We all know the concept of a backpack, But what makes a surf backpack so special? The advantage of it lies in the fact that it is waterproof. This is super handy if you don’t have time to dry your wetsuit properly and need to take it home wet. The waterproof nature of a surf backpack means you can easily take your wetsuit with you, and not leave a trail of salt water or sand behind you.
Having said that, it also works the other way around. Perhaps, you need to keep your belongings dry while you go out surfing. You can keep your wetsuit on for your ride home, your surf bag on your back, and know it will all be dry when you reach your destination. Besides surfing, your surf backpack can join you while SUP’ing, canoeing, or on boat excursions. Let’s not forget how useful it is on Dutch rainy days. In short, your belongings stay dry in all weather conditions!
