“While it’s nice to have your own surfboard, renting one is sometimes the most practical option. This is especially true for those who are new to the sport, or kids who will quickly outgrow their current ones. Renting also removes the hassle and expense of traveling with a surfboard in tow. Fortunately, a local Tamarindo surf shop like Neptuno offers board rentals for surfers on a tight budget.
There’s a time to scrimp and a time to splurge, but when it comes to your surf leash, always pay good money. Remember, the leash is the only thing connecting you to the board; if you buy a cheap one and it breaks, you might lose your board to the ocean, thus necessitating replacement. So go ahead and splurge, you’ll thank yourself later.”
