Surf accessories: we only need them when they're gone

When we need a wax comb, fin keys, a waterproof key case or a poncho towel, we never seem to have it. Discover the small surf accessories we should have in our surfing box.

When the old wax in our surfboards gets really dark, we don't own a wax remover. When we break a surf fin and we need to replace it, we don't own a fin key.

So, what small and useful surf accessories should we have? Take a look at indispensable surf gear that we never remember, only when we really need it:
