Surfers continue to seek surfing sports to satiate the craving for adventure, fun and excitement. The electrically propelled design of surfboards allows surfers to enjoy surfing in the absence of waves. The rise of electric water sports, in particular, electric surfboard, is expected to redefine the surfing industry landscape. The superior characteristics provided by electric surfboards in terms of superior torque and higher water propulsion provides the surfers with better surfing experience over traditional surfboards, thereby driving the popularity of electric surfboards.

Surfing industry has witnessed a meteoric rise in the past two decades against the backdrop of growing demand for recreational sports, millennials’ preference for adventure sports and significant investments from stakeholders to introduce fun-filled and effective water sports equipment. A report by the World Tourism Organization adventure tourism which includes surfing is a rapidly growing subset of the lucrative tourism industry.

While the surfing industry is expanding at a rapid pace, sustainability issues continue to challenge the pace of surfing industry development, thereby deterring the growth of the surfboard market.

Longboards and Shortboards Remain Highly Preferred Among Surfers

Surfers continue to prefer longboards for their superiority features such as stability and noseriding. Although heavier than shortboards, riding on longboards remains a vogue among surfers worldwide. However, demand for shortboards is estimated to rise in the future on the back of advantages of greater maneuverability over longboards in competitive events. Aware of these surfer preferences, manufacturers in the surfboards market continue to introduce innovative designs of longboards and shortboards.

Millennial and Gen Z Preferences Changing the Surfboard Industry Landscape

In the past decade, surfboards industry has witnessed multiple introductions in the design of surfboards in terms of material, shape, utility and operations. These introductions are majorly driven by evolving surfer preferences wherein electronic surfboards is one of the prominent examples of such introductions. However, as the millennial and Gen Z population reaches maturity, their propensity for spending time on online surfing has negatively impacted the liking for adventure or outdoor sports activities. Youth sentiments as these are likely to impact their participation in surfing, thereby influencing the sales of surfboards in the future.
