Choosing Your Surfboard
Whether you are a beginner or an expert there are certain things you need to consider when you buy a surfboard. Not all surfboards suit everyone. Unless you have the right one for you, your surfing could get affected. Let us see some points to see when we buy a surfboard.
Surfboards are made differently for different surfing abilities. When you are a beginner you will want something big and with volume so that you can catch the waves easily. But when you are advanced a little you need a surfboard that will help you in better maneuverability. You will need a smaller size as you progress so that you can duck, dive and turn. When you become more advanced you may have to go to different boards for different kinds of waves.
You have to consider the kind of waves that you will ride. Whether they are peeling point breaks or beach breaks or barrelling breaks. It will be on this basis that you should be buying your board. You also have to be true to yourself about your abilities. There is no point in buying a board that experts use for international competitions.
Get The Right Size
The size of the board matters not just as you progress in your surfing. It also depends on your height and weight. The size will also change as per your ability to ride the waves and what type of waves you will be riding. You could borrow different boards from your friends and try them before you decide on what to buy.
The size of the surfboard will also depend on the size of waves that you will be riding.
While the size of the board is important to consider there are other factors too. An important factor is a volume. You should consider your body type for this. Depending on this you should decide on what volume your board should have. If you buy the board which has the right volume for your body type, it will make a big difference in catching the waves.
A lot of factors will impact the volume that is most suited for you. Your preference, weight, experience, skill, fitness, age and style matter when it comes to volume. When you buy the board, you should certainly consider the volume of the board.
If you can get something suited for you off the rack it is good. Otherwise, you can get one customized as per your style too.
