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.

I’m so happy with my Paragon Surfboard! The customer service is super friendly and very knowledgeable about surfboard construction. They explained the difference between standard polyurethane and their epoxy softtops. I learned that epoxy is stronger, more durable, and lighter. Polyurethane is heavier and faster but I decided to go for epoxy just because I’m still a beginner. This board floats/paddles really well and is super easy to catch waves and stand up.
So I was gifted the 9' version of this epoxy/foamy hybrid board. I'm 5' tall and have ridden a lot of different boards in my day. I've been surfing for over 20 years, and I'm going on my 3rd year as a surf instructor for a surf school based out of So. Cal. The weight of the board was fantastic, definitely a fun board to ride, very easy to maneuver. I highly recommend these boards if you're looking to transition from bigger boards to smaller boards or really just reccomend them as perfect boards to ride during those summer days for all kinds of breaks. I love that you don't need wax for these. As a surf instructor, they're so much better in stability and maneuverability then Wavestorms (Wavestorms are all around terrible) or the other plastic based foam tops. Our school is actually looking into these boards in bulk for our students. Paragon hybrid foamies are the closest feeling to a harder board your going to get. As a female surfer that prefers to surf in just a swimsuit whenever I can, I do just reccomend that after about 2 hours of surfing in just a bathing suit my legs got a little bit of an irritation from the foam...with that being said, I was having a lot of fun on this board and didn't want to get out of the water for 2 hours. That only happened once, and that issue was easily solved with surf leggings. Paragon makes really fun boards in general, I actually have bought a couple more in different shapes and sizes.
I’m still waiting for my board to arrive. It seems to be late or lost in shipping. Once I get it, I can tell you what I think of it.
9 0 foamy is super fun. Has been my go to for use at my semi crowded local spot that tends to have a good amount of kids to navigate around. 1 or 2 paddles to catch waves, is nice and fast and has great turning. I put in a 8 0 cutaway fin. Easy to do cheater 5s and fun to do floaters on.
