Top Gift Ideas for a Beach Bum

Jul 11th 2015 at 12:57 PM

Surfing can be an exhilarating experience. That feeling of flying over the surface of sky-high waves is simply incomparable. To others, paddling into serene waters atop a paddle board can also be thrilling. Getting stoked standing up on any of those Kings Paddle Boards after a week’s busy schedule can be electrifying. So, if you are looking for the perfect birthday or anniversary gift for your gal or guy, here are some equally exhilarating yet practical items that can get them stoked.

Paddle Boards

If your gal or guy pal already has a surfboard at hand or is nursing an injury that does not allow surfing, why not give him one of the ultra fantastic paddle boards? Give him or her alternative fun idea should the breaks are flat as the London docklands. A cross between surfing and canoeing, SUP or stand-up paddleboarding can be done in either salt or fresh body of water. These boards are designed to allow a rider to stay still and paddle their way on the water without toppling over like a duck losing its footing. Try personalized Kings Paddle Boards. All of their paddleboards are custom-made according to a rider’s specifications.  SUPs up, anyone?

Traction Pad

For someone who has a new board, this traction pad will make a good partner. Traction pads are recommended for surfboards to help increase its grip. This also allows a rider more extreme maneuvers, too. With this newfound atTRACTION, he or she will definitely get stoked as he frolicked on the vastness of the sea.   

Changing Mat

Surfers and SUPers alike have wear a wetsuit to protect their skin from the harsh elements of both water and sun. As wetsuits can be quite pricey, taking good care of them is also important. To prevent fast wear and tear when getting in and out of a wetsuit, a changing mat could come handy. This changing mat will help shield its soft neoprene material from sand, gravel, and other rough surfaces. Oh, be reminded that most changing mats also double as a water resistant bag. Simply get out of your suit, cinch it up and you’re good to go.

Dakine Board Bags or Pack

At some point, a surfboard bag will deteriorate. Padded Dakine board bags, for instance, feature high quality acrylic knit fabric which delivers the ultimate ding protection and UV shielding as well as resistance to cutting from surf fins. This also keeps one’s board safe when thrown or stacked while travelling. Or, you can also choose a surfing pack to hold all his gear in one place. This is one also suitable when surfing or paddle boarding in a remote location.

Bamboo Long Board

Another cool gift that has its roots in surfing is longboarding. This one is a great choice for someone who loves to glide on land as much as in the water. Most surfers are health buffs and a Bamboo Long Board will definitely help buff their gams, triceps and biceps even on dry ground. It can also be used as a mode of transport should a surfing break is just a stone’s distance away.
