Surfboards and their varieties

Surfboard- One of the necessary things for surfing.

At the moment, modern boards have moved very far from their large ancestors made of wood, both in terms of board construction and design, the materials from which the boards are made have also changed very much. The manufacture of boards is still carried out manually as before. They are made by special people called Shapers. The boards are made of polystyrene, which is why they are so light, and they are coated with a special layer of fiberglass on top, so they are quite strong and have good glide.
