3 tips to extend the life of your surfing equipment

04/01/2022

It’s always a pleasure to get new surf gear: you know that you are going to share a lot of unforgettable moments together… But as with every relationship you need to take care of it!

Unfortunately the surf equipment is not made to last forever, that’s why you need to do everything you can to extend the life of your surf equipment.

 

Here are 3 tips to extend the life of your surf equipment

1. Rinse your equipment

After each session, clean your surfboard and wetsuit with clear water. The salt of the sea can be super agressive with everything: the zip of the wetsuit, the color of your surfboard, your leash etc.

 

Some beaches like Carcavelos or Ribeira d’Ilhas for instance have public showers which will do the job for your surfboard or leash. Otherwise, think about doing it when you get back home. Obviously, when you clean your wetsuit, just rinse it with clear water.

 

Soap would kill your neoprene!

2. Don’t let your surf gear exposed to the sun

Like the salt, the sun might impact your material. Do not hang your wetsuit directly on the sun, it will make the neoprene much drier. The quality of the neoprene might be affected and your wetsuit will lose its power to keep you warm.

 

When it comes to your surfboard, don’t store it directly into the sun or the board will be yellow after a while.

Let's take care of your gear!

Repair is essential so that you can prolong the life of your surfing equipment. Your action is also protecting the planet as a lot of polluting resources (namely litres of oil) are used in the production of surfing equipment.

If you choose to change your equipment because the one you have is no longer the most suitable for your surfing, you can always give it a second life and give the opportunity to another surfer to reuse it by placing an ad on our page.

When buying your new equipment, namely wetsuits, you can support a Portuguese brand also with ecological values by Deeply. Usa o Community Código BORASURFAR and you will receive 10% of discount on the whole website.
