It might be winter here in Australia, but thanks to our lovely maritime climate there’s simply no wrong time to hit the beach. Or if you’re feeling adventurous you can always get on a plane and go all Endless Summer by beach hopping around the world–we Aussies do love to travel. Wherever your sea side pursuits may take you, you’ll want to be prepared. That means heading over to online retailer Huckberry for the best in gear, apparel and accessories. And if you’d rather do more hopping, less shopping, just check out our Huckberry Finds below. This August we’re feeling beachy, as if that wasn’t already obvious.
Nisolo Leon Weekender
Ethically handmade in Mexico using the finest vegetable-tanned leather, Nisolo’s Leon Weekender is built to last and dressed to impress. In addition that prime leather and dreamy chestnut colour, the bag hosts a tan cotton canvas interior, dual carry handles, an adjustable shoulder strap and trusty leather zipper pulls. Load it up with booze, marshmallows and swimwear and hit the beach like a champ. And if you’re taking it abroad, we suggest leaving the booze behind.
Pacifico Optical Ashley Sunglasses
No trip to the beach is complete without a pair of killer shades, and Bondi Beach’s own Pacifico Optical has the shades game on lock. Their Ashley sunglasses emanate with classic vintage vibes. Those handcrafted D-shaped frames come in the warm colour of Choc Havana. Lightweight and shatterproof brown lenses include anti-reflective layering and deliver UV6 400 protection and reduced glare.
About Vintage 1815 Chronograph
Paying tribute to the birth of the chronograph is this supremely clean watch from About Vintage. With its pearl white dial, royal blue hands and brown leather strap, the 1815 Chronograph visually begs you to take it out to sea. Giving each piece a touch of distinction is an individual number engraved on the case back.
Outerknown Beach Camp Shirt
Founded by pro surfer Kelly Slater and designer John Moore, clothing brand Outerknown truly does the beach shirt right. Their Beach Camp shirt pairs soft cotton with a loose weave and a Japanese inspired vintage pattern. The result is pure casual perfection. Unlike most beach wear, the Base Camp shirt is ironically anything but campy.
Nisolo Alejandro Woven Slip On
Going to the beach means keeping it breezy and the Alejandro Woven Slip Ons from Nisolo are the epitome of breezy footwear. However, don’t let that fool you into thinking the quality is anything short of exceptional. Each pair is handwoven and overflowing with premium vegetable tanned leather. Welcome to comfort country.
Sendero Provisions Co. Rocky Mountain National Park Hat
Bring some pure mountain spirit to the coastline with this trusty Rocky Mountain hat from Sendero Provisions Co.

A braided rope adorns the bill and a snapback closure allows for effortless adjustment.
Maritime Supply Company Sterling Silver Anchor Bracelet
Brimming with craftsmanship and allure, Maritime Supply Co.’s bracelet couples a hand-treated leather cord with a silver anchor emblem to striking effect. Wrap it around your wrist and watch it draw eyeballs all the way down the shoreline. We love this accessory and you will too.
La Matera Trucha Belt
Visually inspired by Argentine city life, this extraordinary belt tingles the spine at first sight. That’s due to a hand-woven serpentine pattern over premium vegetable tanned leather. Pair that with a solid brass buckle and you’ve got the best of reliability and distinction. Giddy up!
Pantropic Explorer Hat
Protect your neck and conquer the day with this hand-woven wide brimmed Explorer hat from Pantropic. Made from authentic Panama straw and kept in place by a leather chin strap, the hat is lightweight, flexible, dependable and ready for adventure.
