Shortboards For Sale

These are the best boards for competitive surfing and experienced surfers alike. The term “shortboard” doesn’t always mean it is a shorter board, but is usually used to refer to performance boards. They are great for hitting big waves and doing your aerial maneuvers. Below we have listed some awesome shortboards for sale, some specific characteristics of these boards, and finally the type of surfer they are best for:

 

Shortboard Characteristics

Although not always shorter, these boards typically range between 6 and 7 feet in length. The shorter length can make it harder for inexperienced surfers to find and keep their balance. On the other hand, this size offers surfers more maneuverability and speed in larger waves.

These are best for larger waves (5ft and up) and pitching. The smaller size of these can make it harder to catch waves than larger boards, so surfing in large powerful waves is a must. They also work better than other boards inside of deep, long, barrels – once again, best for big waves!!

What kind of Surfer?

So what kind of surfer are these high performance boards best for?

Due to their smaller surface area, and increased difficulty to ride, these are best for experienced surfers. If your beach has large, pitching, waves then these are also a must-have because no other boards will offer you the speed and aerial ability as these in big waves. If you are a beginner then you would probably be better off checking out our Longboard Surfboards for Sale page or our Funboards for Sale page.
