Better Surf Team Says:

Best Commercially available First Aid Kit for surfers that we’re aware of. Designed by emergency doctors who surf, for surfers that may not have tons of medical knowledge. No hard edges so you can throw it straight into your board bag / coffin on your next surf trip. Light enough at 0.65kg that it won’t weigh your bags down, but has everything a laysurfer needs to completely sort out the simple stuff like urchins / splinters / sunburn / sand stuck in the eyes. Also has everything needed to provide pro-level first aid for more serious injuries until you can get to higher level help, like at a local hospital (shoulder dislocations, broken arms, deep lacerations other wounds). Includes an ultra-high quality tensor bandage that’s designed for managing venomous snakebites, but is perfectly suited for early management of fractures and sprains
