It seems a bit of a rivalry has sprung up in the Hamptons over surfboard storage. To gain the glory of its former self, The Montauk Yacht Club’s remodeled Surf Shack boasts the storage of Bon Jovi’s son and an heir to the Estee Lauder estate among those who now store their boards at the surf shack. And even though it’s No. 1 competitor, The Surf Lodge, is doing swimmingly well, The Montauk Yacht Club hopes to attract the celebrities as well as keeping the atmosphere a family-friendly place.
But if you don’t walk among the rich and famous, here are a few tips to store your board in between your attempts to hang 10:
- Rinse your board in fresh water before storing
- Store horizontally. Most popularly, over head
- Store out of the sun and out of hot places. You can search StorageFront by accommodation, i.e. air conditioned units.
