Board Sock

The board sock is NSP's lightweight board protection option. A board sock mainly serves to protect your board from scratches, sun damage, and minor dings. So if your board(s) never ride on top of the car and they don’t get too much sun exposure then these are a great option!

Well usually, the more high-performance your board is, the more fragile it is as well. Anyone who regularly drives their equipment to the beach knows. Loading your board in the back of your car is convenient, but a board sock makes sure your board is protected.

Immediate advantages of the board sock are that they are light and easy to stash. You can wash them like regular laundry, and in terms of ventilation (getting rid of excess moisture), they are the best too. Day bags and travel bags offer more protection but simply aren’t as easy to handle. Plus, when bags do not have ventilation they tend to collect a lot of moisture, mold, and dirt over time.

The disadvantages of the socks are their limited protection. By no means should you travel with a board sock and expect to get away from your adventure with a pristine board! Getting your board in or out of a sock may take some practice. We have seen the occasional drop on concrete by careless individuals. Still, essentially, a board sock is a great way to get your surfboard from A to B in a protected environment. Separate your equipment from the rest of the cargo and avoid scratches and mild dings.
Board socks also protect your board from the sun and avoid getting wax, sand, and water in your car. Anyone familiar with a roof rack stained with excess wax will also appreciate the separating qualities of the NSP board socks. But as stated previously, they do not protect your boards from impact. Anyone going on a serious road trip and wants to protect their boards in the best possible way should look into a board sock/bag combo. Layers are always good, but once you arrive at your destination, you will have the option to bring your board to the beach with your board sock.
Triple board bag owners going the extra mile are well-advised to use a board sock as well, especially when other cargo finds its way into your board bag, sliding around during transit, potentially running the finish of your cherished boards. Seasoned surf travelers already know that a combination of sturdy board bags, board socks for your finish, and finally, some reusable isolation foam (those strips plumbers use, or bubble wrap) for your rails make ideal travel partners.
