so when you go out do you usually bring a gatorade or water? for me i get dehydrated very easily. sometimes i can go a few hours, but even in the winter i make sure to bring a little backpack, and have at least two cold gatorades or bottles of water. it's nice to be at a break where there is a drink machine accessible, but a lot of times there aren't especially when you're surfing on a residential lined beach. sometimes i can go hours without needing to get out of the water, and take a drink. a lot of times i can't so it's really important for me to stay hydrated.
