Portable showers were initially designed for camping, but they rapidly became popular within the surfing community because of their numerous advantages. Discover the best surf showers in the world.

Once you get a portable shower, you'll realize that you should have tried it a long time ago.

After a long marathon of salt water surfing, there's nothing like rinsing yourself off with fresh water. And it becomes more relevant if you're off to work next.

Portable sprayers are also an excellent idea for cold water surfers.

They can keep the water temperature warm and will provide you with a very pleasant post-surf experience in those winter days when your feet and hands are frozen.

Finally, portable showers are the perfect desalination solution for wetsuits and boards.

You don't need to do it at home, in the bathtub, anymore. Just enjoy your outdoor shower and rinse off your gear.

The fact is that portable showers are relatively inexpensive, and they will dramatically improve the surfing experience, wherever you are.

Some models are so handy that you can even put them in a backpack.

Whether you prefer cold or hot water, these are the best portable surfing showers for your 2021 summer and winter wave riding sessions:
