Summer is the perfect time to get out your seasonal gear and head to the beach. The temperatures are warm, the water is comfortable, and the weekend crowds often make for a great social experience. You may have gotten plenty of use from your surfboard this summer, but you might want something new. It may cross your mind to wait until next spring or summer to start looking for another board. But, you will find that fall and winter are perfect times to begin shopping for used surfboards for a number of reasons.
Clearing Out Room for the Holidays
As the holidays get closer, a lot of things change for individuals and families. If someone is picking up more holiday decorations and running out of room to store these items, they may start a purge. This might include selling a surfboard that has been sitting around inside their garage for a while. Another scenario is a person running out of room after receiving Christmas gifts and taking advantage of holiday sales.
Selling for Financial Reasons
People may also want to sell their surfboard because they want to get some extra money for Christmas shopping. No longer having a passion for surfing can make it easy for people to list their board for sale.
When you start looking around at surfboards during this time, you are not going to run into much competition because most people make these purchases when surfing time is prime. So, even though the selection may not be the largest, you will not have to worry about sending out immediate offers.
