Made from 100% recycled materials, this classic dryrobe comes in a range of colours. What they all have in common is unparalleled comfort, warmth and drying capacity — a bear hug when you need it. Plenty of room inside offers privacy while changing, while the large waterproof pocket is great for storing valuables. £160.
Compatible with all 12V car power outlets, this pump will inflate your SUP alongside other common inflatables thanks to its range of nozzle attachments. It’s quiet and compact, has a long cable for easier handling and switches off at the desired PSI setting. £69.99.
As well as keeping your feet protected from sharp shingle, water shoes will give you extra grip on slippery surfaces and provide a layer of warmth. This barefoot-style option is sturdy and comfortable, air-dries within a day and, importantly, won’t damage the surface of your paddleboard. £95.
At 9kg, this 32 inch-wide inflatable SUP is light to carry, folding away into a backpack for hassle-free transportation. It’s quick to swell to 15 PSI and provides great stability on the water. The 10ft board, which comes with a detachable fin, is for paddleboarders between 60-80kg. £299.99.
Strong swimmers may only need to rely upon the floatation of their board, but if you’re not so confident, a buoyancy aid will ensure your safety. This slim-fit option weighs only 450g, allowing for freedom of movement, and includes a mesh pocket for stowing away personal items. £39.99.
Don’t let the sunshine fool you: it’s the water temperature that matters, and protection is required should you fall off the board. This wetsuit is crafted from Yulex natural rubber, an alternative to neoprene, and features taped seams, flexible shoulder panels and secure wrists and ankles for zero flushing. £360.
Choosing a paddle is as important as picking a board. This carbon-crafted option is light as a feather, smooth in-hand and superbly streamlined. Height adjustment is straightforward, and the model collapses into three separate pieces for transportation. £349.
Keep yourself extra warm with this fleece-lined hoodie from womenswear specialist ACAI. The design has a water-repellent coating, with ribbed cuffs to stop drips from the paddle. Windproof yet breathable, it makes for a versatile piece of kit for all manner of adventures. £89.
