Men's Summer Gear Guide

The Surfer’s Go-To Summer Gear Guide

Surely, one of the best times to be a surfer is here. Summer means post-work sessions, warmer temps with tepid waters, new swell direction and dormant locals lighting up. Wetsuits are dried and retired from their long, hard winter run. Wetsuit jackets and boardshorts fill the lineups. The all-day Saturday session returns. In short, it’s hard to beat.

But – a day at the beach or that dreamy summer session is only made good with the right gear. Comfortable boardshorts, flexible neoprene, soft surf tees and all the gear needed to get it there. Luckily, our Ultimate Summer Gear Guide is here to make it easy. Explore our best-selling summer products from hybrid Boardwalks, Surf Series accessories, Mirage Boardshorts, E-Bomb Jackets and plenty more - it’s your one-stop-shop for that perfect Summer session.
