Beginners Surfboard – Investing More Now Means Saving Extra Later

The debate in regards to a beginners surfboard is still going on. Group ONE feels that a beginners surfboard should be REALLY cheap due to the tendencies of brand new surfers and how they REGULARLY tear apart their boards. Group TWO thinks that your first board should be exceptionally durable (and quite often, expensive) so that it may endure the pounding that it is likely to receive. They propose that spending cash on brand new, “low cost” boards each month is idiotic. What group is right?

To be perfectly honest, it’s more about your preferences and your budget than anything else. Choosing a extremely resilient beginners surfboard, which only costs a bit more, isn’t really a bad idea — and do not let any person tell you otherwise. After all, provided you can afford it, why not choose a board which is extra resilient to scratches & dings?

Then again, if you’re strapped for cash and have that sixth-sense feeling that you are going to end up wiping out again and again (which isn’t too much of a stretch), then don’t feel pressured into shelling out $700 on a new beginners surfboard. Just throw down a few hundred, get yourself a simple board, and then paddle out to those waves.

Will this low cost sort of surf board need to be replaced down the road? Well, yeah, naturally you’ll have to purchase a replacement later. BUT don’t you think this is a wiser option than simply waiting around & trying to save up for some outrageously expensive board? Most surfers would prefer to surf using a low quality board NOW than wait who knows how long and surf with an high-priced board LATER.

Things To Consider Whenever Choosing A Beginner Surfboard…

Your Friend, The Soft Surfboard.
As the name implies, these are “soft” — which is the perfect choice for a beginners surfboard. Softboards are available in local surf shops as well as on online surfboard websites. With the growing number of online surfboard shops sprouting up — and their continuing pricing wars — it’s usually smarter to buy surfboards online rather than locally. Seriously, what is better than learning how to surf without having to worry so much about becoming injured or having an accident?

Narrow Boards Are Your Enemy.
Yeah, Yeah, the cool guys & gals got those narrow, sleek looking boards that make everyone’s jaw drop – I know. It may break your heart to learn this, yet it has to be said anyway: you aren’t YET a super cool surfer dude. If you truly want to make a go at being a GREAT surfer, then you have to start with those BIG, SUPER THICK surfboards. It will help to give you maximum buoyancy as well as help make paddling considerably easier.

When considering the basic principles of surfing, I’d rather do things properly (with a enormous board) and look silly than do things incorrectly (small, narrow board) and look “cool”. And really, how cool are you going to look if you wipe out over & over & over again?

Your Boards Shape, It Doesn’t Actually Matter.
As of this moment, you do NOT, I repeat DO NOT, need to be worried about tail shape, and the same goes for the amount of fins on your board. Right now, all you need to be doing is learning how to surf correctly and without a huge amount of difficulty. You don’t need to confuse yourself with these “extras” — at least not for the first few weeks.
