What's Your Surfing Skill Level

Surfing Skill Level

Identifying your surfing level is a necessary step for choosing the best-suited surfboard model for your needs & will have an enormous impact on your surfing development.

Make sure that particular surfboard model is recommended for your surfing ability & surf better.

Each surfboard model has a certain amount of performance which affects its stability & the user's experience. It's a simple rule the surfboard models with high-performance characteristics will have less stability & vice versa.

Performance is the board's ability to handle & perform critical manoeuvres. Stability is the surfboard's capacity to handle a the surfer's movements & position on the surfboard.

Example: Hi Performance Surfboards are very unstable & require a high level of skill to control.

The ideal situation is where your surfboard has enough performance to push your surfing & enough stability to keep you from falling.

Note: You can find the recommended surfing level for each surfboard model in the description (tab) within the surfboard overview section.

Below is a guide to help you identify your surfing skill level. It's difficult to describe the different levels & is very subjective. Please be honest with your assessment for best results & use the guide to help build your surfboard buying formula.
