Why You Should Buy Used Surfboards

Found in Surfboard Care, Surfing — Tags: , , , — Texas Surfer

You’ll save hundreds of dollars if you buy used surfboards.
Brand new surfboards cost a lot of money. A new Rusty shortboard can cost you over $800 easily, and longboards often are priced at over $1,000. Used boards are generally under $400, with many decent boards for first-timers running $250 or less.

  • You’ll save hundreds of dollars if you buy used surfboards.
  • Brand new surfboards cost a lot of money. A new Rusty shortboard can cost you over $800 easily, and longboards often are priced at over $1,000. Used boards are generally under $400, with many decent boards for first-timers running $250 or less.
  • You help out a fellow surfer when you buy their surfboard.
  • The surfboard gets to go to a good home (a surfer’s home where it’ll be loved and played with, not stuck on a wall for looks).
  • When you ding the used board, it’s not as big a deal as it would be if the board was brand new. If you buy your boards new, a major ding or crack can cost you $800 (the price of a new board) versus a couple hundred. And even if the ding is small, the emotional damage is much less if the board is used rather than brand new. It’s similar to getting a scratch on a used car and getting a scratch on a new car.
  • You can have more surfboards because you spend less on them. Imagine the variety of surfboards you could be surfing with! An $800 board could have been 3 used  boards.
  • Used surfboards usually come with a traction pad, a leash, and cool stickers.
  • You get to meet a fellow surfer during the transaction, someone you might end up paddling out with.
  • Buying a used surfboard is the best way to learn how to surf at the lowest cost.
  • It’s easy to find used  boards.
  • It’s easy to sell used  boards when it’s time to get another board. And the same money you sell it with is all you’ll need to get another used surfboard.
