Summer Essentials

With the weather forecasts showing sunshine for the next 2 weeks maybe now is the time to get excited for long beach days and the smell of the BBQ burning away*

*disclaimer - we cannot guarantee the weather forecast to be correct.

We have a great range of summer essentials for both surfers and sun lovers.

Summer surfboards

In the UK and especially in Devon, surfing in the summer usually means one thing: weak waves and big crowds. This makes it vital to have the correct board to deal with this. There are a few options that you just cannot go wrong with in the summer weather you are a beginner or an experienced surfer.

  • SWELLY - not great for progressive surfing but you will catch all of the waves and you cant not have a good time on one in the sun.
  • MINI MAL/ LOG - More progressive than a swelly and great for improving surfers but will be a big investment if you are only going to be using it when its too small for your normal surfboards
  • HYBRID SHORTBOARD - This style of surfboard is becoming more and more popular with all the brands adding them into their summer surfboard lineups. Shorter, wider and thicker. If you don't like the idea of your board not fitting in the car this is the option for you.
  • BODYBOARD - With our bodyboards starting from just €30 this is a great way to experience getting into the surf for the first time without breaking the bank. If you are anything like us it wont be long untill you are back to upgrade to one of the above.


The sun may be out but this unfortunately does not mean we can get away with surfing in Boardies in the UK. This makes your wetsuit purchase as important as your board. We have kids wetsuits in stock from €45 and adult sizes starting from €100. When choosing your wetsuit come in and chat to us, we can explain all the different technologies and size you up for the perfect fit.


We all know the importance of looking after our skin, but finding a product that is good in and out of the water can be challenging. The SexWax range has been tested by surfers all over the world and by us as well. Great for surfing or sunning, its a product I trust to protect my face.


We have the accessories you will need to make it through this summer, from beach bags and flip flops to caps, sunnies and Mango Brand water bottles. From Roy, Reef, Globe, Volcom, DC, Nectar and many more why would you need to shop anywhere else?


If you don't have a white t-shirt on, is it really summer? If you are not able to make it to our shop in Plymouth all these product are also on our website, you can find that here: or click and of the pictures above to go straight to them.
