Time for a surf trip? You bet ya!
With most travel restrictions now being lifted domestically and internationally, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand why so many people are jumping on their first opportunity to get back to their favorite overseas break, beach bungalow, or packing the van full of camp gear and throwing some boards on the roof for a coastal expedition.
Surfers generally love to travel, and nothing beats a good old fashion surf trip with your friends or family.
It is almost an Aussie tradition!
Packing the right equipment is just as important as packing a spare pair socks and undies when it comes to having a trouble-free adventure.
Easy you say!
Sun cream, Tick.
However, depending on where your travel takes you there are a few more items that can make or break your surf holiday.
Now, if you are planning a road trip it is fundamental that your boards arrive with you. Using your 10 year old leg rope to secure your quiver to the roof of your car just won’t cut the mustard on a long drive to your favorite camp ground or holiday house.
They also come in a convenient carry case to help keep the back of your surf wagon nice and tidy when they are not in use.
Also, it is worth noting that in some Australian states it is now a legal requirement to use proper webbing straps with a buckle to secure any vessels to your roof racks. Definitely worth checking this before hitting the road.

If you are traveling overseas or interstate by plane and have an “economy” sized rental car waiting for you. Don’t forget the soft racks!
We’ve been there! Only car available was a Fiat 500. Yes, stylish…but fat chance of fitting you and your two travel companions plus surfboards and luggage!
Impress your travel buddies when you whip out the Surflogic Single Soft Racks that can hold 3 boards securely on the roof. They didn’t even know you had them because of the compact size and sweet carry case keeping them together and ready for use. Even better, your economy sized rental car has now become the ultimate surf mobile!

So, you rock up in your rental to the break and it is pumping! Just what you were all hoping for. Boards are waxed, slip, slop and slapped… time to get in the water.
What do we do with the keys?
Everyone is keen to get in the water and no one wants to hang on the beach missing out on a minute in the surf.
The back tire or a bag on the beach is a risky move at an unknown location where theft may be more common than at your local.
Fear not, Surflogic has you covered.
Lucky you traveled with your Surflogic Key Safe Lockbox! Yes, you are that legend that saved the day.
It is small enough to fit in your luggage and not tip the scales at check in, while it is big enough to hold most keys. It also has a slot if the key shank is longer than the average.
