Why You Shouldn’t… & Why You Should… Series on SurfScience.com

Why You Shouldn't...

We just published an article on the main site that is sure to turn a few heads.  Our “Why You Shouldn’t Shortboard” article will be the first in a series of articles about why you should an should not ride each of the different types of surfboards.

The whole series will be filled with a bit of humor but point out some of the serious weaknesses each board type has.  Our hope is that after reading all of the articles, surfers will be able to better judge what type of board to take out surfing.

After doing a series of “Why You Shouldn’t …” we will follow it up with a “Why You Should…” series, where we point out the advantages of each of the types of surfboards.

Thats what we’re all about at SurfScience, making the best decision to get the most stoke out of the limited time we have to surf.  Everyone on our team has a few different board shapes from shortboard to hybrid to longboard and even some funky stuff like alaias.  Heck, we have one guy that won’t ride any board made after 1975.

We hope you enjoy the read, have a laugh and hopefully it will at least challenge your board decision a bit and help you ride boards that are more enjoyable when the conditions dictate.
