It doesn't matter who you are these days, we ALL are looking for ways to streamline our budgets and save a few bucks here and there. Recreation isn't an exception either. We all want to continue to have fun, get exercise, and find a way to escape reality... even if only for moment. The problem with MOST recreation is that there's a cost to get into the sport, and then a recurring money commitment.
Here's what we mean... Let's take golf for example. To get started, you have to get a set of clubs. Let's be VERY conservative and say you spend $300 on them, plus you'll need a glove, shoes, and several sleeves of golf balls, so let's say an additional $100. That means you're at $400 to get going. Now to play the game you have to pay greens fees each time you go. This is easily a $50 (if you're lucky) per round expense. So if you play once a week you're looking at $200 per month to continue to play and this doesn't include all the lost golf balls you're gonna have to replace (or is that just me?). If you wanted to golf on the cheap, you still have to dip into your pocket, even if all you're doing is going to the practice range. Annually you're spending $2800, which equals $57.69 per round minimum!
Now let's look at surfing. When you buy a surfboard from us, you'll have to dig through the cushions of your couch to find about $400, plus if you want to surf all year long you'll need a wetsuit, so an additional $200 for that. Now if you want to surf once a week this is where the cost gets out of control... oh wait... that's right, there is no cost to surfing after you purchase your gear (well ok, wax... $1). That means your annual cost for surfing is $600. That's just $11.54 each time you go, or $5.77 if you used the same gear for 2 years, or $3.85 if you surf it for 3 years (assuming you surf only once a week)! And this doesn't even address the time commitment! Surfing is the perfect recreational activity. You can grab a quick session before you go to work, or right as the sun is setting, and how many times have you taken your family with you to the golf course?? NEVER probably. But a day at the beach with the fam is easy to do, and you can get your surfing in while you help your kids build sand castles in between sessions. Surfing really is a no-brainer. You get to have fun on the cheap, spend time with your family, and get that much needed escape from reality... all of which are fundamentally important. Ok so surfboards for $3.85 may have been a stretch for the title of this blog post. But I think you get the point, and the more you surf the cheaper it gets. Here's what one of our customers had to say about our boards, price, and quality:
"Oh my gosh, how wrong I was to think the surfboard we got from you might be a little lower quality because the price was so amazing. But it wasn't until my husband got on it that we realized that it is truly an awesome surfboard. "It actually floated my husband better than his VERY expensive surfboard that is a foot longer and custom made! They caught waves they normally wouldn't even paddle for and rode them to shore. "Thanks again for allowing us to come to your home and helping us to pick the right surfboard." -Christy Bartlett San Diego, CA
So, go get a surfboard from us today, and save yourself some money tomorrow.
