Choose from a wide-range of Surfboards for Hire
I’m new to surfing, what type of board should I hire?
Learning to surf can be an extremely fulfilling experience, however the experience can also be hindered without the right surfboard. So which surfboard should a beginner hire?
When you’re learning to surf, there are a few fundamental skills you’ll need to practice before progressing, such as your pop-up, foot positioning and balance. A good surfboard for beginners is one that makes it as easy as possible to practice these skills, so opting for a board which is easy to paddle, has a high buoyancy, and is very stable, is recommended. Fundamentally speaking, the bigger the board, the better.
Choosing a board with great floatability and a wide platform to stand on increases your chances of catching and riding more waves, which is ideal for progression. Because of these factors, a longboard surfboard is often considered the best surfboard for beginners.
What should I look for when hiring a surfboard?
There are a few things you’ll need to check before hiring a surfboard on the Sunshine Coast.
Before hiring a surfboard check the current surfing conditions online. You can read online surf reports to get an idea of the tide, conditions and wave size which may influence what type of board you hire, or if you hire a board at all.
Rather than travelling longer distances to and from a surfboard hire shop, consider finding a local surfing shop that is situated near your desired surf break. This means you to waste less time driving around to and from your surf location.
Beach Beat offers surfboard rental at Coolum, Alexandra Headlands and Caloundra, so there’s always a surfboard for hire nearby.
Accidents happen, and when they do you may be liable for damages or total loss. To prevent damages from happening, it’s always recommended to secure your surfboard when travelling to ensure it doesn’t get any dings or holes. Always make sure you are aware of your surroundings when surfing, making sure to stay clear of any dangerous rocks or other surfers already on a wave.
