Whilst Stab’s pals in the land of liberty are either revelling in or regretting their 4th of July choices, Australian surfers are dealing with harsh winter winds and hangovers spent in the back of a utility vehicle. We’ve all been there, a winter mission with one can of baked beans, only the crust of wonder bread and two cooked sausages from last night’s campfire dinner. Now it’s 5 am, you’re up before the sun and you’re going to stay up because come first light you’re jumping in the water. But first, all you have to do is muster up the courage to swing open the van doors, step out into the chill and fire up the kettle. 

To combat the bite of winter, we’ve selected you five items for under $100. Ever been dressed from head-to-toe by grown men behind computer screens? Sound creepy? Maybe it is.
