Cheap Thrills

(You save $100.00)

Product Description

The 2016 Waterborn Cheap Thrills is a wave-shredding machine and is the perfect board to surf in less than perfect conditions. The Cheap Thrills wide outline allows for stability and control to glide through the fatter waves. One of the fastest boards you will ever surf, this board packs a lot of punch. 

The Cheap Thrills board is ideal for beginners but won’t disappoint even the most experienced surfers. A retro board at heart, this hybrid has a 5 fin configuration which allows the rider to change between a thruster and quad, depending on the conditions. Quite simply, these flighty, fun, fast and robust boards are one of the most satisfying boards you will ever surf. With such a low price it’s a perfect entry level board or the ultimate addition to any quiver.

  1. Fair priced fun board

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Jul 2017

    I'm 6'1 and 88 kg and have surfed on and off since I was young and done a lot of skateboarding. Wanted a cheap fun board for skate style surfing so I got the 5'6 board.was a little worried it would be hard to paddle and not float me good but it paddle fine and has a rad super loose feel to it

  2. Magic board in crap waves

    Posted by Morgan Caldwell on 27th Apr 2017

    I'm 55, weigh 82kg and bought a 5'8". It is ridiculously loose and fun in waves from knee high to shoulder high. After a few surfs and trying out different fins I found it's great with the bigger FCS Q-PC7 Quad Set. Very fast, loose and fun. My new go to board.


  3. Fully stoked

    Over the moon with this board and the extras package, for a 46 year old returning to the surf after a 10 year break this board is brilliant, nice and buoyant for paddling but still easy to duck dive. I feel this is a board that will help me fall back in love with surfing.
    Many thanks to the guys at The Surfboard warehouse, great service, great communication, great prices and top products.

  4. Awesome value and fun

    Posted by ERF on 16th Jan 2017

    Bought 6'2 version and was a bit concerned I may not be able to stand (47 to female, 177cm, 72kg coming off a 7'6 fun board). Having a blast! Easy paddle and can stand (change my technique though). Arrived super quick, excellent value under $500 for complete package.

  5. I love this board!

  7. super fun coming off 7s superfish

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Dec 2016

    was a bit worried coming off a 7'3 superfish to a 6'2 cheap thrills but it has been great. at 90 kegs and beginner it has been just as easy and easier to turn. very happy had it out 6-7 sessions now

  9. Cheap Thrills Review

    Posted by Longboardsurfcoach on 11th Nov 2016

    6'2" Cheap Thrills is a great option for a surfer being over 50 and a touch over 90kg, easy to paddle easy to surf on even in small surf,. Prefer it as a quad, tried as both a tri fin and a quad, with its wide tail!

  10. Good products

    Posted by Hailey on 19th Oct 2016
