How to Pack for a Day Surfing on the North Shore of Oahu. So your planning on a day of surfing on the North Shore and want to be prepared.  To help with this, I’ve created a list below.  Remember that if you don’t have everything on the list Haleiwa Town has at least a half dozen surf shops and a Long’s Drug Store with just about everything you will need for a day of surfing.

  1. Refillable water bottle, I like hydroflasks because they keep your water super cold.
  2.  Reef safe sunscreen
  3. First aid kit in case you cut your feet on the reef
  4. Bathing suite / surf trunks
  5. Rash guard / wetsuit
  6.  Surfboard
  7. Surfboard wax
  8.  Two leashes in case one breaks
  9.  Sunglasses
  10. Slippers
  11. Towel
  12. Sun hat
  13. Cover up for after surfing
  14. Cash to buy lunch
