Surf Equipment for Safety0 comments
Who would have thought that you would need so much equipment just to go surfing? It's not all about buying a surfboard and surfing away, you know?
This is the last section, so try to bear with us. If you want to surf safely, then these items should be of interest to you.
Surfboard Nose Protector
The surfboard nose protector, or nose cone, is a little, inexpensive piece of surf equipment. It serves two purposes. The first is that it helps prevent damage to the nose of your surfboard in case it happens to run into anything. The second and most important is that it transforms the deadly pointed nose of your board into a much less dangerous weapon, possibly making the difference in keeping an eye. All the squeamish people have probably now swooned or logged off in disgust, but now this: the nose cone is a relatively cheap piece of safety equipment, one that you never think about but certainly will when you happen to need it.

On the subject of safety, here is the ultimate protection in the surf — the helmet.
The Gath Helmet
The surfer's safety helmet does not need any explanation. It works just like a skateboard or cycling helmet, but you can wear it in the sea! It's great for those really busy days down at the local beach during the summer. No matter how good a surfer you are, you cannot account for those surfing around you. The most popular range of helmets out there is the Gath helmet.
The Gath Helmet - Surf Safely
Make sure that you wear some sort of sunscreen, and make sure that it's waterproof! We won't list the dangers of exposing yourself to the rays of the sun for long periods of time. You know that sunburn really bloody hurts, and it makes you look like a big red lobster!
It could be you!
Not only do you look the part, but you also surf safely. You no longer have to worry about wiping out; you know that you'll be safe. Arm bands come in a nice range of colours and shapes. They make a great addition to anyone's surfing equipment stash.
Real Surfers Use Armbands!
