Stab Recommends: Rocking Up To Day of the Year in a Matching Tracksuit
Among other things.
Surfers used to be sartorial pioneers.
From August and Hynson suited up in pursuit of the Endless Summer to psychedelic Bunker draped in fur, Bugs channelling Jagger, Kong's glove through the fluro 80s, baggy 90s and whatever we were all up to in the 00s. These days we look good but it's, well, a bit dull. Which is why the Birwdwell tracksuit below thrilled us so. Are we brave enough to rock it? Well, only time and Birdwell's promo policy will tell. Here's five great ways to blow your dosh:
Birdwell Beach, Tracksuits?
Pull into the carpark at your local on day of the year wearing one of these, unsheathe a craft, pull into (and preferably get spat out of) the wave of the day, and we guarantee you'll cement yourself as a part of local folklore.
The Case For The 2-Board Quiver
We love surfboards. However, we also love traveling light and therefore we understand the temptation to bring only one board on a trip. This boardbag is the perfect compromise. Light, sleek and durable with room for two.
Signature Stab x Eithan Oz Shin Protector
If you've the ability to waft tail with shins in tact sans grip then power to ya, for the rest of us who need a little rubber assurance that we're not going to end up Mick Fanning 2.0, we made a grip with a couple of chums. And black, always.
Kicks Crafted for the Open Road
Travelling with multiple pairs of shoes is bulky and impractical. Lace up a pair of fresh Vans Ultras before you get to the airport and the only time you'll have to take them off is when you're in the drink.
A Tested Tee Formula
We've exhausted all options when it comes to T-shirts. Just like a pleasant sounding four chord combination, a white tee with nice, off-set type still trumps far more complex designs. Banks knows.
