So one of the most common questions we get here is, "what size of surfboard should I get?" I wish that there was a simple answer to that but unfortunately there really isn't. The answer lies in several questions I need to ask you... "What's your skill level, height, weight, goal, type of wave...?" I think you get the idea.
So you've come to a point in your surfing where you're ready for a little more maneuverability but not ready to make the jump to a shortboard (by the way, that's the vast majority of you that have never surfed anything other than a longboard). But what do you switch to?
THIS is one of the most exciting aspects of being a part of Degree Surfboards and riding along with us on our journey… Nobody loves new surfboard like you guys (except us). Every few seasons we mix it up, picking out a few new colors to try out, sending a handful of one-of-a-kind surfboards through production. We used to just let be sold just like any other of the standard colors in that model, but we thought we'd shake it up a little bit, so here's the deal...
What came out, was something that gave shortboarders a chance to leave no day unridden, and gave longer board riders a way to mingle in the pocket without giving up glide, float, stability and control.
There are many things to consider when you go to purchase a surfboard. Have you surfed before? What size waves do you have access to? How tall are you? How about your physical fitness and age? The term surfboard design can encompass all aspects of your surfboard.
