    Top 5 picks for summer 15


    With the warm weather upon us and holidays on the horizon, it’s time to think about those all-important essentials to make sure you get the most out of your holiday!

    We’ve picked out five essentials which we feel is a must for any beach holiday.

    holidayshop_11 Flip flops -

    Whether you’re walking through the airport terminal, exploring the local towns or just relaxing on the beach, flip flops are the ideal footwear. We have a wide variety of flip flops to suit any occasion.
    You may have even heard about the Sanuks (back in by popular demand don’t you know), they are super comfy (made from yoga mats) and a favourite here in the Boardriders office!


    If you’re looking for first time flip flops for the kids that are practical, look good and will stay on, check out the Reefs, sizes 5 right up to 10 come with a back strap so are guaranteed to stay on!

    2 UV Tops -

    Planning on getting in the water, but don’t fancy a wetsuit? No problem, check out the range of UV rash tops available. We have a wide range of colours and styles to suit everyone. Worried it’s going to be too tight? Surf Tees are quite popular amongst our customers, whys that you ask? They are exactly as it seems, a t-shirt style top that offers the UV protection your skin needs (UPF 50+) and won’t cling to you so you can wear it on the beach or out and about. O’Neill offers a variety of different colours in this style.


    Protect your little nippers from those UV rays, with 50+ UPF protection sunsuits. These are great for the beach or pool as they won’t irritate and give them the freedom they need to still play in the sand or run in the waves. We have a variety of brands available which offer that all important protection.

    3. Bodyboards -

    A fun, safe and easy way to enjoy the art that is wave riding. We all started body boarding when young before moving onto surfing and still do from time to time! There are some awesome colours to check out in our body boarding section.

    Remember the bodyboard you choose all depends on your weight and height, so if you’re not too sure what would be best, give us a call (01273 420142) and we’ll pop you in the right direction.



    4 Sunglasses -

    Of course, the essential of all essentials, great for daily wear wherever you may be. There is a range of brands with a range of prices to protect your eyes. The Vans and Santa Cruz sunnies are a personal fave, but if you want something that more robust then check out the Von Zipper range, these come in some pretty bright colours.



    5. Swimwear -

    Finally, last but by no means least, swimwear. With so many brands and styles, you’re spoilt for choice! O’Neill offer a quirky mix and match range so you can chop and change to suit your mood and Quiksilver have a range of boardies to suit your style.

    swimwearSo there you have it! Make sure your adventure is an epic one with the help of our 5 item guide.
