The ocean stirs, bringing with it promises of swell and salt water escapism. We’ve watched and we’ve waited, now our time has come.
We’ve assembled a kitlist of essentials for getting off-grid as we journey into autumn and winter.
For some of us, summer is peak season. With those long hazy days we rack up countless hours of adventure, travel and good times. But find yourself compelled to experience the world by surf and summer becomes a time of patience and quiet contemplation.
We wait for the ocean to come alive. For autumn swell to move once more.
As the seasons gradually turn, those of us captivated by swell in the Northern Hemisphere go through a transformation. The first chills of autumn signal that it’s time to ready ourselves. The sleeping giant around us is about to awaken and the wait will be worth it.
The glow of summer lingers on but there’s a new chill in the air. We reach for layers, and our minds wander to autumns gone by. This is our time, the desire to escape grows as we pore over maps and forecasts. We ready our gear, assemble our crews, and head to the select breaks, coves and spots that give us true escapism.
The time has come for the ocean to come alive.
