There are just a couple of items you need to surf. But as surfing grows, we are fed more and more surf essentials, so we are going to independently review and in some case test some items. We used to do things like this in out of the blue in the magazine, but this is a far better way to get things over.
Everything we test is considered an essential, we're not going to test things that are not, think robes, changing matts etc. They are extras, essentials are wetsuits, boots, gloves, hoods, leashes, wax, boards, deck grip and the like. All of it is impartial, and whilst we will link to the companies, we have zero commercial gains and will tell it exactly like it is.
We'll add the odd extra special post, reviewing things like action cams, but these are obviously not essentials, likewise books as well. Anything you'd like us to check out just drop us a line.
Anything that fits in with the sustainable/enviro friendly tag will also be on here, but will also be on the sustainable surfer.
