When it comes to learning how to plan a surf trip, packing correctly is right up there.
Different surf destinations call for different types of surf gear. What’s more, not all countries have the products that you might rely on back home.
Without going overboard, it pays to prepare a surf trip packing list. This should consist of not only what you need for the specific destination, but also surf trip essentials like wax, extra leg ropes and even medical supplies.
For example, a trip to Morocco might require you to bring Imodium tablets while a trip to Bali might mean packing mosquito repellent or antiseptic wipes for reef rash.
If in doubt, do your research. And remember that if worse comes to worst you can probably buy or borrow items from fellow surfers and surf shops.
