How to Buy the Right Size Surfboard

Beginning surfers frequently buy too small of a surfboard when they buy their first board.   We suggest that you rent surfboards until you get good enough to ride one that is 9 feet or less in length.  Most surf board rentals are around $20 a day whereas a new surfboard can cost between $500-$1,000.   So for $500 you could get 25 days of surfboard rentals.  In 25 days you should be able to move down in size at least  a 10 ft surfboard an so on.
