If you don’t already harbour a deep affection for surfboard socks, now’s a great time to start.

Not only are they the easy, practical solution to bumps, slips, unwanted wax jobs and general in-car trauma, but they ooze low tech chic. Nuzzle your cherished possession -- no, not possession, fibreglass life partner -- but don’t bulk up your cockpit in the process.

Hurricane Stretchy Sock

Surfboard socks provides that soft, textile feel to a slippery surfboard, they even let you pick them up by the scruff of rail material, if you can’t be bothered to bend down. You probably wouldn’t want to drop your fave shooter off a cliff in just a sock, but in terms of door frame d’oh!’s, mellow bumps, harsh sunshine, you’re sweet.

You’re with us so far, socks are alright. Well, great news: now Hurricane have upped their green game with this eco-friendly little number.

A padded hemp nose cone protects the very north of your raft, while a durable super stretch in fetching stripe detail covers the board. A quick pull drawstring seals the deal around your tail, meaning you’re covered.

“So you won’t get high, paranoid, or the munchies from this board sock. You won’t feel awkward walking back into parties”

Even the packaging is smartly zéro déchet, nothing to throw away. It’s a handy reusable wax pouch to keep your sticky icky organised. Unless of course you’ve gone wax free… in that case use it to stash your… whatever you like.

Hemp, you say? Isn’t that, like, weed? Insangu. Wacky backy. Benson & Hendrix. Maui Wowee. Da ‘erb. Sensei. Etc.

No, No it’s not.

Hemp, while technically a strain of the Cannabis sativa, like weed, has low THC and high CBD. So you won’t get high, paranoid, or the munchies from this board sock. You won’t feel awkward walking back into parties. You won't lose entire weekends to film, toast and cereal.

If you’re looking to make a board sock purchase, the Hurricane sock has got you covered. And more importantly, your shred stick.
