Product Description

Fountain of youth has been re-launched due to popular demand in our 2017 range. A favourite amongst our customers and staff, the Fountain Of Youth is a perfect combination of paddle power and manoeuvrability.

The perfect mini noserider, the Fountain of Youth is the ultimate fun board to add to your quiver. Perfect for down the line points and punchy beach breaks as this board turns on a dime due to the refined pin tail.

This board paddles like a longboard with the added advantage of throwing it around like a shortboard. 

A 4 + 1 fin configuration allows many fin configuration options, each option creating a new feeling of speed, power and flow.

  1. Awesome Board, Loads of Fun.

    Posted by Unknown on 28th Dec 2016

    So if like me you have had the tab open in your browser for a few weeks wondering if it is the right choice I say go. I had previously ridden a micro mal single fin and had a blast on a 7ft but was wanting something shorter for myself, so I ordered the 6'6 assuming that it would be ok for the smaller days but not so big as to be a pain to transport. This is to compliment my 6'0 shortboard which was struggling with the summer waves.
    It fits exactly that bill, I am 6'2 and about 85kg, board works a charm, it feels shorter than I was expecting and has great paddle power and plenty of foam for those smaller days, but, it performs much better in the good days than I was expecting, I have taken it out in head high and it takes of great, drives super well and turns ok. Main thing is, it is a ton of fun.
    The board build was much better than I was expecting and having it set up with only a single fin is giving that good mal feeling without all of the hassle of the length.
    So all in all, super pumped, works a treat in the Surf Coast areas style of waves and is fun as hell on those days where the shortboard would be frustrating due to a lack of size/power/push.
    So overall I recommend it highly, better quality than expected for the price and definitely a wave hog when the conditions are small and clean but also can step up to lightly larger 3ft and maybe 3ft+ (will test it when the surf comes back)

  2. 2017 Fountain of Youth

    Bought the 7.0 model (I'm 85kg) for really small days, but I've been surprised how versatile it is. Because of the extra volume have been having long rides on crumbly 1ft mush as well as nice fast 3-4ft faces where the pin-tail helps carve and the slightly cambered rails bite well. Favourite thing to do is take off from the direction of the breaking face of the wave and do a big fading turn back onto the glassy part of the wave. The fat nose really lets you use the total surface area of the board. It is definitely the one board I have in the car if I don't know what the surf is doing. I've been able to duck dive it rather than do the log roll. Can see the extra layer of glass in high-stress areas and have had no compression dings at all. The fin options of the board means I can change how it rides too. Increased wave count because of this board!
    Customer service always great. Arrived in NSW from QLD within 2 days. Packaging very thorough and no chance of the board copping any damage in transit.

  3. Fun board!

    I was sceptical about the performance of this board. I've ridden 9 foot performance mal for 15 years. I've tried getting back to shortboards a few times, but never enjoyed it. This board is truly a fountain of youth. I loved it from the first wave. Paddles surprisingly well for a 6 footer and catches any wave you look at. So much fun to literally throw around. I'm 50 years old, but I feel like I'm a teenager again. Don't delay, just get one!
