Great Use for Old Surfboards

There is nothing more disheartening than a broken surfboard.  If you use your surfboard for many years until you are ready for a new surfboard that's one thing, but if your surfboard is damaged after just a few months of use, it can be really frustrating.

If you are dreading throwing out your old, broken surfboard, we heard of a pretty great solution that we wanted to share with you.

The Gudauskas brothers are collecting used and broken surfboards through their organization, Positive Vibe Warriors.  They plan to fix up the boards and give them to children in Jamaica that are learning to surf. Children in Jamaica are really lacking in equipment due to high tariffs on imported goods and an extreme shortage of local surfboard shapers.
According to the article, "The Gudangs are Heading a Surfboard Drive" by Davis Jones, Tannery Guadauskas said,
"It’s recycling at its finest. With a board you’ve personally gotten all the joy from, and one that’s kind of reached its expiration, you get to recycle it now, and a little kid is going to feel that same joy."
We hope that they have huge success collecting and refurbishing surfboards. When the brothers go to deliver the surfboards to the youth of Jamaica they also plan on giving free surfing lessons as well as talking about ocean safety.

If you're ready to upgrade some of your surfing equipment, please contact us. We are proud to offer premium surfing apparel, equipment and accessories at discounted prices.

Boardshorts We Love for This Summer

Boardshorts are a very common style of swimwear, for both casual use, and for athletic needs, like for surfing. They got their origins from their use in surfing, but have spread to be widely popular for men, women, and children. Unlike other swimwear for men, generally boardshorts do not have an elastic waistband, but instead have a velcro fly and a lace-up tie to make sure they don't fall off when a surfer gets hit by a wave. Another fun fact about boardshorts: they are often called "boardies" in Australia, and "baggies" in South Africa. 

Whether you are looking for boardshorts for surfing, or for casual swimwear, at, we have lots of styles and brands to choose from. One of our favorites for women this summer are our Hurley Supersuede Printed Beachrider Boardshorts. They have an orange palm print and a 2.5" inseam. These are cute for throwing on over swimsuit bottoms to leave the pool, or to wear instead of swimsuit bottoms, although more for casual swimwear, not for surfing.

For men, we love the Dakine O.G. Boardshorts in Rasta print. You are sure to have a different look than your friends and have a bathing suit that stands out with these boardshorts. They have a Hawaiian flag print in Rasta colors, overlaid with palm trees. These boardshorts are perfect for surfing because they have minimal stitching that causes rashes.

Lastly, for children's styles, check out the Billabong Boy's Flux Boardshorts. Eye-catching and stylish, these boardshorts are perfect for a summer of fun at the pool or beach.

To see our full collection of boardshorts, contact us at We have a wide selection of boardshorts for men, women, and children, and we can provide for all of your other surfing needs as well.

3 Tips to Make your Surfboard Last

If you're an avid surfer, you know that your board can quickly take a beating. If you want to avoid buying a new board every season, you caring for your board after every session. Not only will you get more out of it time and again, but careful and quick repairs will allow you to sell your used surfboard at a higher price. Here are 3 ways to maintain your surfboard for performance and longevity.

1. Store it properly.
Whether your board has been put away for a season or you're traveling with it nonstop, you should keep your board in a safe place or in a surfboard bag. Since boards are the most fragile out of the water, it's important to make sure that your traveling isn't putting your board at risk. A surfboard bag will protect your board from sunlight, scratches, and dings as it leans against a wall in your garage or sits in your car.

2. Practice better care on the waves.
While your board is made for the water, there are ways you can actually be doing more harm to your board while having fun at the beach. For example, it's never good to run your board right into the beach, as your fins can wear down quickly or break when run into the sand. In addition, wearing a surfboard leash will help make sure that your board does not float away and end up rocking against rocks, or hurting another surfer or beach goer. By controlling your board while you're out surfing, you'll not only have more surf time but keep your board safe. 

3. Fix dings as soon as possible.
If your board does get damaged, it's important to fix it as soon as you can. This is especially important for boards made of EPS/epoxy, which will soak up the corrosive saltwater and corrode the inside foam of the board. You'll want to rinse out your entire board with fresh water and then let it dry before you use your ding repairing kit.

Overall, keeping your board in good shape will allow you to enjoy it for longer. To learn more about how to care for your board, contact us.

Ultimate Spring Break Packing List For Surfing

As spring approaches, many of us are looking to hit up our spring break surfing destinations. Whether it's Hawaii or California, Florida or Australia, it pays to be prepared for your trip. Here are some tips for packing your surf gear without going overboard.

Extra boardshorts: You'll want at least 3 pairs of boardshorts to pack as it will be easier to rotate into cleaner ones. This way, you can wear a pair of boardshorts, throw one in the wash, and still have an extra one on hand for a second surf session.

Cold weather gear: You'll want to be prepared, especially when nights chill off or an unexpected cold front comes along. Packing one hoodie and a pair of pants for night activities will help you stay warm, whether you're on the beach on in-town. If it typically rains in your location, it can be helpful to plan ahead and pack a light rain jacket or windbreaker shell, which will help keep you dry. 

Surfboard bag: If you will be getting on a flight for your trip, it's best to invest in a surfboard bag now than later. Not only will it protect your board in-transit, but it can help you carry everything you need as you cruise from one spot to the next.

Warm water wax: You will likely enter warmer waters, so make sure that your board--especially if it's been used during the winter--is prepped with warm water wax. If you're traveling, clear off all the old wax first, then reapply new wax at your destination; it's less messy that way.  

Surf leashes: Having an extra surf leash can come in handy when you hit rough waves and your old leash snaps. Not only will it protect you, but it can help avoid injury to others.
Towel (optional): If you're trying to pack light, you don't really need to bring your own towel. You're likely to have one at your hotel to borrow, or can get one for cheap at your destination. But if you have space in your bag, an extra towel can go a long way.

With your bags all packed with these essential items, you're ready to hit the warmer waves this spring. To get your gear in line, contact us.
