Product Description

The AQSS Fountain of Youth offers the perfect combination of paddle power and manoeuvrability.

This board is an all-time favourite amongst our customers and staff; due to its wider outline yet refined tail section. Due to these design elements the Fountain of Youth has all the characteristics of a performance longboard but in micro form. It paddles much like a longboard with the added advantage of being able to be thrown around like a shortboard.

Much like a long board; the Fountain of Youth offers sturdy construction by utilising two 6 ounce layers of glass on the deck, an additional deck patch and another two 4 ounce layers on the bottom of the board.

The perfect mini nose rider, 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 its refined pin tail. Add to that a 4 + 1 fin configuration allows many fin options, each option creating a new feeling of speed, power and flow. 

If versatility is your thing then check out the performance and featured packed Fountain of Youth.

Best suited for Beginners to Experienced users who want a flat, fast and extremely versatile funboard

  1. such a fun board, im loving it.

    Posted by niki barr on 14th Jul 2018

    Was looking for a minimal to add to my quiver for those small lazy summer days, and I've found it. The fountain of youth paddle's like a long board, slips nice and easy into the wave, yet handles like a short board. I have been riding it with the fin supplied, (just single fin) and its hanging loose like the old single fin I used to have back in those older days.
    I weigh 60kgs and the 6'6" just handles perfect. I'm an intermediate surfer.

  2. Does what it says

    Posted by Phil on 28th Mar 2018

    Purchased 6': I'm 6'1" & 80kgs, intermediate surfer (VIC). I typically ride 6'5" quad, 6' 4" fish, 9'6" log or 7'6" mini mal. I wanted a board that would fit between my fish & mini mal. Something that paddles easily, gets into flat / full waves / smaller waves / duck dives easily yet still delivers some performance. After 4 surfs in waves 2' - 4' feet (messy to glassy conditions) I am happy to report 6' Fountain Of Youth does all of these for me.
    I have ridden only as a quad (futures fins) and so far happy with its straight down the line speed & looseness. Looking forward to trying some other fin combos. Finish of the board is very good. I was nearly tempted to go the 5'10" model however I am happy with this one for the extra paddle ability.

  3. Goes like a rocket and holds a great line

    Posted by Matt McCourt on 26th Mar 2018

    I've been surfing since I was 5 years old however I've been out of the water the past 12 months so I wanted something that will get my sea legs back without making a complete kook of myself. The Fountain of Youth holds good lines, paddles very easily in to waves and albeit slightly a little heavier than expected with a flat rocker this was not noticeable when paddling in to waves. Awesome all rounder and love it! Shipping came in 2 days from purchase to Bondi Beach. Just make sure you're home for delivery otherwise you're out to LIVERPOOL for the depot...Forget about it!
    Overall awesome board, great customer service and fast delivery with no worries!

    You can paddle this board onto ripples and it goes like a rocket on the face. Super fun board for those progressing from a beginner board to those of us who want something different in the quiver!

  5. Awesome Board, Loads of Fun.

    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)

  6. 2017 Fountain of Youth

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Nov 2016

    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.

  7. Fun board!

    Posted by Michael on 23rd Oct 2016

    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!
