How to use a change towel at the beach
Surfers are all too familiar with the struggles of changing out of their wetsuits and into their casual clothes after a long day on the waves. No access to a public changing room? That’s where the change towel comes in.
This is a hooded towel that can be slipped over your head like a poncho. Simply put it on over your boardshorts or wetsuit to protect your privacy while you wiggle out of your wet clothes and into something dry.
