Surfboard Guide - Intro

Who is this for?

Surfing isn’t just another sport or hobby, it’s a lifestyle. As surfers, we are a tribe of people that build our week around tides and swells. We understand that when we’re in the water, nothing else matters. It’s just me, my board, and my maker. There’s something very “cleansing” about that. It’s one of few coveted activities that is rejuvenating, active, and yet so centering at the same time.

With surfing, once you’ve tasted the fruit, all you do is crave it. It’s an inexpensive way to enjoy your exercise, reduce your stress, and bring you closer to that place where time stands still and everything is right.

Our goal with this guide is to introduce, re-introduce, or bring you up to speed with all the latest tested trends in surfing. Whether you have been MIA for a while, have never seen the ocean but want to learn how to surf, or have stayed in the water for years, this guide has all the details necessary to take you to the next step in to the deep blue.
