What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages?
For a lot of the non-surfing public, second hand surfboards will be formed from a mixture of wood, vinyl and plastic, however second hand boards are also made from metal such as aluminum. Surfers who use second hand boards will also be able to find some unique shapes to their board such as an octagon, triangle, round and square. Since surfing is an activity that requires being on the move, many surfers will have a different board for each day of the week. However there are surfers who prefer to have the same surfboard throughout the year. This means that a surfer will be able to use the same surfboard for many events including the big swell at Waimea and the local breaks in the evening.
What Can You Do To Save Your Second Hand Surfboards From Destruction By Social Media?

Surfers who surf every day or go to the big Waimea swell will often have a surfboard shop close by to them and these shops will stock both used and new surfboards.

Second hand boards will be easier to get than a new surfboard as they will be more flexible and will be lighter in weight. The downside to second hand surfboards is that they will normally not come with any type of warranty, this is why they are usually purchased second hand. New surfboards will come with a warranty and will be covered if your board breaks or is damaged. Most of the time the surfboard will be repaired free of charge but you may have to pay for a replacement board if it is badly damaged. This is all good if you are buying a surfboard second hand so be sure to check before you buy.
