Adaptive surfing has gained popularity among disabled people as it helps in promoting their physical well-being, building confidence, and combating discrimination. Furthermore, it improves sensorial and psychosocial skills. It has added value to the prevention and treatment of many pathological conditions by preventing sedentary lifestyles and stress, contributing to social inclusion, and encouraging teamwork among people with disabilities. As a result, organizations such as the Portuguese Association of Adapted Surfing, SURFaddict, are showcasing the importance of surfing as a vital therapeutic tool for people with many different disabilities. Furthermore, the International Surfing Association (ISA) is planning to include the sport in the Paralympic Games to make it more accessible. Such promotions of the therapeutic benefits of the sport will encourage the participation of new surfers, which, in turn, will boost sales of surfboards. Therefore, the surfboard market growth is expected to be substantial over the forecast period.

Report Highlights:

  • The major surfboard market growth came from shortboards segment. Shortboards are categorized into fish boards, funboards, and gun boards. Among these, funboards are designed for beginners, and fish boards and gun boards are for experienced surfers. The increasing participation in surfing, growing surf tourism, and the rising disposable income will augment sales of funboards during the forecast period. Also, the sales of gun surfboards are expected to spike because the number of experienced surfers, seeking to explore big waves, is rising. Gun boards are designed for surfing steep and big waves.
  • North America was the largest regional market for surfboards in 2019. It will continue to offer significant growth opportunities to market vendors over the forecast period. The rise in surf tourism in the US and Canada and the growing women participants in water sports are significantly contributing to the surfboard market growth in North America.

Continuous Evolution in Designs of Surfboards will be a Key Market Trend

Vendors are coming up with surfboards with improved features, which is one of the vital surfboard market trends. Many surfing enthusiasts are also opting to design their surfboards. Daniel Thomson, an Australian surfboard shaper, has designed a surfboard called the Vanguard, which has reduced weight owing to nose-less crafts, straight rails, and angular tails. In 2018, Awake, a Swedish company, launched an electric surfboard, which can travel at the speed of more than 30 miles per hour. The electric surfboard is controlled with the help of a wireless hand accelerator and has an operational time of more than 30 minutes. These factors will positively impact the market growth.
