Be Ready for the Beach with This Gear
Beach Basics for your Next Tropical Vacation
Enhance your next trip to the ocean with these 6 items.
It’s not hard to pack for a day at the beach, but optimizing your gear for the ultimate tropical adventure is a whole different animal. We take out the guess work with these six tested and true items that make your next journey to paradise as seamless as possible so you can focus on the epic waves, not your epic sunburn.
PROOF THAT FORM AND FUNCTION GO WELL TOGETHER
Seea Swimwear Bondi Surf Suit
Any woman who has participated in open-ocean sports, whether it be an afternoon of laid-back snorkeling or taking your first surf lesson in turbulent conditions, knows that it can be difficult to make your suit stay put. Seea takes wardrobe malfunctions out of the equation with this form-flattering one-piece that will not only let you perform your best, but protect you from the sun (UPF rating 30-50) and angry corals at the same time. There are a huge assortment of options but we love this long-sleeve version in a go-with-everything Mandala design.
PACK LESS ON YOUR NEXT TRIP WITH THESE SHORTS
Billabong Men's Crossfire X Twill Submersibles
Men, we haven’t forgotten about you! Make your life, and especially packing your bags, easier with this versatile short from Billabong. Built with water repellant coating and stretchy twill fabric, these submersibles wear just as easily in the water as they do through the airport. With a couple pairs of these in your duffel, you’re prepared for whatever adventures come your way on your next tropical vacation. No one will even be able to tell you haven’t washed them all week.
LEAVE NO TRACE THE NEXT TIME YOU’RE IN THE OCEAN
Australian Gold Botanical Sunscreen
The health of the sea should be at the forefront of everyone’s mind, but it’s easy to overlook the ways we can contribute on a day to day basis. Start with this reef-safe sunscreen from Australian Gold. Free of parabens, sulfates, oils, and dyes, this SPF 50 lotion is a powerhouse when it comes to keeping both you and the environment safe. Water resistant for up to 80 minutes, you’ll be able to play all day without worry.
PACK SMART WITH THESE WATERPROOF BAGS
Aloha Collection Travel Bag
Beach totes are great, but on a long-haul trip it’s better to bring along something that doubles as a smart packing tool. Enter the splash-proof bags from Aloha. They come in a variety of fun colorways and sizes so that you can organize your suitcase on the way to your destination and then easily transition them into beach-ready bags for daily adventures. You’ll never leave your sunglasses, sunblock, or hotel key behind again.
PROTECT YOUR PEEPERS WITH THESE STYLISH SUNNIES
Smith Longfin Chromapop Sunglasses
Smith is a tried and true brand in the outdoor world, and they’ve had plenty of experience testing what styles work best for when you’re on the water. Their solution to glare and harsh rays are the Longfin Chromapop sunglasses. With anti-reflective and polarized lenses, smart side shields for added protection, and of course temple and nose pads to prevent slippage, these are our go-to sunnies for the beach. Just don’t forget your Croakies for floating power and keeping them on your head!
CAPTURE EVERY MOMENT WITH THE GOPRO HERO7
GoPro HERO7 Camera
If there’s one action cam that knows how to make a splash, it’s a GoPro. We love their new HERO7 with awesome touch screen capability and 4K HD video. You’ll experience gimbal-like stabilization for smooth-as-butter footage, and be able to control your camera hands-free with voice control. Needless to say, you won’t miss a moment with this powerful camera in your tool kit! We recommend the GoPro Handler floating grip for most almost all water sports as the perfect functional accessory.
