No, this article is not going to feature any coffee mugs, instead:

Here you will find a list of essential surfing accessories to get the most out of your favourite hobby – SURFING. If you are the type of person who desires only the best extras in everything they do – then this article is especially for you. It is also a guide that will help to choose a gift for your friend.


The most elementary accessory you can have is a surf changing towel. No need to explain the necessity of that. It’s a two in one combo: dry your body after a session and get changed the same time. Definitely, an elementary accessory when you are into surfing or any other water-related sports. Just pull it over and you are done, don’t need to fiddle around between your opened car doors or changing somewhere in the bush. You need it especially after a long and cold session, where your body is really struggling to get that wetsuit off and you are about to flash your body parts. One of those things you don’t like to buy yourself, but expect others to get it for you.

Another great way to step out of your wet and dripping wetsuit into a clean mat. Don’t need to worry about the small rocks inside your wetsuit next time you put it on. Essential for our brothers and sisters surfing the cold water with a wetsuit. After you have got out of the wetsuit, you just simply dry your feet and put on your shoes and socks without carrying the sand everywhere. And to make things better, you can simply dump the wetsuit into the wetsuit bag and walk away. We all know that when you surf – you’ll find wet clothes and sand everywhere around your home and car, so this product will definitely save your girlfriends/boyfriends nerves. A must have accessory.

Good to store the wetsuit or boardshorts on your backpack. Those bags are generally with extra pockets – where you could store all the accessories like the wax, wax-comb, sunscreen, bottle of water, fin key, home and car keys and all the rest you need. And whoever is into snorkelling, diving, spearfishing or why not surf photography, you can attach the fins in between the top clips. I always use this bag to chuck all the wetsuit and boots, hoodie and everything wet in there after the surf. And once you get home, you can simply fill the whole bag with water to rinse out the salt from inside the belongings.

Rubber earplugs in general help to prevent any ear infections in the surf, and they also protect your ears drums in heavy surf. There is also something about that silenced around you wearing those. We know that surf can be quite loud and messy. And don’t worry – you can still hear your mates when wearing those earplugs. I’ve seen many people use the wired earplugs as well. As we have one pair of eyes and one pair of ears, that are very prone to any damage – I would strongly recommend using these. A healthy accessory.

beach cruiser reviewA BEACH CRUISER

A beach cruiser bicycle is definitely the best out of the list. A person, who has never ridden a beach cruiser bicycle never before does not know what riding a bicycle with comfort means. This beach cruiser has everything you could ask from a simple single-speed bicycle. Also, the price is between one-to-two hundred dollars. That’s a hell of a bike for that amount of the bike. Best suited for somebody who is going slow and for occasional short rides. But, I’ve made an extensive article about keen cyclists, who want to Cruise for a long time.
