A Guide to the Different Types of Surfboard Bags

You have a lot invested in your surfboard, so it only makes sense that you will want to protect it with the right surfboard bag. With so many choices, finding the ideal one is often more difficult than it sounds, which is why we would like to offer the following guidelines.

Need only basic protection? If so, a surfboard sock might be just what you are looking for. This type of bag typically contains padding only in the nose, and fits your board snugly to protect it from dings, scratches, and sun damage.

If your board is often hauled on top of your car, you might need more protection than a sock would provide. In that case, we recommend a day surfboard bag, which has significantly more padding along with extra features such as outside pockets and a carrying strap. Some even contain reflective material to help keep your board cool when it is outside for any extended period.

Travel bags are a must if you plan to fly with your surfboard or carry it very long distances. This type of bag normally contains additional room for a wet suit, board shorts, wax, and other necessities. It also provides more padding than what you would normally find in a day bag, so you won’t have to worry about luggage handlers treating your surfboard roughly. You may also want a travel bag when hauling your board on top of your car over very rough terrain.

Many surfers purchase different bags for use on different occasions, as there is no one perfect choice that is right for everyone. To find the ideal surfboard bag, please contact us.
