The obligatory swimsuit
There is no doubt about it, the boardshort and the bikini are the first items you will put in your luggage before leaving. You most likely won't forget this item, but if you had enough of the old bathing suit you wore all the time last summer, we invite you to take a look at our fresh variety of swimwear for men and women. From unique patterns to abstract designs, one-piece to bikini and waterproof to elastic materials, we've just received a huge variety of swim suits that will fulfill all your beach needs on every level. For your next tropical getaway or for the upcoming summer, a new bathing suit will never be useless.
Because finding yourself sunburnt in the first days of your adventure could really put a mortgage on the surf and chill days you have left, it's essential to get a quality sunscreen that is adapted to your activities when you are outside. In addition to being quite damaging to the skin, sunburns can become extremely uncomfortable and are usually gnarlier when in the water because of the reflexion of solar rays, bouncing back straight in your face. For this particular reason, we have sunscreens made specifically for people who like to go from water to the beach and from the beach to the water all day without worrying about the sun's heavy rays.
Your own Beach towel
A beach item that is too often forgotten when traveling: The beach towel. To avoid having to rely on the small piece of towel from your hotel or even your girlfriend's towel, get yours and dump it straight in your luggage. After surfing, you will appreciate the feeling of drying up and will feel comfortable before heading back to your beach house or to the local bar. We have a great selection of classic beach towels so you never have to feel sticky from saltwater after a session, or feel dusty from the sand you slept on all day.
