Why a Used Surfboard is a Smart Buy For New and Experienced Surfers

Surfing isn't a cheap sport. A surfboard alone can cost you a good chunk of money. Luckily, purchasing a quality board doesn't have to destroy your monthly budget. Whether you're new to surfing or you're looking to replace your current board, buying a used surfboard is a great option that will save you of money at the end of the day.

Why New Surfers Should Stick With A Used Surfboard
  • As a new surfer it's easy to get caught up in the glitz and glam of purchasing a fancy new surfboard, however, spending that much money on a board at the beginning of your surfing journey is never a good idea. For one, as you learn to surf, your board is bound to take a serious beating. Buying a used board will make those dings and dents a little less agonizing.
  • Your first surfboard should be a soft surfboard. Unfortunately, a new surfer that is serious about the sport usually outgrows their soft board within a few months. Buying a used board to begin with makes the need to replace your soft board a little bit easier to swallow.
Why An Experienced Surfer Should Purchase A Used Surfboard
  • Obviously budget plays a huge part in whether or not an experienced surfer will choose to buy a new or used surfboard. If your money is a bit tight at the moment and you're looking to save a little cash, has an excellent selection of used surfboards.
  • If you're looking to add a backup surfboard to your arsenal of surfing equipment, a used board is a smart choice. Backup boards come in handy when your main board is out of commission, and you don't have the time or money to fix it before getting back in the water.
Whether you're on a mission to get your first surfboard or you're looking for a backup board, please contact us today to view our large selection of used and new surfboards.

Making Surfboards Safer From Sharks

As a surfer, you have a healthy fear and respect of sharks. Although hopefully you never have a run-in with one during your life as a surfer, it can't hurt to be aware of ways to make yourself safer and protect against attacks. This year, surfboard brand Rusty is working with Shark Mitigation Systems to produce a line of surfboards with patterns that deter shark bites.

According to an article by Stuart McKinnon in The West Australian, Rusty and SMS are teaming up to create surfboards and wetsuits with patterns that distract sharks and will hopefully reduce the risk of shark attacks. The line will be sold in Australia and New Zealand, but will hopefully expand to Rusty's international line in the near future. 

SMS has been working with researchers from the University of Western Australia to find patterns that seem unpalatable to sharks, maybe potentially dangerous for them to eat. The article shows a photograph of a surfer with a black and white stripped surfboard and wetsuit. SMS also uses this design on dive tanks, diving fins, kayaks, and other marine equipment to make working and playing in the ocean safer.

They are also bringing a smart buoy to the market that can detect shark-like movement and gives a warning to people using the beach. While shark attacks are devastating, hopefully SMS' continual attention to technology can prevent more of these attacks in the future.
