A little more details about this board 

Have a blast and perform as a pro-surfer. The Alpha dog 5'8 is the perfect board for your first steps in shortboarding. And even better, also for your third, fourth and fifith step. The outline of the shape encourages energetic surfing. Go and enjoy trying to throw down some of your big moves. Different to his smaller brother (the 5'6) it's slimmer in outline which matches a little better waves with more size. Also a longer rail makes this board perform better and more stable in bigger conditions. Actually a soft board that rides and performs as your classic shortboard but with a lot more forgiveness. A little word of friendly advice though, this board is radder than the raddest surfers out there.

5 fin setup

This is for sure the cherry on the cake. With 5 futures finboxes you always have all options when it comes down to fin positioning in different types of waves. A quad setup, 2fins on each side, for more speed and looser for maneuvers. A thruster setup, 2 side fins + 1 center fin, for more carving and grip when doing bottom turns. The choice for a certain fin setup can be very personal and is depending a lot on the personal preferences of the surfer. But don't be bothered, you have all options!

More info

The top of the board, our soft skin IXPE, is always groovy :) Like a lizard skin, the eco-friendly IXPE material has a nice and deep texture that provides heaps of grip. Do I need to wax my board? Yes and no :) Basically, you don’t need to wax your Softdog but when you want to ride it a bit more radical… a little extra wax is your dog’s best friend! Waxing is also a form of meditation and a cool thing to do. When you surf with booties on your paws, wax becomes less important. Removing wax from your board is also very easy. Just use a friendly detergent like ‘Ecover’ and you can rub the wax right off your board.


Quality meets durability! First of all: ALL Softdog constructions are 100% sealed! This seems like a no-brainer for us, but this is not the case for many softie surfboard brands out there. 100% sealed means a higher quality of surfing and a longer lifespan for your Softdog surfboard. It packs a high-density EPS core wrapped in an eco-friendly IXPE grippy lizard topskin. In between you can find a range of components to make your board stiffer and last longer. Also note the fantastic Flightweight R+ technology stringer on top of your core. This is all technical stuff but it’s good stuff! Softies are the future of no-nonsense surfing for all levels, topped off with an extra-large dose of fun!
