Slide a soft protective sock over your surfboard to shield it from dings and UV sunlight that turns your board yellow.
Doorways and stairways are surfboard killers. We've all been guilty of dinging our boards while carrying them to the car (or dinging them while loading them into the car).
The surfboard sock cover is such a simple solution, but it's more than just ding protection.
You've probably seen how surfboards turn yellow with age. If you want to keep your board bright white, you need to protect it from UV light (the sun). Keeping your board covered with a sock when transporting and storing it, will maintain its fresh whiteness for years.
And there's nothing worse than getting wax all over the interior of your car... it's next to impossible to remove that sticky mess. Cover your board with a sock bag, and keep the wax on your surfboard where it belongs.
Surfboard Sock Features
Durable knit stretch fabric provides cushioning and protection
These sock covers stretch to fit any surfboard. And if you're still not sure, just email Stevie (email@example.com) with your board's dimensions and he can confirm if it will fit.
We recommend getting a sock size at least a few inches longer than your surfboard. This just makes it easier to work with, and if you ever decide to get a slightly longer board, you won't have to buy a new sock.
Every size is 21" wide un-stretched, and they stretch to over 30".
Pointed Nose Board Socks
7' and shorter socks have pointed noses.
Rounded Nose Board Socks
8' and longer socks have rounded noses.
Surfboard Sock Material
Our surfboard socks are made from a thick, super stretchy, knit polyester material.
This material provides plenty of protection from dings and UV rays, and won't degrade if left outside.
Your leash and leave/debris might stick to this knit sock, so if that's an issue for you, you might want to check out our canvas surfboard bags instead.
How To Use Your Surfboard Sock
Using a surfboard sock is key to keeping your surfboard in the best condition possible.
When you board is uncovered and left in the sunlight, its fresh white color will start to yellow.
So if you store your surfboard outside, or near a window in your house/garage, make sure to keep it covered with a sock.
And whether you ride to the beach on a bike, scooter, or in a car, you'll want to have the sock on for ding and sun protection... AND to keep the wax from melting onto your vehicle.
