Surfing Gear

surfing gear and equipment

The Ghana Surfer believes that some surf gear is better than others and as you read the learn to surf guide, you will notice that The Pro surfer provides product reviews to help you know what surf gear you will need to buy. These surf products are chosen by The Ghana Surfer because THE GHANA SURFER USES THEM PERSONALLY.

Building a reputation as a trustworthy source of advice is critical for the Pro surfer's business. The Ghana Surfer will not jeopardize that reputation because of advertising pressure. You will notice that the Pro surfer does not advertise multiple surf products, that do the same thing, in order to maximize advertising revenue. The Ghana Surfer just advertises one product in each category, and that one product will be, in The Ghana Surfer's genuine opinion: 'the best' and most appropriate for the purpose they are being recommended.
