6 Foot Surfboard Bags: Protect your shortboard, groveler, and fish
Whether you are strapping your boards to the top of your rig or throwing them in the back of the truck, these 6 foot bags protect your shortboards on everyday adventures.
We built 6 foot bags with more than just protection in mind – they’re rugged, functional, and adjustable. From sustainable fabrics to the roll-bottom closure system, these handmade bags are a must-have for any surfer.
How Faro bags protect your surfboard
Whether it’s fiberglass, epoxy, or carbon fiber, your board isn’t immune to everyday wear and tear. Cracks, dings, and scratches can happen to your surfboard at any time. And while our bags can’t protect your board in the water, we’ll take care of it on dry land.
Your board isn’t meant to sit out in the sun for hours at a time, even when you're chasing waves. Prolonged UV exposure causes blistering, cracking, and yellowing, causing permanent damage and shortening its lifespan. So how to protect your surfboard from yellowing? All wrapped up in Faro, your board won’t yellow or age a minute, extending its life for years to come.
Taking a road trip with your friends? It’s tough to decide whether to throw your boards in the back of the truck or strap them to the top of your rig. Whatever you choose, Faro bags have you covered. You can stack boards on top of each other without transferring wax onto other boards. And you don’t need to worry about cracks, dings, or scratches on every turn, pothole, or dirt road that your journey takes you on.
Faro bags protect more than just your shortboards and fish shapes. They’ll keep excess sand and melted wax out of your car, truck, or van so you don’t have to constantly clean your rig. Plus, you won’t have to worry about your fins or leash velcro snagging on your vehicle’s interior.
Faro surfboard bags vs. any other board bag
Better than any surfboard sock on the market
Performance shortboards are fragile. And most surfboard socks just won’t cut it for everyday protection. On top of that, standard surfboard socks are :
- Are hard to carry
- Look terrible
- Stick to the wax and leash velcro
- Trap sand inside, just for it to fall out inside the car
- Make it hard to quickly slide the board in & out with the drawstring closure
That’s why our 6 foot bags are designed to move with your board while keeping timeless style, functionality, and sustainability front of mind.
We’re committed to building high-quality goods for surfers who value style, simplicity, and craftsmanship. Handmade in the Californias, these simplistic covers look great and function even better. And whether you’re cruising to your local beach or exploring a remote point break in an off-roader, Faro will be with you every step of the way – so long as you keep adventuring.
Tried & tested functionality
Most board socks are just fine; they’ll protect your board but there’s still plenty to be desired. But “just fine” isn’t good enough for us and it’s definitely not good enough for your quiver – we created bags that you’ll actually want to put your shortboard in.
Let’s start with the materials. Your wax and leash velcro won’t stick to the bag every time you try to slide your board in & out. The waterproof coating makes them more water and stain-resistant to whatever you throw at it. And if any sand or wax makes it into your bag, it’s easy to get out. No more washing or struggling to turn it inside out, just flip it over and let it fall out.
Now onto the daily use. No more switching arms every couple hundred steps, the adjustable shoulder strap helps you safely carry your boards to that secret, hard-to-get-to spot without breaking a sweat. And with an extra-wide opening, you’ll never have to worry about missing another chest-high set just because you couldn’t get your twin fin out in time.
Sustainably-made for conscious consumers & healthy oceans
Faro’s 6’ surfboard bags are designed in San Diego from recycled ocean plastic. And they’re built to last for conscious consumers. So instead of buying a new bag every time a zipper breaks or the stitching frays, we created bags that you’ll be stuck with for years. And as long as you protect your boards with Faro bags, they’ll last just as long.
We’re passionate about the oceans, that’s no surprise. But our passion extends far beyond surfing – we’re dedicated to protecting the waves that give us so much. That’s why, through our collaboration with SeaTrees, each board bag purchase helps restore kelp forests in Palos Verdes, California.
Frequently Asked Questions
What size bag should I get for my surfboard?
The 6 foot surfboard bags fit all boards that are 6’ or shorter, with an additional 3-5 inches for your mounted fins and wetsuit. For boards 6’1” or longer, check out our 7’ bags.
The 6 foot bags fit everything under 6’. And we mean everything. Want to swap out your 5’10” groveler for the 5’6”fish? Just tighten up the roll-top enclosure to prevent it from sliding around and you’re good to go. You won’t need multiple bags for your shorter shapes, one bag will do it all.
How wide are the bags?
The 6’ bags are 23” wide, more than enough to comfortably fit most shortboard shapes.
Will my fins fit?
Yes, keep your twin, thruster, or quad setups on your board. Don’t waste extra time when you get to the spot – just pull your board out and go.
Are surfboard bags worth it?
That depends, do you use protection for the other “important” things in life? Surfboard bags are an investment. And we think it’s worth spending a little bit extra to protect your quiver. Our boards mean everything to us and we want to ride them for a long, long time. Get yourself a Faro bag so you can spend more time in the water and less time worrying.
