HOLIDAY GIFTS FOR SURFERS

In Orange County, the seasons do not change. It’s summer year-round. That’s why surfing is a year-long sport that is popular with people of all ages. Shopping for your favorite surfer can be a frustrating task, since their needs are as uncommon as the sport they love. No worries. We have come up with some useful, some fun, and some unusual items that will help you find the perfect present for the surfer you have in mind.

 

SURF BOOKS


“Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life” by William Finnegan

“Without a doubt, the finest surf book I’ve ever read… All this technical mastery and precise description go hand in hand with an unabashed, infectious earnestness. Finnegan has certainly written a surfing book for surfers, but on a more fundamental level, ‘Barbarian Days’ offers a clear-eyed vision of American boyhood. Like Jon Krakauer’s ‘Into the Wild,’ it is a sympathetic examination of what happens when literary ideas of freedom and purity take hold of a young mind and fling his body out into the far reaches of the world.”  — The New York Times Magazine

“The History of Surfing” by Matt Warshaw

“There’s a reason that Warshaw is at the top of the surf writing field, and if you’re looking for a gift for the literate surfer in your life, this is definitely the one.” — SBC Surf Magazine
