Stand Up Paddling is one of the fastest growing beach activities in recent memory. It’s fun, it’s easy and it gets you out there even when the wave machine shuts off entirely (ie. our whole last month in SoCal!) Since summer is in full swing and people are hitting up their local bodies of water with boards and paddles in hand, I thought I’d let you folks in on some crucial SUP accessories that I have personally scoped out. Here’s my list of the 5 best SUP accessories for this season:
Be prepared for the worst with the SUP survival PFD (personal floatation device). This bugger inflates with a rip cord and CO2 cartridge just like those fancy ones on the airplane. Besides giving you some added security, it also includes a zip pocket for securely stashing your keys, fishing license, sunscreen or shades.
In certain harbors or beaches, the water patrol will require you to carry a PFD anyways so why not cover all your bases with this compact lifesaving device. Otherwise you can lug around a heavy foam jacket or risk getting a ticket.
During extended sweeping sessions your feet are sure take a thrashing. Pruney, sunburnt feet are standard, and when you add rocks, urchins or coral in the mix it’s never good for your lower digits.
The Xcel 1mm split toe boots give the most sensitive of feet full protection without being overly cumbersome. They are lightweight, breath well and help you stick to your board. Shoots!
The Quiksilver Waterman Poly Pro zip Paddle jacket is perfect for all types of Paddling. The cut is slightly looser with a crew neck so it’s breathable and non-constricting. A full zipper at front allows you to zip it down when it gets hot, or zip it up when the onshores start blowing.
This jacket is made from a water wicking, poly pro material that blocks out both harmful UV rays and chilly ocean breezes. Like a lot of the Waterman line the Zip Paddle Jacket also includes a handy utility pocket at back perfect for sunscreen, ipod , ham sandwich or anything else you need to keep closeby.
The FCS SUP leash is the only stand up paddle leash that combines elements of both a standard leash and a coiled SUP leash. Unlike other leashes out there the FCS SUP leash features a non-coiled end that extends over your board. This means less tangles and no more tripping over a bunched up leash end close to your feet.
Whether you are surfing your stand up or taking it on a marathon paddle, the Dakine traction will keep you glued to your board and feel great under your feet.
The specially formulated EVA won’t add a bunch of weight to your board and will help absorb the shocks caused by rough seas and choppy waters. A lot like the cushions in your shoes, the Dakine deck pad will offer a more comfortable ride especially for extended sessionss
