Packing the essential things for traveling is always challenging. No matter how smart you are making the packing lists and careful in preparing them, sometimes there are still the items you are missed. And if the next holiday you have been planned to go in a surf camp trip and the camp itself have been reserved before, I think that it is important to know which things and items that you will need to pack especially when it is the first time for you.
Packing for traveling is vary. Each travel ideas have their own things to bring to support the activities. So does when you are deciding to pack for a surf camp trip that is truly different. You will need to prioritise the items and things that will be supporting your surfing activities when you have been at the surf camp destination.
But for your information, I will exclude the surfboard itself out of the packing for a surf camp trip list because it should have been provided by the surf camp provider. And when it is not, you’d better finds another travel operator especially when you are from long distance city or even from different country. Surfboard is pretty much heavy and you surely won’t bringing it all the way to the destination, will you? But feel free if you have to do that, risks are yours as well.
Packing list for your surf camp trip
I need to repeat myself where I believe that the best surf camp in the world should have been provided their students with the professional surfboard as necessarily need. So do the other gears that will be needed for practicing surfing. So, I will exclude them all from the list.
It is not just about that a surf camp is offering the course for the surfing enthusiasts, but when it is comes to practicing the theory and techniques you have been heard in the “class” before, surely that surfing itself need the required tools and gears. And that’s what we are going to talk about here besides the surfboard as I have been mentioned before.
So, what’s the other essential things and items to pack for a surf camp trip when it will be the first time for you?
– Small first aid kits and medications
Your are in fit condition and you think that the surf camp destination you are going to is no different with where you are living now. So, you think that you will be fine and nothing can ruin your health condition.
In reality, traveling can be exhausts us especially when the distance is pretty much longer. Not to mention that a surf practices themselves are possible to make you being injured.
While the surf camp provider itself is possible have been provided many necessary first aid kits and medications, you’d better bringing them all together by yourself because you are the one who really know the condition of your health. What if you have a certain health condition that being not known by the others?
– Pack the sun protections when you are in a surf camp trip
A surf camp trip will mostly held at the beach to start the course or class. If you think that you will really need to getting to know the surf knowledge while enjoying the hot sun, that will be great if your skin will be the sunburn-proof ones when it is not.
Pack your sunglasses and cap, the waterproof sunscreens as well since you will be practicing surfing after the hot sun in hearing session. You will also need the after sun lotion to protect your skin.
– You will need the footwear so much
Shoes are important and so do the socks that you will keep on packing them to bring in your surf camp trip. Beside those, flip flop will also never been this important and urgent since being at the beach is always better to wear the flip flop. The sturdy shoes itself will be needed when it comes to explore the beach surroundings, but you’d better researches about it first.
– Light and thin clothes for the day and the thick ones for the night
When it will be hot in a day while the surf camp accommodation itself is mostly will be at the beach, you will need to avoid being disturbed by the hit sun with the light and thin clothes as well as the light short pants.
In the night, beach can be cold and windy, so you’d better pack for the thick clothes as well. Think about bringing the boardshorts as well, you will really needs it to feel comfort and pretty much popular style at the beach.
All of the above essentials things to pack for a surf camp are actually general. They are far different with the surfboards, fins and the wetsuits that are truly important to bring. But I keep on not suggesting them ever since the surf camp operator mostly will have been provided you with those. That’s why choosing the best or better surf camp itself is also vital for your trip.
