Going on a surf trip, there are important basics that we all know to take. A wetsuit is handy, as is a board and a tonne of Mr Zog’s Sex Wax!
But there are always more things to remember than you think, and some surf essentials that even the most weathered surfers sometimes find themselves without!
The only way to create the definitive list of surf accessories that you need to live in the water, is to live as a surfer, so we’ve asked Abi Carver, yoga and surf extraordinaire and the creator of the awesome Yoga15, to make us a list of the accessories only a surfer would know about.
“I’m writing from Rapture Surf Camp in Padang Padang, Bali – taking a recovery day to nurse some vicious reef cuts on my toes and an impressive bruise on my inner thigh” says Abi.
“I’ve come with a seasoned surf camp pro so we’ve been pretty well-equipped for the trip but there are definitely a few things that have really come in useful that I wouldn’t necessarily have thought of. Here are 15 of the most crucial!”
