Surfboard looks cheap, wouldn't stand up, only for indoor use as slightest wind will blow it down. Super cheap. Waste of money
I ordered 2 of these surfboards for my sons 2nd bday. One of them worked fine, as in standing up, but looks very cheap. Note: these wont stand alone outside, as they are very flimsy and will blow away. We kept this inside -for our outdoor ocean view surf party.The other board (identical) was bent and wouldn't even stand up. We just taped this to the wall. It was waste of money. I ended up actually renting real surfboards and stands. Total waste of money.

Great photo prop!
The surfboard's stand on the back of standup was bent so the cardboard notches would not lock into place. We were able to fix this by placing the support braces on the stand and used a lot of duct tape. OT issued a merchandise certificate for future use.

It is cardboard, so can be damaged easily, but it works!
Was slightly damaged in shipment (feet bent a bit). But it works as designed. Adhesive for stability pieces (two small strips of wood to go across cardboard folds) was long dried out, but Oriental Trading did supply extra tape! Stood up nicely, without need for weights, etc.

This surfboard was sturdy and and super cute. I used it as a prop for a photo op area at my son's surfing party. Very happy with it.

Try somewhere else
The surfboard had not been boxed properly and the top portion was creased such that it would not stay up. The "adhesive" on the wooden supports were not adhesive at all. We ended up having to lean it against a wall. Do not buy this.

A bit flimsy
Nice colors and size, but the cardboard back that allows it to stand up had come loose from the back and therefore I needed to rig my own way to make it stand up. It is creased in the middle in order to fold in half and mail, and that prevents it from standing real upright as is shown in picture. If you don't mind the flimsyness, it's OK.

Purchased for a Surf's Up dinner dance party. It is cute and colorful, but not extremely sturdy. I needed to add some extra support so it wouldn't fall over and the top wouldn't droop down. This item works best for an indoor location. If you need it outdoors it will probably tip over if it's windy or on an uneven surface. Overall I was pleased with the purchase.
