Well, never thought I'd see the day, but my Yoga mat needs to come with, to keep me surfing. I'm becoming and old prick and my back hurts like hell, often, so the yoga mat is a must.

immodium is a real smart move

tums, too.

if there are bugs there, there will be bug spray, too and it's
generally cheaper than buying it in the states.

headlamp!

lots of fin keys, finbox screws, extra leash string, wax.


It’s like the GZA coming on after U-God

Bug head net will keep you from going completely totally insane when it's buggy, hot and they want to drink from your eyes, ears, nose, forehead etc.
DEET for the shoes, ankles and wrists, one of these for the face and neck.

Two things I bring from that article but aren't remotely essential:
Vitamins. One bottle with assorted things like multi vitamin, potassium, etc etc.
Gopro - Love filming underwater, doesn't matter if it's in the ocean or a river.

For super off the grid trips especially if I'm by myself, a ResQLink PLB. A snake bite, bad injury, or pushing the button for someone else might be the best $300 ever spent in your pack.

Amazon ~ "Sawyers insect repellant for clothes / ticks and mosquitos

Hell yeah on the "face net" ~

Garmin ~ Has two different PLB's> a mini version and a regular, larger, Personal Locator Beacon
Most long distance hikers seem to be carrying them on the AT, the PCT, CDT, etc.

This guy just used his Garmin InReach to get choppered out from an Oregon Trail from a back injury.

https://youtu.be/gCHUKE04dBc Go to 4.07 whee the helicopter drops the EMT and helo guy on the ground.
