The Best Accessories
For A Winter Surf
When it comes to surfing, many people mistakenly think that it is purely something to enjoy in the summer. There are, however, some great places you can head to over the winter months and catch some awesome waves. From the East coast of Bali to Australia and Costa Rica, there is always somewhere on the planet to enjoy board sports. Even if you plan to surf close to home when it’s colder, it can still be done in the wintertime. Of course, it is key to pack the right gear when you do so in order to have the best time.
But what are the best accessories for an awesome winter surf?
One essential accessory to pack is definitely surfboard leashes. These are a vital piece of safety gear which keep you and other riders protected when out in the ocean. They not only stop you having to swim and rescue your board each time you ditch but also keep your board from hitting other people if you do come off. Leashes come in different thicknesses and lengths so make sure to pick the type you prefer.
Surfboard Ponchos & Towels
This is one of the best surfing accessories you can pack for winter surfing. Surf ponchos and towels are not only to help make changing easier when outside but also provide much-needed warmth from winter chills when doing so. This is especially true when you come back in from your surf and don a comfy poncho to warm up again.
As well as getting you dry and warm, they help make changing in public less embarrassing! Towels are also a handy accessory to have with you too so you can dry off your hair, body and face properly before getting into your normal clothes. Both are certainly worth packing for any winter surf session.
Surf Travel Packs & Bags
Although you will travel pretty light to the beach when surfing, you will still need something to carry essentials in. This is where surf travel packs and bags come in. These handy products allow you to carry important items like mobile phones, keys and wallets to the beach in total style. They also give a secure place to store them when out catching the winter surf. You can find them in many colours and styles now so picking the one you like is not a problem.
Surf Repair Kits
Although you will hopefully not need them, it is wise to pack surfboard repair kits for your board and wetsuit. This means you can perform simple repairs if either gets damaged when you’re out and you can carry on surfing. In terms of wetsuit repair, it is wise to look out for products which contain neoprene and are simple to use. For surfboard repairs, products like repair putty are a lifesaver. These are easy to apply and will mean you can head out on your board again when dry. There are also other more in-depth epoxy or polyester kits which you could use for surfboard repair when back at base with more time.
