Surfing 101: The In's and Out's of Choosing a Surfboard Bag

A well cared for surfboard is a well protected surfboard. Simply put, leaving your board uncovered while in storage or during your travels can lead to unnecessary dents and scratches. Whether it's an accidental fall or an unfortunate collision, your surfboard needs a barrier placed between it and the unforgiving hazards it faces while out of the water. Luckily, placing your board in a surfboard bag can keep it safe and save you money on needless repairs.

The Board Sock
Although, it only offers a thin layer of protection, a board sock is a cost-effective choice. Not only can a sock stop annoying nicks and scratches from marring your surfboard, but it can also shield your board from the damaging effects of the sun. However, if your travels are bit more frequent or you plan on leaving your board outside for a prolonged amount of time, you may want to invest in a more durable board bag.

The Day Bag
Sturdier than a board sock, the day bag is the perfect selection for the more serious surfer. While not necessarily built to withstand harsher environments, such as the rough and tumble life of long distance travel, the day bag is excellent for transporting your board to and from the beaches in your area. The extra protection provided by the bag's foam padding ensures your surfboard won't feel those extra bumpy moments on the road.

The Travel Bag
If long distance travel is your thing, a surfboard travel bag is a must. Unfortunately, without the right type of bag a plane ride can turn into a disaster for you and your board. The increased padding in a travel bag combined with the extra space for one or two more boards allows you to travel stress free and with less luggage. While the price for one of these bags is higher, the protection and piece of mind they provide is well worth the investment.
