This basic mini-longboard lets you ride for a fraction of the cost of most others. At seven feet six inches, the Funboard is long enough to catch waves easily, and its near-23-inch width makes for a stable platform that helps novices find their balance. It fends off dings well, too, thanks to the durable EPS foam and epoxy skin. I had a blast surfing it longboard style in shin-to-waist-high surf, but it also handled overhead waves in Costa Rica. Bottom line: It's the perfect stick for weekend warriors and a fine beater board on lackluster days.

Bonus: Includes a leash and traction pad.

Bummer: At more than 17 pounds, it's a load. 6'8"–7'10"; www.newsurfproject.com
