One of the most awkward things about surfing, even in summer, is having to change out of your wetsuit before driving home. There’s almost never a secluded place to change, and getting naked under a towel is risky at best. So you’re stuck being wet or having to briefly get naked while shivering and hiding behind the door of your Tacoma. Shivering and naked is a sad combination, so pick up one of these oddly regal, kind of strange-looking but useful surf ponchos instead.

1. Catalonia Beach Surf Poncho

No, it’s not half a re-used Game of Thrones costume, but we suppose you could wear it to the Renaissance Fair in a pinch. It is however, ideal for staying warm and covered up while changing after climbing out of the surf.

2. Microfiber Surf Poncho

Billed as a changing towel, this hooded surf poncho may look like a funny wizard get up, but it does let you magically transform from surf outfit to street outfit.

3. Ho Stevie! Thick Surf Poncho

This thick microfiber surf poncho is extra long so it fits tall guys well, plus it’s comfortable and flexible enough so you can make a quick change under its ample cover.
