Summertime is my absolute favorite time to surf. Nothing beats the warm water, the relaxed vibe in the air, and the sand on your feet as you sit down for a post-surf session burger. Like a double-double from In-N-Out, or a California burrito from the local Mexican food joint, there is one board I can always count on to deliver a solid summer surf. My 8-foot Wavestorm never leaves my car during the summer, and I’ll tell you why.
It Works in All Conditions
I don’t always know exactly what the conditions are going to be like when I go to the beach during the summer and I don’t always know how long I will be there, but I know without a doubt that my Wavestorm will work in any conditions thrown at it. Whether it is knee-high and blown out, well-overhead and blown out, or perfect hurricane quality conditions, my Wavestorm has seen it, and consistently delivered an amazing surf session because it always works. It may not be the highest performing board out there, but it will drive through onshore chop like a dream and get in early in big waves. I can always count on my ‘Storm to get plenty of fun waves.
I Loan It to Friends and Family
If you are anything like me, summertime means family and friends visiting and wanting to learn how to surf. There is no better board for this purpose than a Wavestorm. Not only is it an excellent board for learning to surf, but it is well-priced and durable. I don’t even need to think twice before lending out my Wavestorm to friends or packing it in my in-law’s rental van on top of the beach chairs. It handles abuse way better than a fiberglass board and is relatively easy to repair at home. Plus, Wavestorms are the ultimate party-wave board.
It is Easy to Ride
The Wavestorm is incredibly stable and paddles into waves better than just about any board out there. This makes it one of my favorite boards to ride during the summer, and even year-round. The ease with which it surfs is perfect for summertime because it brings the focus on having fun.
It is Soft
Summertime means crowds of people gathering at the beach. Occasionally surfboards get loose and there is the possibility of it running into someone. Wavestorms are made of foam, which is a lot softer on impact than a traditional fiberglass surfboard. With kids and others wading in the shallow water, it’s a good idea to play it safe and ride a foam surfboard to prevent serious injury to others.
No One Ever Had a Bad Session on a Wavestorm
I’ve never heard of anyone having a bad surf session on a Wavestorm. It rides smooth and easy, paddles quickly, and allows me to catch tons of waves. Most important of all, the Wavestorm brings my focus back to having fun. To me that is what summer is all about, and that’s what keeps me going back to my Wavestorm time and time again.
