Surfing is a great recreational sport, but is also used for other purposes. Whether you own a classic, vintage or new surfboard, riding one is always a fun and thrilling experience. Surfboards are used for fishing, sport and even for lifeguard duties. Most beginners take lessons from a certified surfing instructor.

Long boards are easier for beginners to maneuver in the water than short boards are. Shorter models make it harder to catch a wave. All long and short board have fins on their underside to prevent the board from slipping sideways. They also have leashes that attach the rider's ankle to keep it from floating away when you fall.

Fishing from these boards requires skill. When you get a bite, you must have the strength to stay on top of your board while reeling in your catch.

Surfing for fun or competition is a popular coastal activity. When traveling, you might find it easier to rent rather than pay the airline baggage fees for traveling with a board. Rent from any board shop near the beach. The sport of surfing involves padding out from the shore and then waiting for a wave. Once you catch a wave, you ride the it back to shore. Keep your board waxed for foot traction. Usually, while surfing you will wear a wetsuit to keep warm.

Boards are usually made from foam, fiberglass and layers of epoxy. Epoxy protects the board from deterioration. They're lightweight and easy to carry. Lifeguards often utilize surfboards to perform rescues in the ocean.

Shop for cheap used or customized models from a local company or retail store. Don't forget to purchase the right accessories and apparel for surfing.

Others charge a lot of money to pack and ship a new or used surfboard, so be aware of the costs. If buying in store, visit a few different ones to browse product selection and supply, which can include longboard, shortboard, wax, foot strap, pad, fin, leash, apparel, accessory items, wet suit, rash guard, and spring. Surf shops are located near beaches, at popular ocean side spots. Find out how long the surf shop has been in business, what the hours are, what the product line entails, what the lesson and instructor availability is, and rent vs. sale options. Keep in mind that the surfboard model you want may not be in stock and may have to be ordered. If the items you need are not currently in stock, ask when and if you can get your desired board or accessory from the company, whether you want a vintage board, shortboard, wet suit, or other supply.
