Why We Love Dakine Surf Bags

There are a lot of great surf bags out there, but Dakine never seems to disappoint us.

By: The Outbound Collective + Save to a List

We've got a handful of surfers on our team here at The Outbound and earlier this year while we were working on some stories about our favorite surf gear, we noticed almost every item our team entered into our "favorite surf bags" spreadsheet was from Dakine. They must be doing something right! 

Whether we're traveling across the world, tossing our gear into the back of the car for a quick road trip, or just heading to our local beach, here are a few of our favorite surf bags from Dakine.

Regulator Triple Surfboard Bag

Chris says, "This bag is perfect for when I need to take multiple boards on a trip to Baja and you don't know exactly what kind of conditions you are going to get. There's plenty of room and protection."

Chris says, "This is a great bag for throwing your board in your car, in the garage, or on a trip when you are only bringing one board."

John John Florence Daylight Thruster Surfboard Bag

Grant says, "Tough zippers, tough ripstop, tough padding...this thing just does exactly what it is supposed to do. Keep the cargo as precious as can be. It also makes for a semi-comfy sleeping bag if your ride ditches you at a Padang hostel or for a poor man's La-Z-Boy when your connecting flight is delayed 3hrs. Just curl up inside or lay across the top. Either way you're a hobo with some style."

Liam says "This has been my go-to board bag for the last year or so. I love the reliability of the durable Cordura material and how comfortable the shoulder strap is. I even steal the strap to use for my bigger board bag when I'm using that because the Dakine strap is significantly more comfortable. The reflective lining is a must-have...nobody wants melty wax all over the inside of their board bag!"
