Caring for your foam surfboard is essential to ensure its longevity and performance. Here's a comprehensive guide to help you keep your board in top shape.

Protect Your Board from Heat

Excessive heat and direct sunlight can damage your surfboard.

  • Avoid leaving your board in direct sunlight for extended periods.
  • Never leave your board in a hot car. Even an hour can cause irreversible damage.
  • Store your board in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.

Regular Cleaning

Regular cleaning is crucial to maintain the quality of your board.

  • Rinse your board with fresh water after every surf to remove dirt, sand, and salt residue.
  • Wipe down your board with a clean towel and ensure it's dry before storing.
  • Avoid using solvents or cleaners on your board.

Handle with Care

Impacts can damage your board, both in and out of the surf.

  • Be cautious while handling your board to avoid impacts.
  • When strapping your board onto vehicle roof racks, don't cinch the straps too tight as it may crease the rails.
  • Use a board bag as much as possible when transporting your board.


If your board gets damaged, it's important to know how to repair it.

  • For punctures, cuts, gashes, peeled seams, skin rips, and/or de-lams, use products like 3M® 5200, Sikaflex® 291, Gorilla Glue®, or hot-melt glue from a glue gun.
  • Ensure the repair area is clean and dry before attempting repairs.
  • Allow 24 hours for repairs to cure and dry before use.

Safety Considerations

Remember, a foam surfboard is not a lifesaving device.

  • Always surf with a buddy when possible.
  • Check surf spots for potential hazards before paddling out.
  • Follow the rules of surf etiquette to ensure a long life for your board.

By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your foam surfboard stays in great shape for many surfing sessions to come. Happy surfing!
