfboard will change how it feels. Fins attached more towards the front will feel looser. While fins more towards the back will give the surfer a more controlled feel. When you compare the 9’ Retro Noserider Foamy to other foamy boards on the market where you get plastic fins that screw into one spot and cannot be adjusted to help you with how you want the board to feel and the fins are not interchangeable with other fins adds to the 5 star rating for the 9’ Retro Noserider Foamy, since it provides all of the above. This board has the cushy feel of a foamy coupled with the performance and durability of a traditional retro longboard, but for half the price. So to sum it up, if you surf in a location where a wetsuit or your skin is covered up all the time, then the only issue I had with the foam irritating the skin would not be an issue, so this would be a 5 star board for you, but if you surf with skin exposed to the foam, then you may need to purchase something to protect skin from the irritation and compression pants or compression knee sleeves may be needed to protect against the skin irritation. Again, I hope this review helps with your homework and research and you have now decided to buy the board, which I believe, in the end, you will be satisfied.
