We suggest you bring on charter:

Fins: 3 of your favourites
Rash Vest / 1mm Wetsuit top
Sunscreen/ Zinc/Hat/Sun Glasses

Usb / memory card "so you take home all the photos we shoot during the trip" 16-32 gb
First Aid Kit: We do have an extensive medical kit and first aid gear on board,we are trained and certified in First Aid,although it helps to bring a small personal kit of your own with some betadine,antiseptic cream and elastoplast bandaids ,some panadol as well to treat any small cuts / scratches you may have in your own time.
Re Hydration powders;;eg, gatorade/powerade.It gets very warm and humid in the tropics and it is important to keep your fluids up and stay hydrated,electrolytes help replace the salts and sugars you loose while surfing
