Surf Equipment Needed by Beginners

If you are among beginners then you are better off renting your surf equipment or alternatively borrowing it from your friends. We can not recommend that you buy expensive equipment you see all over the place in advertisements. You can always end up not enjoying practicing surfing. Also, new wetsuits and good boards are definitely expensive for most budgets. You should also think about the fact that a beginner must never use a shortboard and buying the longboard just for learning purposes can be a waste of money.

When anyone learns how to surf the one equipment part that is the most important is definitely one big board. One board, larger than 8 feet is preferred. Foam longboards guarantee that you are to catch waves easily and avoid some possible injuries. Size is definitely important for all beginners.

Now if we talk about using a wetsuit there is a need to analyze your personal budget first. A discussion with local surfers is going to show you exactly what is needed. One complete wetsuit is usually necessary in the event that you are to surf where the water is colder. If not then you can do well with just boardshorts in your surf equipment. In the event that you think you will surf for longer periods of time you might want to consider purchasing one good wetsuit.

Now that your surf equipment includes the board and possibly a wetsuit you will not need much more. You might want to think about investing in a surfboard leash. Alternatively there is also the possibility of investing into surf wax in the event that you do not rent a board. The surf equipment that is usually recommended by most people is just optional. You can, of course, visit different surf shops so that you can see other items that can be bought as time will pass and you will get better. Once you purchase/rent basic surf equipment you should not think about a lot more.
