Stab Recommends: 5 Miscellaneous, Surf-Based Items

There's been internal discussions that we don't push enough "hardware."

The point was counteracted with, "But do you actually love any of your hardware", which progressed into a dull conversation of which leashes everyone liked best (Ocean and Earth, all the way). Short of a Stab Recommends: Five Basically Identical Leashes, we rounded up a few things, old and new, that are on high rotation in the cars and wetsuit buckets of those who populate Stab HQ. Dive in. 

Roark Rugger

The rugby shirt fell by the sartorial wayside thanks to its association with foppish English private schoolboys, but we shouldn't have been so quick to cast it aside. Thicker than a tee but not as bulky as a sweat, this tasteful striped number from Roark is perfect for those in-between days that perpetuate the life of a surfer.

Tally ho.

 

 

 

The Original Fun Boy's Signature Grip

It's a shame Australians can't become "Sirs" anymore because we'd like to nominate Taj Burrow for "services to showing others how to have a good old time." Let's face it, the practicality of grips is universal, so choosing one's a popularity contest. In our office it's TB every time. 

Live like Teebs.

 

 

 

 

A Fine Rubber Offering

When Vissla sprung out of the ground wetsuits were at the top of the agenda, and it shows. The 7 Seas is their latest (petroleum free) neoprene offering and has all the stretch, warmth and durability you could possibly desire. The tastefully decorated outer with minimal branding is a bonus. 

Try something new.

 

Black Trunks With A Twist

RVCA always have a few great pairs of black trunks in rotation, and these are the current pick. Love the simple design with a little Brain Dead twist.

Just in time for summer (or a Central run, for our comrades in the N hemi)

Skate Tech In a Surf Shoe

Vans have been at the forefront of skate shoe design since '66, so when they decide to pour all that know how into a wetsuit boot, we listen. The fact that they're handsome as hell is the cherry next to the pie. 

Upgrade your rubber shoe game.
