11 Travel Items Supershe Jen Yih Brings on Every Surf Trip

1 Manta Collection Swimwear

“I am obsessed with the moody late night skinny dip kind of style that Manta has established, it goes along with my love affair with the ocean.”

2 Dakine Surfboard Bag

“When it comes to anything sport, Dakine’s product team kicks ass putting quality first. Also, their out of Oregon, my home away from home.”

3 Sceptre Surf and Yoga Anti-Microbial Towel

“I was never big on beach towels, I used to just grab whatever was around. But I’ll support this company till the end and so should you because every towel is made out of 100% recycled materials, also anti-microbial so all sweat or surf and no stank!”

4 Smith Optics Questa Sunglasses

“Smith Optics opened up their archive collection and brought these back from the 1970’s with a fresh re-design. I’m all about the clear frames these days.”

5 Damn Daniel White Vans

“I always destroy these because I treat them like clogs or slip ons, you know, when you just crush the heal part of the shoe. Anyway, I love these, could use a new clean pair soon.”

6 Firewire Spitfire Surfboard

“This is one of the first boards I ever bought myself, I flew all the way to Orange county to personally pick it up from the Firewire warehouse. She’s a 6’6 Spitfire, pretty floaty but a guaranteed good time. Hey Firewire, if you read this, I could use a 6’4” x 19 inches!”

7 Mr. Zog’s Tropical Surf Wax

“Sex wax and a new can of tennis balls, two things I love the smell of.”

8 American Apparel Men’s Basic

White Tee “I don’t know if the first American Apparel tee I stole from a guy I was dating or where it came from, but I’m bulk ordering these. So comfy, so cute but I always manage to splatter balsamic vinegar on them.”

9 Coal Headwear “The Traveler” Hat

“I got this hat out of pure necessity to escape Australian and Indonesian sun, there’s a damn hole in the Ozone but I suppose its en trend if you care about that sort of thing.”

10 Badger Organic Zinc Oxide

“Skin protection is a must!!! I get the white kind, I really don’t understand colored and skin-colored zinc.”

11 Betadine First Aid Solution

“Cut your foot open on the reef in Indonesia one time and you’re going to be so glad you packed this.”
