Growing up, I would never towel change into my wetsuit. Instead, I'd wear my boardshorts under my wetsuit which was never comfortable. However, it was better than the scene I always pictured of towel changing in a parking lot and having my towel fall off with tons of people around. But I finally gave it go one time and never looked back.
And now Ho Stevie is introducing 2 new surfing accessories centered around changing in and out of your wetsuit. The first being the Surf Poncho which keeps you warm, dries you off (after surfing) and prevents the accidental mooning of the parking lot. Constructed using a thick microfiber material, it's both extremely soft and dries quickly after being used.
Perhaps equally important is the brand new Ho Stevie wetsuit changing mat which protects your wetsuit all year long. If you're like me then changing out of your wetsuit happens in the parking lot where dirt, rocks and oil tend to collect. All of which make your wetsuit dirty and worn. Instead, change in and out of your wetsuit while standing on the changing mat which offers a barrier and turns into a dry-bag at the end of your surf session. It'll keep your car clean, while protecting your wetsuit! What more do you want?
Surfing is a sport that requires a few investment pieces (surfboard, wetsuit etc.) to participate. By utilizing some surf accessories like the Surf Poncho and Wetsuit Changing Mat, you can protect your investment and ensure a extended life for all. Cheers!
