The sight of me in a wetsuit is usually enough to clear the beach of most stragglers, leaving me free to change my wetsuit without the worry of being seen with embarrassing sand crack. Since most of you probably don’t have the same problems with your physique, something like the Cinch Sac Wetsuit Bag could help you squeeze out of your surf gear without getting sandy in the process.
Just stand on the bag as you slip out of your suit, then wrap the special bag design around your ankles, and step out onto the sand. That way you don’t have to lay your whole suit in the sand, getting everything you own full of grain in the process. Get an early jump on summer with this $25 gadget. — Andrew Dobrow
