The Ultimate SurfYogaBeer Packing Guide


Trip confirmed, flights booked, and excitement on. You're impatiently awaiting the start of your SurfYogaBeer adventure but also asking the classic question, "What do I pack?" Don't worry; we've got you covered (literally.) Hint hint - some dope SYB swag might be awaiting your arrival to contribute to your already hot outfits.

Pro Tip: While these are our suggestions based on our trip experiences, pack how you are comfortable and consider packing cubes to keep things a little more organized. We'll also send you a specific trip guide 4 weeks out from the adventure! 


  • 1 pair of comfortable sneakers for workouts
  • 1 pair of casual sneakers or other footwear 
  • Workout/yoga attire (mix and match for maximum outfit options)
  • Sports bras (for whoever needs 'em)
  • A nicer outfit or two for any "go-out" nights
  • Sunscreen (hot or cold; skin safety is vital!)
  • Reusable Water bottle
  • Hydration / Electrolyte salts (check out Halo, Liquid Iv, Nuun, etc.)
  • Tums/Pepto or activated charcoal 
  • Toiletries (Soap, shampoo, conditioner, facewash, razor, deodorant)
  • Toothbrush/toothpaste/floss 
  • A sweater or hoodie (ya never know)
  • Socks and underwear (if that's your thing)
  • Sleepwear 
  • Two theme night outfits (don't worry, we'll let you know the themes four weeks out)

SUNSEEKERS: Less is more when packing for your warm-weather getaway. Consider saving those jeans for when you really need them, and pull out those sundresses, shorts, and tank tops. We're talking linen and comfortable, breathable clothing. 

  • Swimsuit
  • Cover-up
  • Sunglasses
  • Flip flops
  • Hat
  • Rash guard (for surfing)
  • Beach bag
  • Reef Safe Sunscreen
  • SPF chapstick
  • Aloe or lotion (just in case you go SPF 15 instead of 50)
  • Insect Repellent

COLD-WEATHER CHASERS: Layers, layers, layers! 

  • Packable cold-weather jacket
  • Cold-weather footwear
  • Sweaters
  • Undershirts
  • Fleece-lined leggings
  • Beanie
  • Gloves
  • Ski attire (Chamonix chic) *rentals may be available


  • Universal plug adapter (depending on location)
  • Phone charger
  • Laptop/charger (if necessary) (but we recommend you hang up + hang out) 
  • Portable charging bank


  • Conservative cover-up (depending on location or for extra sun protection)
  • Dramamine (for our motion-sickness-prone friends)
  • Light-weight rain jacket
  • Any regular medications
  • Advil or Tylenol
  • Feminine products, period. 
  • Belt-pouch or purse
  • Journal
  • Debit card to withdraw cash (always safe to have some on you - just check the card's expiration date before departure!)

Pro Tip: Rooming with one or more people? Consider packing earplugs and an eye mask, just in case. You'll thank us later. 


Will there be a chance to do laundry?

Depending on the trip location, there may not be an opportunity to do a proper washing. We recommend bringing extra changes of clothes if you can fit them, and also encourage embracing whatever salty, sandy, or sweatiness you get yourself into!

Pro Tip: Throw a few of these travel detergent packs in your luggage for emergency washing needs.

I've heard there are theme parties, what should I bring?

You heard correctly, and whatever the theme party, it will be epic. A few weeks before your trip, you will be notified of the theme and what accessories or outfits to bring to your adventure. 

Should I pack in a carry-on bag?

Pack as you wish, but be aware that certain locations may require carrying your luggage upstairs or through longer paths. SYB is free of judgment, so don't be surprised if you see people doubling up on the clothing or deciding to live in a swimsuit or workout clothes for the majority of the trip!

Pro Tip: Using a larger backpack as your "personal item" if traveling by plane gives you extra space to store your travel goods.

Should I bring my camera?

Part of the SYB charm is that each trip includes a dedicated photographer, helping you to be present and enjoy the moment. Whether you need a new dating profile photo or want to capture the moment with new friends, consider it taken care of.

If you still need some outfit inspo, check out the SYB Instagram to see what other adventurers have worn throughout different destinations. Whatever you decide to pack and whatever you wear, you're in for an epic trip. Just don't forget your passport!
