Here we look at the different sorts of equipment that you'll come across at the surf shop and down on the beach. The surf industry is now rather huge, so the choice of actual items is almost endless. Check out the links in this section to find out the most important equipment and what will suit you the best.
The surfboard is most important piece of equipment that you'll need. Different boards will suit different conditions and different skill levels.
The surfboard leash is used to attach your board to your leg, ensuring that after falling off you don't have to go swimming back to the beach to retrieve your board.
Fins are attached to the bottom of the surfboard and help hold the board on the wave. There are two main types: removable and permanent glassed fins. We look at them in detail.
If you want to surf all year round and the water temperature is too cold for boardshorts, then you'll need a wetsuit.
Keep your board safe and ding-free while it's being stored or transported. There are three main types: a sock, a soft boardbag, and a hard case.
Boardshorts are the alternative wear for those lucky enough to be surfing in warmer water. Essentially these are made from lightweight, quick-drying material and have become a hot fashion item.
