Good Things About The Product

So, let’s start the review with the good things I found whilst using this Dakine Knit Surfboard Sock…

✔️  The cotton has a good thickness to it that protects the surfboard well
✔️  It’s a great value alternative to a big expensive surfboard bag
✔️  Easy to clean in the washing machine on a cool wash
✔️ 
Comes in a smartly packaged travel bag, great for packing away when your sock is not in use
✔️  Feels like a premium product made from high quality materials
✔️  Comes with a protective foam triangle for the fragile nose part of your surfboard

 

Not So Good Things About The Product

✖️  Difficult to get on and off when wax is on the surfboard
✖️  You can still get more protection from surfboard bags but it is more expensive
✖️  Not many designs available

 

Quick Tips Before Purchasing

✔️  Get more length than you need, it’ll then be easier to put on and can be used on more boards
✔️  Check the width of your surfboard to make sure the surfboard sock will stretch over the middle section of your surfboard

 

Would I Recommend This Product?

So, having used the Dakine surfboard sock for a good few months, the main question is – would I recommend it to you guys? In short, yes I would.

If you’re looking for a reliable surfboard sock that will last, Dakine has you and your surfboard covered. Their surfboard sock is made from a thick, premium cotton that provides a great amount of protection. I had a few bumps and knocks getting the board in and out of the car but it was safe and sound inside the sock.

It’s easy to clean in a standard wash, allowing for any wax stuck to the inside to come unstuck. Sticking it in the wash doesn’t affect any of the stitching or the foam triangle that protects the nose. As I’ve mentioned, it’s built to last and made from high quality materials.

The travel bag makes it easy to pack away when not in use, and it’s always good to have spare surfboard sock incase of any inpromptu purchases.

Before I forked out for a more bulky surfboard bag, this surfboard sock transported my surfboard on all my surfing trips. It’s a great little surfboard sock and I’ll be using it to protect my next board.

There are plenty of surfboard socks on the market but Dakines Knit Surfboard Sock feels like a premium product with great build quality. The price might be higher than expected for some at £34.99, but it does feel like the type of product that will last.
