Surfline - 10 Essential items for your next surf trip
There’s a scene in Bruce Brown’s Endless Summer II in which the film’s stars, Pat O’Connell and Robert “Wingnut” Weaver, are packing for their globe-trotting journey. Wingnut keeps his belongings neat and orderly, while O’Connell simply crams everything he owns into his boardbag, wrinkly t-shirts and all.
Whichever strategy you apply when prepping your gear for a surf trip, packing can be a nightmare. Did you remember your passport? Did you properly cushion your surfboards? Did you bring enough surf wax? It’s a stress-inducing process that almost takes away from the unstressful act of going on a surf trip (key word: almost). Bottom line, packing is a necessary evil; but how you deal with it is entirely up to you.
