Boardriders from all around the world have been celebrating International Surfing Day this week so we thought we’d get involved too. What better way to celebrate the waves and our favourite playground than to give you our top five picks on how to ace your next surf. From boards to wetsuits we can make sure you celebrate in style.
Stay warm and get changed in any situation with the Dryrobe Advance Short Sleeve Poncho.
A must have for any surfer, at any level surfing in any temperature water. Surfers are used to the frosty carpark being their changing room and although we should now be well and truly into the summer months the water isn’t showing any signs of warming up. If you’re lucky enough to hit the sweet spot and can surf in your thinnest, summer wetsuit when you trek to the coast the Dryrobe will also serve you as a quick change facility when the actual changing rooms are full.
Made with synthetic lambswool designed to draw the water away from you so you’ll be dry in no time at all. It’s also has a 100% waterproof and windproof outer shell so you don’t have to lug back any wet towels after a session in the water.
Paddle out with the most stylish board with the MR Retro Twin FCS II Surfboard.
Throwback Thursday rings a bell with this board. This board by Mr Surfboards has a PU with 6oz x 6oz x 4 oz glass job construction and a relatively flat retro rocker. This board’s a dream to paddle, with lots of area and volume forward of the mid-point, a pulled-in tail for hold through turns, and a straight-ish rail line providing additional drive. It also looks awesome.
Suitable for beginner to intermediate riders.
- Rails: Retro hard rails
- Tail: Winged swallow
- Fin Set-Up: Twin Fin
- Fin System: FCS II
Wax your surfboard without harming the environment with Matunas Organic Surf Wax

It’s non-toxic, biodegradable and made from locally sourced ingredients from Santa Cruz, California. Made with organic jasmine wax for instant bumps for extra traction and it’s wrapped up in recycled paper printed with soy ink
