It’s one thing to have your stand up paddle gear (board, paddle, leash and fins) all sorted but what about the rest of your SUP world? As we all know, stand up paddling is a lifestyle to be grasped with both hands. It’s not merely good enough to hit the H2O for a session and then head back to daily grind; we want our threads, our kicks, our wagons, in fact every part of our life to reflect the sport we love.
Planet Ocean are a company who believe in the salty way and produce a range of goodies to keep those SUP fires stoked when you’re not out sweeping. Their range of stylish backpacks, quality wallets, funky watches, clothing and functional sunnies will help make your sweeping times all the more enjoyable. Who doesn’t want to look like a surf god these days?
In particular their backpacks have been extremely useful as a place to stash spare leashes, wax and towels when at the beach. We’ve also used them to hide away our Planet Ocean wallets while out for a float. And it’s nice to be rocking clobber that isn’t the usual big brand bling.
Racers will appreciate the high spec shades to keep the sun’s glare at bay, while Planet Ocean watches are waterproof, durable and ensure you’re not late for that all important family gathering after sneaking a surf sesh.
The quality of each bit of kit was impressive and affordability is right up there – proving you don’t have to break the bank for the swag you need. After speaking with the owner it’s clear they love SUP – another tick in the Planet Ocean box – and it’s nice see companies stepping up to the plate and voicing their support.
High quality accessories for all saltwater loving aficionados. Planet Ocean gear is perfect for stand ups looking for stylish and alternative threads, wallets, backpacks, watches and sunnies. Great for days at the beach, relaxing after your session and après SUP sud sucking – whether you be a girl or boy.
