  • Made in USA
    • We manufacture our boards at the Marko Foam factory in Salt Lake City, Utah and have a distribution point in Huntington Beach, California. This allows us to have full control over our boards and guarantee they are made with the highest quality materials.


  • Made with 100% Recyclable Materials
    • We make our boards in a sustainable way with recyclable materials. If you’d like to learn more please check out our Board Recycling Loyalty Program.


  • Durable, Waterproof and Flexible Foam (no resin needed)
    • Our boards are made as a solid piece of copolymer foam that is completely waterproof. This makes for a very durable board that if dinged won’t absorb water and is nearly impossible to break!


  • Molded Stringer System 
    • Our stringer system is custom made for each board out of the same wood used in surfboards. They are molded into the board to add stiffness and strength while helping increase the performance!


  • Wax-Free Deck Pad 
    • Our EVA deckpad has small grooves making for a slip free surface making wax unnecessary. This allows you to keep your board in the car or sun without a need to worry about the mess of melting wax.


  • Futures Fins Included 
    • Formula Fun teamed up with one of the leaders in surf fin technology, Futures Fins, to make a fin box that would work perfectly for our boards. Having the ability to use Futures Fins in our boards is one of the main things that sets us apart from other foam board companies and brings a whole new aspect of performance to this type of product!

Buy this board!

I’ve surfed for 35 years, had tons of boards and this one is in a class of its own. The construction is awesome and I can’t wait until they come out with some more models. I’ve got the 5’3”, plenty of buoyancy for me 5’9” 195lb, above average surfer. I’ve ridden it in knee high surf and head high surf. Had a blast in both conditions. My daily driver is a 5’10” flyer 2 and the last two times out I’ve picked this over the flyer because it’s not such a serious board. Long story short, I’m having lore fun on this in the same waves.. Go get one.

Love the board, picked up some small fun waves ; rides great only issue I had- it is so slippery I missed a bunch of waves due to it sliding around .. I’m hoping it has a lot to do with the wetsuit ? Any suggestions? I don’t want to put wax on the board... I’m surfing in NY 40degree water temps and full 5/4 suit

Hi Jacel, Thank you very much for the review! That is the first time that I've heard of the board being called slippery. Are you referring to the pad or the board itself? Let us know how we can help!

Proud Bag with a Story

My son loves the board and its easy for him to carry and get up on. I'm a big bigger and even I can pop up on the board — formula fun lives up to its name. First day out people in the water asked about it. Beyond that the 100% recycled is a story most boards can't claim.

Good back up or small day board

Great board to keep in your car, no wax needed. Really fun in 2-4ft waves, easy to get into the wave because of the volume, but still pretty loose and turns well. It’s more volume than my other boards so I had to get used to pushing it under when duck diving. Overall a good addition to your quiver.

Honestly the most fun board I’ve ever ridden. Definitely carves the best out of any foam board I’ve been on. If you move up towards the front of the board it has enough volume to keep you in any wave and if you pop back on the board the fish makes it super nimble and playful. I even took this thing wake surfing behind a boat the other day and it absolutely ripped. The beginners had a lot of fun since it was so floaty. Perfect beginner board and also super fun to rip if your advanced/intermediate.
