Celebrated surfer Luke Landringan shows us what he lugs in his travels, from a trusty bag to skin care products best to use if you are almost always ultra exposed to sunlight.
Personal surfboard: 5’ x 2” Misfit from Australia
Surfboard is the most important of all, so if you’re serious about surfing it pays to know that you’re on the right board. Luke’s choice is Misfit Shapes, a surf brand that “allows art, design, and individuality to co-exist.”

Billabong board shorts and shirts
Just like the surfboard, it’s also important to invest in good surfing apparel. Surfing requires a fluid movement after all, and you don’t want to wear something that’s ill-fitting. For Luke, The Billabong brand is the perfect for chasing the waves as it is designed to withstand the toughest elements that a surfer can encounter in the waters.

The bright sun can really damage one’s eyes so it’s better to come prepared with a pair of sunglasses. But to create a signature look, Luke’s go-to brand is Oakley which is a good choice given that this brand is more oriented towards sports.
Oakley has a branch at R2, Power Plant Mall Rockwell, Rockwell Drive cor. Strella St., Makati City
Vans backpack and Vans slippers
You can never go wrong with Vans brand whether it comes to footwear or old school backpack. Plus, the renegade image that this brand is associated with oddly goes well with the laid-back, free-spirited, and couldn’t-care-less attitude that a surfer often projects.

Sony Action camera and A6300 Sony
Camera is a must for every adventure. And when it comes to surf photography, the Sony brand certainly delivers. Sony action cameras are designed for sports and underwater use while the A6300 take sharper, crisper photos thanks to its 4D focus.

Jason Cocoa Butter
Surfing involves a lot of sunshine so to hydrate his skin, Luke uses Jason Cocoa Butter, a botanically-rich cream that nurtures, pampers, and moisturizes the skin and prevent it from drying.
