In today’s blog, we will be sharing a couple of easy-to-follow tips and tricks that can help you create the most attractive surfboard designs. And we are sure that after having read our blog, you will be able to make the most of our free surfboard mock-up PSD file so, let us dive right into it. Shall we? 🏄
The origin of surfboards is ancient Hawaii where the locals would create the boards using wood from the trees for example koa. In the Hawaiian language, the surfboards were called papa he’e nalu. The best thing about surfboards or other outdoor activities is that once you get your way around them, you will want to stay connected to them. For example; some people surf almost daily and then there are people who would do that occasionally but nonetheless, it is the thrill and the adrenaline rush that encourages them to stay around their surfboards every once in a while.
Now, when it comes to keeping the surfers close to their surfboards, one of the things that will do the trick is how the surfboards look like. And no, we are not making it up. We mean what else is going to create an emotional connection between a person and their surfboard, right? Okay so, there are many ways of going about it but the one that is most effective is to get to know what your audiences are like, you know. So, for starters; define your target audiences in multiple contexts such as their genders, age groups skill levels as well as specific needs.
In addition to that, you can also consider the size and weight of your target audiences as well so that you can only design stuff for them that will be beneficial and not a waste of money. The reason behind mentioning the size and weight considerations is that adults would require surfboards that would be heavier as compared to the boards that you will be making for the younger audience because they would need smaller and quite frankly speaking, lighter boards to get going.
We would also like to talk about a couple of technical terms in the context of surfing to help you guys design the best surfboards for your existing and potential customers. For example; for beginners, you would want to design boards that focus on stability as that’s the first thing young surfers will have to work on. To ensure that the surfboards for your young audiences are meeting their needs, you would want to work on wider outlines and a flat rocker. By doing so, you will be able to help the young surfers master stability while they ride on ocean waves.
On the other hand, adults or experienced surfers would want to work on designs that offer narrow outlines and a more defined rocker. By following this design tip, you will be able to make sure that professional or experienced surfers enjoy the activity without any problem.
Okay, guys, it is now time for us to share with you guys a couple of tips that will help you enhance the aesthetics of the surfboards that you will be designing in the near future. First things first; as you must have already worked on getting to know your target audiences and their likes and dislikes and have your hands on other relevant and insightful information, you would like to play with colors and imagery so that you can create the designs that won’t just complement the sport but the surfers as well. We suggest you pick vibrant colors and add waves to the design to complete the look. But if you wish to make even more creative designs, then you must also go for motivational quotes as well as they will be helpful in encouraging the surfers to stay on the right track.
