Surf Trip Packing List

Your next surf holiday is just around the corner, and you need to get packing. Don’t worry, we’ll help you get ready! We’ve summarised everything you need to think about and pack for your surf trip in a practical, easy-to-read surf holiday packing list:

1. Surfboard including leash (although you can also rent the complete set-up at many spots).

2. Surfboard sock or board bag.

3. Surf poncho or dryrobe.

4. Suitable surf wax for the water temperature of the destination.

5. Surf bikini or board shorts and a rashguard in summer or a thick wetsuit, thickness depending on water temperature, including a cap and gloves.

6. Surf boots for surf spots with a sharp rocky or reef sea bottom.

7. Sun protection for surfing – extra high, waterproof and environmentally friendly.

8. Surf first aid kit – waterproof plasters, ointment and disinfectant.

9. Key lock – keep your car keys safe while you’re in the water.

10. A clothesline – you can set it up and take it down again at every spot, and it’s super handy for drying your wetsuit, bikini or poncho.

11. A surf guide with tips on all the spots in the region you are visiting.

12. Download a surf forecast app to keep an eye on the conditions: waves, wind and swell.
