If yes, then you will surely like to know all about it, starting from its origin, types and modern evaluation to become a pro in the game. Though popularly water surfing is associated with California, the sport actually originated in Hawaii more than hundred years back. But as expected, the sport has definitely undergone massive changes in modern age compared to its days of origin. Nowadays, surfing boards are available in a varied size, ranging from 5 to 12 feet that you can choose from in accordance to your need and comfort. To make your ride over the waves more enjoying and enticing, there are better performing surfboards that are attached with fins to make the moves more smooth and balancing.

Talking about the various surfboard and its designs, we can categorize it broadly under three types: soft boards, long boards and short boards. As the name suggests, the soft boards are made of flexible material that allows an individual to keep his balance adjusted rightly. Mostly preferred for beginners, these surfboards help reduce the chance of getting hurt as they are made of soft and pliable materials. But if you are not a novice but quite apt with the surfboard beneath your legs, then the long board is the right choice for you. While traditionally surfboards were carved from solid wood trucks, these boards are of medium size and made of fiberglass, thus making it tough and rigid to be best suited for intermediate surfers. Also known as strong glassed surfboard, these surfboards are the most favored and opted by people as it offers best facility of balance and stability.

The most prominent con of using glass surfboard that you should be aware of is its high chance of getting perished. Being made of glass, these boards take up lots of space and are hard to carry when travelling, more so when there are more surfboards in the same luggage pack. Moreover, adding to your trouble, glass boards are hard to repair, thus making it a complete waste of money if broken once.
