Surfing Gear That Every Surfer Needs
Surfing is a sport that can be costly right out of the gate. Borrowing, renting, or purchasing used equipment is a safe idea at first. So, are you going to the surf shop to begin your adventure with this exciting sport?
As a surfer, what equipment do you require? Check out this guide to learn about the important surfing gear that every surfer should have.
Before you hit the waves, make sure you have the following items:
1. A SURFBOARD
Surfboards come in a variety of shapes and sizes. To find the one that’s perfect for you, you’ll want to seek advice from someone at a surf shop.
If you’re starting, a larger board is preferable. For beginners, a foam board is also recommended. When you’re first practicing, it’ll be a little gentler on your body. They can be found in any surf shop.
Inquire about mounting surf fins on your board for improved results.
The leash, also known as a leg rope, will keep you and your surfboard together. The leash should be the same length as your board or slightly longer.
It also serves as a safety feature. In any case, it keeps you attached to your board.
3. TRACTION PAD OR SURF WAX
Instead of wax, you can use a traction pad to attach to your board. If well handled, the traction pad will last for years.
If your board doesn’t come with a traction pad, you’ll need to wax it to get some traction when riding the waves.
To prevent you from sliding and falling, the wax is added to the board in the place where your feet go.
Do you have a wetsuit? Guard with a rash? Is it better to wear a one-piece or two-piece bathing suit? Shorts for the beach? – one is your personal favorite?
If you’re going to start with a bathing suit, you’ll need a rash guard. The salt, the sheet, and the rubbing can irritate your skin if you don’t wear a good “rashie.” It will also shield the skin from harmful UV rays as a bonus.
You might want to invest in a decent wetsuit, on the other hand. It will hold the elements at bay for the whole body. There is a wide price range, so do your research before purchasing.
5. EARPLUGS FOR SURFER
You don’t want to find out what a surfer’s ear is if you don’t already know. To avoid this uncomfortable situation, invest in a healthy pair of earplugs to use while surfing in cold water.
