The Surfboard Grooming Kit

Although there’s a good chance that if you’re reading this you’re probably somewhere that’s below freezing right now, but if Instagram and Facebook are any indication, there are quite a few of you right now who are somewhere with surf, sand and sun. Panama, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Australia and Fiji are just a few of the places that we’ve come across while surfing through our social media feeds in the past few days. If you’re one of those lucky few surfers who are soaking up some rays or if you’re about to venture off on sunny vacation in the middle of this horrid winter, then you should look into getting the Surfboard Grooming Kit.

This handy kit is a collaboration between Make Co., Archive and Studio Point, and it just happens to be, as the website refers to it, “the most sophisticated maintenance kit for your surfboard on the planet.” Here’s what you get with it: a Bronze and Brazilian Lapacho waxcomb, a black cotton cloth, a bar of wax and a small bottle of methyl hydrate so that you can clean off any residue left behind from the wax. Not only does the waxcomb have a leather lanyard so you can tote it around with ease, it also comes with your standard grooves and a scraper, it also comes with something every surfer, no matter what level, needs — a bottle opener, so that you can enjoy a nice, ice-cold bottle of beer after you’re finished tending to your surfboard. Oh and did we mention that if you want to get this kit you have to act fast? It comes in a limited edition of 25. So go for it and get it, so that you’ll have everything you need for your surfboard in order to catch that big wave.

Surfing is a freaking way of life. If you’ve ever met a hardcore surfer, odds are you wanted to swap lives with him, or at the very least become his BFF. That’s because these guys and gals live and breathe the lifestyle— from the way they style (or don’t style) their hair, to the beach “shacks” they call home.

And there’s an important lesson we can take from watching them live: All we really need to survive is a passion and a cozy shack to call home.

People tend to think of living their lives and giving back as mutually exclusive activities. The thing is, the reader, it’s so goddamn easy to live your normal life and make a positive difference in the world. Case in point: Waves for Water, a non-profit organization that allows surfers and other world travelers to provide clean drinking water to those in need. 

At first blush, surfing seems like a self-indulgent sport. When you’re on the water, sometimes you feel like the only person alive. However, you might say that Waves for Water makes surfing a team sport by encouraging traveling surfers to pack water filters in their luggage, then distribute said water filters among people who really need it.
