Reef Cuts, Dodgy Food & Ending Up in Hospital ... Pack These Remedies Into Your Surf Bag
I love a good surf trip.
How about you?
For most surfers, it’s exciting to be heading off to an exotic location in hope of scoring quality waves and mixing it up with the locals. I recently had a golden opportunity to do just this.
For the record – when it comes to surfing, ‘exotic’ really means; in the middle of now-where, lots of sketchy food options and typically as hot as fuck.
And I really was, ‘hoping’. I had no idea about my destination.
First stop Bangkok.
Lastly India. I was definitely heading into dodgy waters.
Small Surf Cuts Big Surf Problems
Anyone who enjoys a good surf trip knows that reef scrapes, shifty food and physical aches and pains come with the territory, especially if your destination is tropical… so lets start with the not so obvious, obvious.
1) Reef cuts and minor scraps easily get infected in the tropics and when they do, your surf trip becomes a night mare. (Pre-contest – A grom dropped in to say hello and fin sliced a wee cut in my foot – two days later I was in hospital…) 🙁
2) Sun stroke or heat exhaustion is no a laughing matter. Typically due to surfing your brains out, dehydration and good times after sunset 🙂 Tricks to avoid this and stay surf strong during your holiday are coming up below.
3) New waves, new rocks, new reefs, new foods, new beverages, new toilet styles… things happen ‘on tour’… like eating spicy road kill that fires up the A-hole… best we prepare in advance. 🙂
Below are 6 remedies to pack into your surf travel bag so that you can surf strong and stay healthy during your holiday.
