Here are a few things you can do to prolong the life of your surfboard:
— Keep your surfboard in a board sock, surfboard bag or other type of protective cover when not in use.
— Don’t leave your surfboard in direct sunlight or a hot car. This will melt your wax and, more importantly, damage the foam and glass.
— Make sure you repair all damages/dings straight away or next time you hit the water, your surfboard will waterlog.
— Always clean and redo your wax job every few weeks (if you surf regularly). Last thing you want is a nasty, sandy wax job.
