Hurricane Surfboard Buyer’s Guide 2020
Your guide to high-performance surfboards this hurricane season
Us Floridians tolerate a lot. We cope with the fact that everybody and their mother sees our state as one big vacation home. We bear headline after headline poking fun at the antics of the infamous “Florida man”. We endure sweltering hot summers with flat spells that seem to last for months on end.
Hurricane season changes all of that.
Okay, so Florida may still be the world’s largest vacation home, and it’s still awfully hot out…but the storm season also brings waves. After relying on small wave boards to keep us surfers entertained with the weak summertime swell, hurricane season also marks a time to dust off your favorite high-performance shortboard, or to invest in a new stick. If you’re looking for advice on what board can best handle solid hurricane swell (afterall, it’s probably been loggable at best for months so we understand), our experts at the Surf Station boardroom have you covered. To kick off the storm season, we’re going to share our first five surfboard picks best for handling the next big swell.
