Surfers Gear Guide: Beach Day Must-Haves

Lounging on the shore post-surf session is part of the experience, and it helps to have all the beach essentials on hand to make it easy. For us, that means a comfy spot to sit; the right products for protecting our skin and eyes; a cooler to handle refreshments (that isn’t too hard to handle); and a few more must-haves.
