Our August Trip Special

At Wetsuit Outlet HQ, the water cooler talk tends to lean heavily towards anecdotes from past surf, SUP, sail, or swim trips and what exciting water-based adventures people have in the pipeline. So we thought it was about time we shared some of our summer plans, along with the gear that’s going to get us there. Let’s jump in.

David - Kayak Buyer

"I’m off on a week-long trip to “sunny” Wales this August. I haven’t been for a while so I’m looking forward to exploring the Snowdonia region again. I’m planning on doing some lake kayaking and paddleboarding alongside some mountain biking around the area. As I’m going with my kids, who are 16 and 23, I’m hoping they will be fully engaged with all the great outdoors has to offer."

"I’m going to lake Windermere at the end of the month to go wakesurfing & camping in our tent box. We’re planning on camping on the edge of the lake, get up at dawn when the lake is the calmest and flattest (weather permitting!) and surf all day."

Will - Merchandiser

"For me dipping or swimming outdoors, immersed in nature, is the ultimate way to top up your mental and physical battery. That’s why this summer I'll be heading to the Scottish Lowlands via the Lake District to explore some of the most scenic open water swimming destinations in the country, and I'll be packing the van with some of these essentials to keep me comfortable and safe."
