Safety Accessories

Here at Surfski Dynamics we work with fantastic brands to bring you the best gear. One of the biggest hazards in surfski, especially here in the UK is hypothermia. Our minimalist and lightweight approach can become an issue if we were to break the ski, lose a paddle, become stranded, exhaustion etc.

We recommend a five litre grab bag in the front of the footwell with a few key items. Listed on this page are a few things we highly recommend. Too much gear can hinder your movement and your ability to drop into FLOW. Too much gear can make you heavy and make remounts difficult. The minimalist approach is still important. Make sure you dress for conditions and don’t forget your communication equipment!
