Product Description

The Gnaraloo Softshell Fatty is designed with extra width, thickness and overall volume making this surfboard extremely buoyant, stable and easy to ride. This is the ideal board for surf schools and first timers.

SKIN: Thick Polyethylene deck and a soft slick skin on the bottom is super durable, yet soft enough to keep beginners safe.

CORE: Expanded polystyrene core with thick dual plywood stringers provides a stiff, stable platform. While other softboards can over flex, our boards maintain rocker integrity so you can jump to your feet quickly and confidently ride waves.

CONSTRUCTION: Vacuum construction process eliminates hard or sharp surfaces, and prevents peeling or bubbling. Heavy-duty nose and tail bumper reinforced zones provide added durability for transportation and storage.

FEATURES: Convenient carry handle for easy mobility. Leash plug with HD internal reinforcements, FCS compatible fin boxes with HD internal reinforcements and flexible thruster fin set makes it quick and easy to hit the water.

The Gnaraloo Fatty comes in three key sizes and has a special rocker profile (the curve of the board) that’s designed so beginners can learn, progress and have endless fun on the waves.

Technical Information

Construction Softshell Construction

Boards with Soft Shell construction feature much more technology then the eye can see. They are a combination of materials designed to allow the board to perform to the highest levels given the constraints of the flexibility of the materials. All boards feature an integrated Fin System, 2 or 3 Wooden Stringers depending on the size of the board to ensure the board is stiff enough. A light weight EPS core combined with a PE foam layer on the deck and a High Density PE Slick that is mounted to a thin PE Foam layer on the bottom give the board an awesome feel in the water. Soft enough not to hurt should you fall on it but hard enough to handle the power of the waves.

    Muriwai Surf School, Auckland New Zealand August 28, 2018

    We have a huge range of softboards but the ones that the coaches go for first every time is the Gnaraloo fatty’s. These boards are so good for first time surfers that it makes the surf coaches job nice and easy which also means everyone comes in stoked. Not only are these boards nice and easy to ride but they have well and truly proven themselves to be strong and hardy in the large swell’s of New Zealand’s West Coast.. Well done GSI for making a product that lasts unlike many of the other brands we have tried.

    Surfed at NLand surf park in Austin for the past 2 days on my new 7’4” fatty. It’s all I had hoped for. I’m 5’10” and weigh 180lbs. Also, I’ve been surfing for 1 year (lifetime workout swimmer). I highly recommended this board to beginner/intermediate surfers where softie surf boards are required (or desired).

    Ok, so I’m not that fat, just a little bigger that I should be at 230lbs, and I really struggled with even paddling the 9′ Greco Eden. I decided to sell that and gave the Gnaraloo 9’2″ Fatty a try. Immediately I could tell the difference in paddling and the glide I could get when trying to catch a wave. I’m a total noob kook still but finally stood up on a green wave with this board. Thanks, Gnaraloo, great product!
