The Paulownia Baby Log allows us to appreciate the early days of surfing. We use a Premium EPS core and Paulownia wood which offers the lightest to strongest ratio wood species in the world! Even better its the fastest growing species of hardwood trees.
The Baby Log is our most sought after beginner longboard. The name Baby Log is reminiscent of the first days of surfing – it’s an extremely buoyant longboard and easy to catch waves with but we got rid of all the weight of those early day “logs”. The Baby Log is Epoxy and built to get you on every wave- 1 to 8 ft. It’s design is made to be forgiving and provide tons of float. This board is light under your feet and responsive to whatever you’re willing to try. Soft rails, gentle rocker and two extra fins that act as “training wheels” really aid in this board being so user friendly. We designed this board to be durable yet affordable for surfers who just want to get in the water. We strongly suggest this board for new surfers or surfers transitioning from a foamy who are ready for more performance. The Baby Log got its name from A combination of two things. The baby logger head sea turtles born on Florida Beaches and the history of longboards commonly referred to as ‘’logs’’.

Fins for The Baby Log: We suggest pairing The Baby Log with our budget friendly composite fins OR any other 2+1 Set up. If you want your board to be “loose” or you have a more aggressive surfing style than the two side fins are not necessary. The two side fins offer additional stability, think of them as “training wheels” – Not necessary but helpful for beginners.
Sizing the center Fin for your Baby Log should be as follows:
- 8’0 Baby log = 8″ to 9″
- 8’6″ Baby Log = 9″
- Larger center fin = More stability
