Labor Day is around the corner and it’s time to gear up for summer’s last hurrah. We went through and picked out the best swag to help you make the most of your 3 day weekend and close down the season with a bang!
1) Billabong Chiller Wetty Bucket
The Chiller Wetty Bucket is part change mat, part dry bag, part cooler and ALL ready for a good time! Load it up with drinks in the AM, cash them off at the beach and then use it to change out of and store your soggy trunks at the end of the day. It will keep your beach beverages cold and your car organized. Brilliant!!
Nothing is more crucial for Labor Day than a solid beach towel. However TowelSafe ups the ante with 3 convenient storage pockets built right into a hefty 30 x 60 inch cotton terry beach companion. Store your cell phone, keys and wallet out of the sand and out of your drenched boardies. It’s a must for busy beaches with potential thieves or your occasional high tide splash.
Lounging is fun and all, but if it’s flat you’ll need something to do in between coldies. A game of Paddle Ball or frisbee will get you up out of your beach chair and rallying across the sand. It’ll give you some added entertainment and maybe even an excuse to bump into that bombshell strolling the beach.
With so many hours in the sun your skin is sure to take a thrashing. If you plan to be in and out of the water all day (and who doesn’t?) then the Vertra face stick will keep you covered. The SPF 50 formula is tough, effective, and will prevent your nose from peeling off like a red onion.
More often than not Labor day hits with barely a ripple in water. Most people write off surfing altogether without considering the alternatives. Enter the Odysea Log by Catch Surf. This beasty soft top will have everyone from beginners to seasoned vets charging the surf no matter what King Neptune dishes out -big or small.
Spent one to many hours in the sun baking that lobstery hide of yours? Well Sun Bum’s Cool Down products will help you out heaps. These lotions sooth the skin and speed up sunburn recovery so you can still hit the bars even after a marathon skin scorching session. Gingers rejoice, pasty kids cheer, Sun Bum lotions save the day!
The HEX team just added one of surfing’s top names with the signing Eric Geiselman. Just like HEX products, Eric has developed cutting edge style and precise yet progressive lines.
“Eric is the man, and having known him for quite sometime I couldn’t be more stoked to finally bring him into our program,” said Carl Steindler, marketing manager at HEX. “Not only is the guy always smiling, but he seems to be good at anything he does and within those pursuits he’s constantly embracing technology. Those facts, coupled with his amazing surfing ability make him the perfect person to represent the HEX brand and be a true ambassador for us.”
When we say we have the world’s best boardshorts, we mean it. Katin is the sponsor and preferred active-wear of the USA Olympic Water Polo team. Southern California being a breeding ground polo stars, the Huntington Beach based surf company was proud to support these 14 London-bound American Olympians all born and raised in California beach towns. Most of the boys grew up in the South LA Bay seeing lifeguards and waterman wearing these Katin trunks that have over 60 years for research and development.
(L to R) Team USA led by Tony Azevedo (middle). Chay Lapin, Janson Wigo, Shea Buckner and Andy Stevens train in Katin gear.
The boys have been training with Katin’s new line of performance sport-cut shorts and signature Team USA tops, all available at SWELL. A portion of the proceeds benefit the team in their campaign to bring a gold medal back home. Support team USA by rocking the Olympic themed tees and following our hometown heroes starting Sunday July 29.
