Do you have someone in your life that loves surfing? If so, then you have come to the right place. Today, we’re going to go through some perfect gifts for the surf-dude or surf-chick that you know and love so much. With only a few weeks to go until Christmas, let’s get stuck in straight away.
A trip to Hawaii
If you have the money, then we recommend heading out to the surfer’s paradise that is Hawaii. It’s something of a Mecca for the sport, as the islands are known as the birthplace of modern surfing. If your loved one has never had the pleasure before, then it’s the perfect gift – just watch out that they don’t explode with joy on Christmas Day. You can find out more on what to expect from Hawaii in our little guide.
Strap Paddle carry system
We guess that your loved one already has a board, but how do they carry it around? We love the Ocean and Earth carry system, which makes it easy to go from VW Camper straight down to the beach. Check it out at your local surf emporium – it’s not bad value, either. Although it doesn’t look glam, and true surfer will realise how much it’s going to help them. Those boards are so difficult to carry, especially in the high winds that make for perfect surf.
We’re not all lucky enough to live near water, so if your surf-loving partner finds it hard to practice, we have the perfect solution. This Indo Board balance trainer will help them practice their balance anywhere with a flat surface. They are a lot of fun, too – especially if you’re planning on some fun party games after a Christmas tipple.
Some new threads
You can’t go wrong with buying a surf lover some new clothes. And if you are looking for new surf shorts or beach gear, what other brand is there to turn to, other than the iconic Rip Curl? It’s a name that is cemented with surfing, and their practical clothing ticks all the right boxes for contemporary style, too.
It’s one thing buying a surfboard, but what about the opportunity of making your own? There are plenty of cool workshops where you can do just that these days. Have a look around and see if you can spot something in your locale. It’s a great gift that will give your loved one the chance to create their own board, and design it to their own specifications.
We have all seen the incredible footage you can get with a GoPro, but have you ever wondered how surfers manage it? Well, this might give you a clue. The HoStevie GoPro Mouth Mount fits between the surfer’s teeth, as opposed to being strapped to their body. It means better weight distribution, and frees up the hands and ensures nothing gets in the way of vision. It’s an unusual piece of kit that can lead to spectacular results.
OK, so that’s all we have time for right now. We hope you have found something suitable for your surf-loving partner!
