Whether the surfer you’re buying for lives on the California coast or on the chilly shores of Lake Superior, there are loads of surfer-specific gifts that are sure to delight any surfer. For the diehard surfers of the world, only the best will do. Check out our gift ideas for the biggest fans of surfing.
Unique products they’ll love
For enthusiasts of any sport that requires equipment, you can never go wrong with buying either a better version of what they already have or giving a unique item you know will make their abilities in the sport that much better. The Go Pro Underwater Camera is a tool you’ll find that many surfers have. Also, the Go Pro Surf Cam is another cool gift idea from the Go Pro line of cameras, that fuses to the front of a surfboard and allows the surfer to record themselves. They also sell other mounting accessories, like a wrist mount. Other equipment to consider when buying a gift for a surfer are neoprene hoods (to prevent Surfer’s Ear), surfboard racks for bicycles, surfboard ding repair kits, surfboard fins or Indoboards (a surfer cross trainer that helps improve balance and strength).
Otherwise think media
And if you want to buy your surfer something they’ll enjoy when they’re not in the water, anything media-wise is also a great idea. A magazine subscription to either The Surfer’s Journal, Surfer Magazine or Wend Magazine will surely make any diehard surfer pleased. And there are loads of surfing-inspired books to also check out: “Saltwater Buddha” by Jalmal Yogis, “In Search of Captain Zero” by Allan Welsbecker, “Caught Inside” by Daniel Duane and “The California Surf Project” by Eric Soderquist and Chris Burkard. Also, fitness dvds with a surfing slant are another great idea. “Surfing into Yoga with Rochelle Ballard” and “Surf Exercises with Taylor Knox” are a few popular ideas.
While on your hunt for the perfect surfer gift, whether you’re buying gifts for your kids or gifts for husband, always remember to think outside the box, just like how so many surfers already do.
