“What material should I buy my surfboard? Which is the best for me? And which one is the best for the environment? “Be honest, how many times have you asked yourself these questions?

As always we recommend that in these cases you consult a specialist who can not only ask you all the doubts that hover in your head, but guide and advise you according to your level and experience. Something essential, especially when you first start surfing and you have no idea where to start and Internet in the end can confuse us even more.

Unfortunately, even the experts themselves do not agree because each presents a series of fairly convincing features.
