Soft boards are an incredibly fun addition to all surfer’s quivers, but evenmore essential for some. They allow kids and beginners to paddle (or be pushed) into waves without any fear of dinging themselves or the board. And for experienced surfers, they’re the perfect way to get in the water and have a good time no matter what, without any expectations. We want to make it easy for parents to help their children fall in love with surfing on a soft board, then go and sneak a few waves in themselves, even while using the same board. It’s the best of both worlds, and every reason you could ever need a foamie, all in one. To build the best soft boards possible, we’ve kept it simple.

Proven JS small wave shapes that you can actually manoeuvre, built to maximize durability and safety. It starts with the same top-quality materials and construction processes we use in our world-renowned JS range, and is finished with a soft 3mm PE shell all over, plus a microdot thermoform bottom. An EPS core is covered in 2x layers of 4-ounce glass on the deck and 1x layer of 4-ounce glass on the bottom. This maintains long lasting strength and the right weight to keep momentum when you’re surfing. A carbon T-Stringer provides extra stiffness and strength, with a more controlled flex that feels even better when flying down the line.



The Big Baron Softboard is made for those small days around home, where it calls for a little more volume. Up to 3ft.




An overall flat rocker is the perfect all-round rocker creating speed and glide in small to average conditions.

Fin setup

Comes as a thruster. You can also ride it as a twin or a 2+1.

Glassing specs

EPS core covered in 4 x 4 oz glass on deck and 4 oz on bottom.

Rail type

Full rail using a thermoform material to give the best rail shape and bond.



The vee throughout the board from nose to tail with added double concave through the fins helps it rock from rail to rail and retain its manoeuvrability. The plan shape holds a generous distribution of volume throughout.

    FUN! FUN! FUN!

    Fun and awesome board! Currently using it as I progress down in liters and length from a longboard. Able to duck dive and paddle good. Been able to catch some waves shoulder high with a bit of a face. Also my first foray using a twinnie!

    I would highly recommend this board for everyone! Especially if you’re a surfer dad, and you want to take your kids surfing. This board works insanely well! I’ve taken it out even on a head high day, and it did not disappoint. The board is very well made. I’ve been loving this board and my kids love it too!

    I like it.

    Fast and well-informed shipping service. Board came in good condition and was well packed.

    Still waiting to take it out on a good day to see how it performs. It paddles well.

    Don't sleep on the big baron softtop!

    Okay, this is not a soft top you're imagining. Think basically a hard top with a grip deck. The board is basically the same as a "real" board with it's rails and concaves. The board rides incredibly. You would not believe that it's a soft top while riding it. I loved it so much I bought two. One 6'4 and one 7'0. I always get compliments on the JS boards and everyone's surprised when they touch it because it's like a "real board". I love these boards and I highly recommend it for all types of surfers.
