Which Surfboard Should You Hire?

Renting a surfboard can be daunting with all the choices, shapes and sizes, and the various Noosa breaks. Here’s a simple guide that’ll get you started.


    • The stand up paddle board is a perfect way to cruise around especially on flatter days when the waves are not happening.
    • Most of the SUPS we have are for smaller conditions and cruising rather than surfing in bigger waves .
    • There are many SUP riders out there that have definitely mastered the art ,and can surf on virtually anything extremely well.
    • They can paddle into waves a lot quicker than regular surfboard riders.
    • We generally recommend using the SUP option only in smaller conditions ,unless you are very experienced.


    • Longboards are the ‘go to” Surfboards for around the points breaks.
    • Suitable for all standards of surfing.
    • Best in waves small to Medium.
    • Plenty of stability and buoyancy and they are wave catching machines!


    • Shortboards are usually the domain of the more experienced surfer.
    • They are less buoyant and highly manoeuvrable, so you need to have had a enough time on the water to get the best out of them.
    • They really get going when the wave height is medium to big.


    • Foam boards are a great all-round starter board.
    • Perfect for beginners getting the handle of what goes out in there in the waves.
    • Being Foam they are very buoyant and reasonably stable and if you fall off and the board hits you it’s a lot less forgiving than a regular board!
    • Most learners start on a FOAMIE for that reason.
    • BTW there is also a lot of very experienced surfers that love to take out a Foamie on a smaller day and just have fun.
    • Suitable for all levels and small to medium sized waves


    • We have a great range of Bodyboards suitable for kids and adults alike.
    • This is where, for most ,the first thrill of riding a wave kicked in.
    • Once you get hooked on that thrill its hard to ignore it!
    • We recommend staying between the flags and only venturing in in smaller conditions.
    • Let’s have fun and not sign up for a survival mission
    • Suitable for just about everyone who is a reasonably competent swimmer.

Noosa’s Iconic Surf Hire

We’re a surf brand who honours the nostalgia of retro vibes, classic times and enjoying life for what it really is. Find us at the Golden Breed round-a-bout on Nooa Drive, Noosa Heads - You can’t miss us.

Bringing your board back is easy being just a few footsteps from Noosa’s main beach. We’ll organise eveything you need. Starting by prepping your boards with wax, we'll find the right leggy for you, suggest a rash guard, and recommend the right spot for your skill level and the waves on the day.

Where To Surf In Noosa

As a beginner, you can try your luck at Noosa main beach, but usually, there's a better wave if you walk north for 5 minutes and head towards the Noosa river mouth. It all depends on the swell direction and wind conditions, so if does look a little choppy, turn towards the national park from main beach and the first bay you'll find is called Little Cove. Another great spot for beginners. There are plenty of surf beaches here, but it's best to always get surf lessons if you're inexperienced. A learn to surf, surf school can show you the basics while keeping you safe. The surf schools are usually located by the river mouth and you can access them by car via Noosa Woods.

    I recently had the pleasure of renting a surfboard from Golden Breed, and I have to say that I was thoroughly impressed with their service. From the moment I walked into their shop, I was greeted with warm and friendly staff who were eager to help me find the perfect surfboard for my needs.

FAQs - Bodyboard & Surfboard Hire

Our commonly asked questions when people hire boards from us.
Do I need to be an experienced surfer to hire a surfboard?
It's recommended that you have some experience surfing before hiring a fibreglass surfboard, but we also rent beginner boards - Foamies which are soft, and a lot safer for people still finding their feet.
Can I hire a surfboard without a wetsuit?
In Noosa, you don't need a wetty, unless you're surfing in the winter months. Ideally, you'd have a rashie to protect yourself from chaffing, and the sun. Ask our staff, and we'll give you options.
Can I hire a surfboard for multiple days?
100%. Ask our staff, and they'll let you know your options and pricing.
How do I transport the surfboard to the beach?
We're within walking distance to the river mouth, Little Cove, Nationals, and Tea Tree. Otherwise, if you want to hit the opens - Dog Beach, Sunshine Beach, Castaways or Peregian, it's best to have surf racks, and a purpose made surf tie-down. Better yet, if you've got a van, load them in carefully so they're secure and won't get damaged while traveling.
Can I hire a surfboard for a child?
Yes, we rent body boards, and surfboards for kiddos. It's best to check availability with our Noosa staff.
What happens if I return the surfboard late?
We sometimes charge a fee for late returns, but this depends on how late you return it and how busy Noosa is. We're reasonably relaxed, but it's best to expect that you'll get an additional charge.
How do I choose the right size surfboard for me?
The size of the board depends on your weight, height, and skill level. You can ask our staff for advice on which size would be best for you.
How much does it cost to hire a surfboard?
Have a look at our pricing schedule on this page, you'll find pricing for surfboards, body boards and stand up paddle boards.
Does Golden Breed provide surf wax when hiring a board?
Yes, we wax your weapon, rail to rail, prior to you heading out, but it's always a good idea to bring your own, or buy some, just in case.
What do I do if the surfboard gets damaged while I'm using it?
You should contact us immediately if the surfboard gets damaged while you're using it. Do not take it back in the water, this will further damage it. We will advise you on what to do next.
How do I know if the surfboard is in good condition?
It's always good practice to inspect the surfboard for any cracks or damage before hiring it. Or even take photos.
Where are the best surfing spots in Noosa?
This depends on the conditions, but spots that people commonly surf are the river mouth, accessible from Hastings Street, First Point, Little Cove, Nationals, Tea Tree and Granite are accessible from the Noosa national park carpark. If the points aren't working, try the opens at Dog Beach, Sunshine Beach, Castaways Peregian or Coolum which require you to rack up and a short drive.
