2 Simple Care Tips to Help You Preserve The Life of Your Surfboard

When you have a surfboard that you love, you want to keep it as long as you possibly can. And though every tangible item will eventually need to be discarded and replaced, there is no reason why you couldn't have your surfboard for many years. If you want to get the most out of your investment, take advantage of these two simple cleaning and care tips to help you preserve the life of your surfboard. 
  1. Be Mindful of Where Your Board is When You Aren't Using it: When you aren't riding the waves, where is your surfboard? One of the easiest ways that you can ensure your board will last you longer is by being aware of what you are doing with it when you aren't riding waves. For example, if you are changing your wet suit and haven't bagged your board yet, don't set it up against your car. This puts it at risk for falling or getting bumped around by a strong gust of wind. Instead, bag your board as soon as you are done using it, or at the very least, lay it on the ground instead of standing upright.
  2. Keep Up With General Maintenance: When you notice a small problem with your board, get it repaired right away. If you put something off or ignore it, that small problem could turn into a huge, expensive repair. Or worse, you might have to chuck your bag altogether. Instead of this, when you notice dings in your board, take it to the repair shop right away to make it as good as new again.
