The gnarliest threads from the sickest brands.

When it comes to fashion and style, we here at DMARGE are always keen to point you in the direction of high-quality menswear such as a pair of white leather sneakers, a well-fitting suit, and a denim jacket for all occasions. But being based in Australia, we’re all too aware of the surf community, and with the gnarly waves, wipeouts, and long blonde hair, comes a specific way of dressing.

There are plenty of places you can go to pick up some surf-inspired threads, but we’ve picked out the best online shops to get you started. Some are the official sites of some of the biggest surf companies in the world, while others are a one-stop shop for everything you need, from tees to jackets to accessories.

Surfing Essentials FAQ

What do surfers wear on their feet?

Water shoes and sandals are great choices, but they must be slip-resistant. Choose a pair with flexible and lightweight outsoles with a good grip. They must also be form-fitting, so your feet will not slide around.

Can you wear sunglasses while surfing?

Absolutely, but choose a pair with a tight-fitting strap and the ability to float. Polarized lenses are also a good option since they help cut down glare and allow you to spot corals and rocks below the water surface.

Is it easier to surf on a long or short board?

If you are a beginner, go for a long board. They are easier to paddle and better suited for dropping into big waves and swells. Short boards have less foam so they are harder to balance and stand on.
