Ding repair

It is never a fun thing to get dings on your board, especially if you are far from home and your repair tools and ding shop. But if it happens, it’s good to be prepared with a repair kit!

Dry bag

A dry bag is a great thing to bring with you to keep your stuff dry in wet conditions. It’s also great for the opposite purpose: keep your wet swimwear in the bag to protect your other stuff from getting wet and damaged.

And of course; your favorite surfboards

Last but definitely not least, your surfboards! Whether you’re ripping with a shortboard or having fun in smaller summer waves on a longboard, your board is your partner in crime and best pall in the waves!
