Hey beginner surfers! I’m sure at some point or another you’ve all had the same question- can you surf with a crack in your board? The answer is yes… but there are some things you should know first. In this blog post, we’ll talk about the different causes
What to do when your surfboard is cracked
If you’re a surfboard owner, there’s always the possibility that your board could get cracked. Whether it’s from hitting a rock or getting dropped on the beach, it can be a big bummer. But don’t worry, there are steps you can take to fix it.
First, take your surfboard to a surfshop and have them assess the damage. They’ll be able to tell you how severe the crack is and what kind of repair is needed. If it’s a small crack, they may be able to do a quick fix right in the shop. But if it’s a bigger crack, they may need to send it out to get repaired.
Once you have your surfboard back, be careful not to put too much stress on the repaired area. Avoid dropping it or hitting it against things. And be sure to rinse it off with fresh water after every surf session. With proper care, your surfboard will be good as new in no time.
How to prevent your surfboard to crack
As any surfer knows, the last thing you want is for your surfboard to crack. Not only will it ruin your day, but it can also be dangerous. There are a few things you can do to help prevent your surfboard from cracking.
First, make sure you’re using the right wax. The wrong wax can cause the board to dry out and become brittle, making it more susceptible to cracking.
Second, avoid leaving your board in direct sunlight for extended periods of time. The sun can also cause the board to dry out and become brittle.
Finally, if you do happen to crack your board, don’t despair. Most cracks can be repaired relatively easily. With a little care and attention, you can keep your surfboard in tip-top condition for years to come.
