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.
“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
“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
Your surfer will be completely satisfied with this gift bundle. It features four items that leave nothing to be desired—the original COR wood surfboard display rack, a dark blue micro fiber changing-towel poncho, the CPR surf wetsuit waterproof changing mat that transforms into a bag with the pull of the string, and a bar of Mr. Zogs surf wax.
This elegant watch boasts a silicone strap, a waterproof cover, an ABS plastic case, and a stainless-steel bezel. As if that were not enough, it is guaranteed for five years—all that for under $50.
At just over $50, this powerful watch boasts a 1/100-second stopwatch. It has a long battery life of three years, displays time in two time zones, very useful when your surfer travels to test the waters in other places, and is water resistant to a depth of 660 feet.
FUN SURF GIFTS
What does the surfer in your life do after they retreat from the water? Do they need to do some drying, then, still wet, need to go find a place to change? Here’s a convenient, all-in-one poncho solution. This microfiber poncho is an absorbent towel, a hooded beach robe, and a discreet changing blanket. They’ll love it!
There are morning surfers and there are night surfers. If your special surfer is a night owl, give them an uncommon gift: a beach-themed flask with a round design, engraved with decorative surfboards, and with a capacity for 10 ounces of spirits or their favorite beverage. Two shot glasses complete the rust-resistant set.
