Surftech, Now Offering Surfcare Protection Plans on all New Board Sales

We all love buying a brand new board! But most people don’t realize that these beautiful boards don’t come with a warranty to cover dings and breaks. Meaning, if you ding or break it, it’s on you. This is why Surftech is now offering Surfcare Protection Plans. With Surfcare on your new board, you can now surf with peace of mind knowing you’re covered. Surfcare offers protection plans to protect your boards from dings and breaks while in use. It’s the first of it’s kind and it is long overdue!

Surftech is always interested in what’s best for our customers.We are always looking for ways to extend the value and life of their most valuable purchases. Because surfboards are extremely fragile and surfers are constantly on the search for new waves and challenges, at some point their prized possessions are likely to become damaged. Providing Surfcare will keep customers’ boards looking and riding like new, while minimizing the heartache of those inevitable dings and breaks along the way.

Both Surftech and Surfcare are excited to bring a protection plan to market that is meant for everyday use, going above and beyond ‘travel insurance’ that is traditionally only used for a minority of the days most surfers spend using their surfboards.

“We’re happy to be offering a product that will protect and enhance our customers’ surfing experience”, said John Vance CEO. “Joining forces with Surfcare extends our confidence in delivering the very best possible to our customers.”

Surfcare founder Nick Stolz says, “We are excited about partnering with a brand that puts a high focus on the quality and sustainability of the boards they manufacture. Being able to cover Surftech’s customers on dings and breaks, will ensure surfers have the best possible experience on their new boards.”
