Why You Should Demo A Surfboard Before You Buy

Why You Should Demo A Surfboard Before You Buy

If you're considering buying a new surfboard, you should head on down to SURFscape because  it's a good idea to demo the board before making a purchase.

Here are some reasons why:

  1. Board fit and feel: Every surfer has a unique style and preference when it comes to the feel of their board. Demoing a surfboard allows you to feel the board under your feet and see how it fits your body type and surfing style. It's important to make sure that the board is comfortable and feels like an extension of your body when you're out in the lineup.
  2. Board performance: Surfboards come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and each design has unique performance characteristics. Demoing a board allows you to see how the board performs in different types of waves and conditions. You can test the board's turning ability, speed, and maneuverability to see if it matches your needs and expectations.
  3. Board compatibility: Not all surfboards are suitable for all surfers, depending on skill level, height, weight, and wave conditions. Demoing a board allows you to see if the board is compatible with your body type and surfing ability. You can also get feedback from the board builders who can recommend the best board for your needs.

In short, demoing a surfboard at SURFscape will allow you to get a hands-on experience with the board and see if it's the right fit for you before making a purchase. It's a smart way to invest in a surfboard that will help you improve your skills and enjoy your time in the water.
