Leash or Leg Rope
The leash/leg rope/ leggie prevents you from losing your surfboard, one end is attached at your ankle, (or calf for longboarders) and the other to the leg rope plug at the tail of the surfboard. Leg ropes come in different lengths to suit the length of the surfboard, and thicknesses to suit the wave conditions; big wave leg ropes are much thicker than regular leg ropes used in small to medium surf.
Wax is rubbed onto the deck of the surfboard to give grip underfoot. There is specific wax for use in warm water and cold water. A wax comb is used to make the wax rough without applying a new coat.
Deck grips or tails pads are used at the tail end of the surfboard to give permanent grip to the back foot, which helps you get the right foot position over the fins to have more control over the surfboard.
Surfboard Nose and Fin Guards
Moulded soft plastic surfboard nose and fin guards can offer protection from physical harm, especially while learning how to surf. They can easily be glued onto the nose and over the fin tips on most surfboards.
Towelling surfboard covers are good for daily use as they aren’t bulky and are light to carry. More durable and hard wearing are the durable, padded travel covers, these protect surfboards whether it be for a road trip or an overseas journey, they are available in sizes to fit most surfboards.
Surfboard Car Racks
Soft racks are removable and easy to use surfboard racks that can be strapped on the car roof when needed. Permanent or fixed hard surfboard racks are also available for most cars.
For a quiver of surfboards its good to have a surfboard rack system to store them in your home or garage when not in use.
