How to prepare for your next surf holiday to Double Island Point!
It’s nice to be able to get out and catch Australia’s longest beginner waves with a brand new view over the coloured sands, especially if you’re traveling with friends. Heading to a new location for a surf holiday can be fun, but it always pays to come prepared whenever you’re visiting a place you’ve never been before. We’ve got you covered with a handy guide to help you plan ahead and live your holiday to its fullest!
The most essential part of any holiday prep is making sure you have everything you need for the surf trip. The good part it, you barely have to bring a thing! We supply you with all of the equipment, including boards, wetsuits, rash tops, etc! The Australian sun is very strong, so remember to be sun safe and SLIP SLOP SLAP with sunscreen, a hat and of course your swimsuit and towels.
Beat the holiday “lag”
What we mean by this is prepare for the increase in walking whenever you go on a trip, not just a surf holiday. People always get caught off guard at just how much their feet end up hurting when going on a trip to a new place and they want to see and do as much possible. Just start training your legs and feet by implementing a walking regimen as soon as you can before you trip.
Prepare to eat and drink
Exercising your belly is almost as important as your workouts. The best thing you can do before a trip is eat healthy and fill your gut with good probiotic bacteria. Traveling will always come with increased challenges for your stomach, especially if you’re someone who eats a pretty steady diet at home.
Another thing you should be mindful of is how much weight you might lose from all the surfing you’re going to do in combination with all the walking. Those calories will burn off you real fast, so don’t be afraid to bulk up a little bit before you leave for our surf holiday.
The last, but most important tip is to ALWAYS bring WATER with you! You are exercising in the sun, hydrating your body is essential to keep your energy levels high.
These tips, along with some essential traveler/tourist tips will go a long ways towards your overall enjoyment. Stay safe and have fun catching those waves!
