LANDS END VERTICAL STRIPE RUGBY BEACH TOWEL $29. Available in a wide assortment of color combos, this striped oversized beach towel is plush and soft, made from 100% cotton with snagproof flatweave edging.

CENTER COLUMN: TAG HEUER FORMULA 1 QUARTZ CHRONOGRAPH MCLAREN EDITION $1550. Inspired by Formula 1 racing and the “Rocket Red” of Team McLaren’s 1985 campaign, this numbered limited edition chronograph is highlighted by a black and red NATO strap for a bold sporty look wherever the road may take you.

RIGHT COLUMN: RAPHA CAP $35. Worn under a helmet or on its own, this classic bicycle cap is made from a soft, lightweight technical cotton and is water resistant, fast-drying and very breathable. With clean modern styling and a cool racing stripe, it makes a great look on and off the bike. BEAR PERFORMANCE WAIKIKI SPECIAL LONGBOARD $1199. This classic endless summer longboard is happy in any surf. It’s lightweight and a great board for pointbreaks and beachbreaks, but really starts to shine in long, peeling waves.
