Surf Board and Accessories
CHOOSE YOUR SURF ACCESSORIES WELL
A good surfer should always carry a series of accessories that can make you enjoy more of your surf sessions, these items range from wax to keels and leash as well as a repair kit.
SELECT YOUR WAX DEPENDING ON THE TIME OF THE YEAR
In decathlon we can find three types of waxes or paraffins. It should be chosen with the temperature of the water we are going to surf so that it has the perfect grip. If we choose a wax for cold water and we get into hot water, it will melt. On the other hand, if we choose a wax for hot water and we get into cold water, it will stay too hard and we will not get an optimal grip. In the surf blog you will find all the tips and tools to tune up your surfboard.
CHOOSE THE LEASH DEPENDING ON THE MEASUREMENTS OF YOUR TABLE, NOT ON YOUR ASPECT
The choice of the leash is essential so that it is not too short, which causes that in a fall the board will hit us when bouncing, nor too long that we get tangled when performing the take off. For example, if you have a table of 6 '2 "the best invention is a 6'. However, if it is a 6 '6 "table, the best option is to choose a 7' leash. DO NOT FORGET ABOUT THE FINS, BUT FORGET ABOUT SURFING. The fin is a very important element in surfing, as it provides the necessary grip to guide the wave. There are several sets of fins, both for longboard and short boards, in addition you have keels with rubber edge to avoid cuts.
