FAQ's

These are some of our most commonly asked questions here at Green Overhead, if you don't find the answer you are looking for please give us a call and a member of our team will happily help you 01803 659770.

What are your opening hours? We are open Monday-Friday 9am-5pm except on public bank holidays when we will be closed and out enjoying the surf.

How do I know what size leash I need for my board? A surfboard leash should be roughly the same length as your surfboard. Please give us a call on 01803 659770 if you are unsure and a member of our team will be able to help you with this.

What surf wax should I use? It totally depends on where you are surfing, in the UK we tend to use Cool wax in the summer and then Cold wax in the winter. For places like Morocco we would recommend a warm water surf wax and for more exotic locations such as the Maldives, we would recommend a harder tropical wax.

How do I know what litres I need in my board? This is a tricky question as it totally depends on what type of waves you are surfing and how often you go. Please give us a call on 01803 659770 and a member of our team will be able to help you with this.

Do I need a summer or a winter wetsuit? Ideally both! Most people use a summer wetsuit from May-October and then a winter wetsuit from November-April. However, if you are looking for 1 wetsuit to use all year round we would recommend a winter wetsuit. For more information check out our wetsuit blog.

What is the difference between FCS and Futures fins? These are 2 totally different fin systems so it is really important to check what system your board is running before you order fins. If you are unsure please give us a call on 01803 659770 and a member of our team will happily help.

What board do I need if I want to learn to surf? Traditionally Mini Mals are a good starting point as they have plenty of volume and are still easy to manoeuvre, the Next 7'4 is a perfect starting point. This does, however, come down to the weight and height of the rider so please give us a call so we can discuss the right board for you.
