    Apologies if this has been discussed before but wondering what people use here to protect their key when going surfing or diving? I'd prefer to somehow keep the key on me instead of hiding it in the bushes or the sand. Thanks!

    Do they make a super small dry bag? I have one that is about the size of a lunch box, but that would probably be to big for you when surfing.

    I have a friend that plasidips his key and then can keep it in his wetsuit.

    If where you park your car when you go surfing has good internet connection, and if you have an Apple Watch Series 2, you could leave your key at home. As long as you leave your iPhone in the car, you can use the Remote S app to lock and unlock the door with your Watch. And Watch 2 is waterproof so hopefully safe for surfing.

    This is what I do when I go jogging. No need to carry a key with me (in case it rains). Just make sure you have Internet connection there before embarking on this endeavor.

    I don't know if you could duplicate this process with an Android phone and watch.
