4 Things to Look for When Buying a Surfboard Bag

Surfboards need protection. Even though they seem indestructible while you're riding waves, on dry land (especially when traveling), they are prone to damage just like anything made from fiberglass. 
For this reason, anyone with a surfboard needs a surfboard bag to keep their investment safe when they are on the go.

To help you out, here are four things to look for when you are buying a surfboard bag of your own.

1. Will it fit. Because when you think about it, not every surfboard is the same size. So when you are researching which bag works best for you, measure what you have, and then compare it to the bag you are looking at. You want snug and precise. Never settle for a bag that is an ill-fit. You'll quickly regret it.

2. Include your fins in the measurement, something that might seem obvious, but people sometimes forget when making a purchase. Plus, consider what type of fins you have and how they'll work with the bag. Different setups need different bags for proper protection.

3. Does the quality suit the money that you are shelling out for it? That is, how's the padding? Buying it online? Read reviews to get a sense of the material it's made of. Will the zipper stand up to abuse? A good quality zipper can make or break a surfboard bag. 

4. Do you prefer wheels or would you rather have a wheel-less version? Ask yourself how far you'll be toting it to the beach, and if you'll need assistance when doing so. Then consider how many of your friends are going to ask you to piggyback on your wheelie surfboard bag, and if you want to help them, and purchase based off of that. 

If you surf, you need a surfboard bag. It's really not an option if you want to protect your board. For more information on how we can help you, please don't hesitate to contact us any time.
