The Surfers First Aid Kit
Are you sick of First Aid Kits that don't step up to the mark? Surf Indonesia has created the ultimate surfers first aid kit to provide you with the essential tools you need for basic first aid and cutting out the fillers you don’t. Tried and tested by surfers to meet the needs of surfing, not only in Indonesia but around the world, so you don’t get stuck with a stock standard first aid kit that doesn’t provide you with much useful or worse, nothing at all!
Clean Wounds Thoroughly
The first step in treating a reef cut or any cut is the most important. Any reef related wound, no matter how small, has to be thoroughly cleaned. Removing any foreign debris that will cause infection. The soft sterile wound cleaning sponge, irrigation syringe and saline solution enable you to clean the wound thoroughly to ensure any coral dust and spores are removed. Decreasing the likelihood of infection and delays in the healing process.
Remove Foreign Debris Easily
When you are treating wounds yourself you need all the help you can get. High precision tweezers make removing foreign debris, remains of reef and coral dust from your wound a lot easier and less painful.
Heal Reef Cuts Faster
Hemostatic Gauze is a revolutionary cellulose-based material that accelerates the blood clotting process and is a must-have item in every surfing first aid kit. When the gauze contacts with blood it quickly transforms into a stiff gel, which fills wound voids, seals capillary ends and activates the clotting system saving you days or weeks of recovery time.
Prevent Infection Without Using Damaging Antiseptics
Triple antibiotic ointment is an effective formula that contains three active ingredients to help stop the growth of bacteria, reducing pain and inflammation. While commonly used antiseptics such as lime, hydrogen peroxide, iodine or rubbing alcohol into the wound does work to kill bacteria they can also damage the tissue, irritate the wound and delay the healing process.
Cover Wounds Effectively
The Adhesive Stretch Dressing is a wide area adhesive dressing that is especially suitable for use on frequently mobile and highly contoured parts of the body where reef cuts occur. It provides a bacterial barrier that is permeable to air and water vapour with excellent long term skin/wound adhesion. It can be applied directly over top of the wound, with or without gauze. Minimising any disturbances of blood circulation to speed up the healing process.
Remove Sea Urchin Spines Quick & Easy
Sea urchin spines have a tendency to wander into the worst parts of the body (your feet 99% of time), regardless of how well you protect yourself. With a purpose built splinter probe you can easily remove spines as soon as possible.
No one plans to get injured while surfing, but it’s good to know what you’re up against.
The most common injury you’re likely to experience when surfing is an impact on the bottom or with your board. Depending on the break, and the size of the surf, this can vary from a whole host of injuries ranging from reef cuts to lacerations. The best way to prepare yourself is through a few preventative measures such as ensuring you have a reliable first aid kit on hand, for when you need one.

Surf assured that you're prepared with The Surfers First Aid Kit.
Reassuring to know I have something decent on hand for basic first aid.
I have put myself in the predicament of travelling without a first aid kit on surf trips in the past and I can tell you first hand there is nothing worse than hitting the reef and then having to track down a first aid kit. Big fan of the adhesive stretch dressing as it stays on even after getting back in the water. Be prepared and get yourself one of these kits before your next surf mission.
EPIC Surf first aid kit! Wouldn't travel without one now!
Bought this not sure if I would use it much but wanted to have all bases covered. Used it more than 5 times while tripping around Bali with a few reef scrapes. Absolutely worth the investment, jam packed with the essentials and more. Highly recommend carrying one in your board bag wherever you go, I will be from now on!
The hemostatic gauze is an absolute game changer!
Great first aid kit for treating reef cuts. The hemostatic gauze works wonders on kickstarting the blood clotting process and the splinter probe makes life a hell of a lot easier when removing sea urchin spines. All in all this first aid kit is full of items you will end up using and is must-have for travelling to Indo.
All the first aid essentials in one handy case.
I’ve travelled to Indo a bunch of times in the past with no first aid supplies and been caught out with reef cuts that could have been an easy fix if I was prepared. This kit is perfect for the everyday battler like myself (with a limited first aid knowledge) who is bound to cope a few battle scars to get patched up and back out there!
Great quality with everything you need
I usually pack my own first aid supplies in a snaplock bag but never really have everything I need. This first aid kit has it all. When you open it you can tell the guys at Surf Indonesia have thought about each item with great care and from experience. Would recommend to anyone.
