2 | The Digs Changing Poncho Best surfer products

Where to Buy: Slowtide

Once you’re sufficiently tuckered out from a day of catching waves, it’s time to strip down. Changing in and out of your wetsuit has never been easier thanks to this genius poncho from Slowtide. Forget searching for a private spot to slip out of your wet skivvies, as this cozy, terry cloth coverall will keep you warm while you change in public—and it’s so roomy, you’ll never risk a wardrobe malfunction.


3 | Activated Recovery Cream

Where to Buy: CURE by Dr. Benya

Salty ocean water can majorly dry out skin, so be sure to slather on some Activated Recovery Cream from Dr. Benya’s skincare line. Infused with cactus and yeast extracts to soothe dry and irritated skin, the enzymes and ceramics in this specialty formula are specifically designed to restore the skin’s natural barrier.

To prevent long-term wear and tear on the skin that can lead to accelerated aging, make a habit of adding Power Necessity, also from the Dr. Benya line at CURE, to your post-surf skincare routine. Designed with rejuvenating anti-aging properties and antioxidants to protect against UV-ray damage and increase collagen production, this serum prevents fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.

Let’s not forget about hair care. Maintain those salty au naturel beach waves long after you’ve left the sand with Ouai Wave Spray. This sea-salt spray will keep your mermaid vibes going strong all day long—plus, it smells amazing.

In need of a boost of hydration? Stop by Malibu Farm in Malibu or Newport Beach for a fresh post-surf juice. Try an agave lemonade, kale apple, watermelon or even a carrot-beet-orange beverage blend to keep you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated while on the go.
