15 Gifts That Will Sort Out Just About Everyone In Your Life
It's right around this time that you realise there are weeks left until Christmas and you haven't bought anyone a present.
No dramas, we've got you covered.
Search GPS 2 Surf Watch - 399.99
This watch is insane. It is smaller, lighter and better than the one that came before it - which is kinda the point of a new version - and also comes with real-time surf conditions and GPS tracking activities so turn that shit off if you have a suspcious partner.
Bondi Pigment Volley shorts - 49.99
They had us at elastic waist. Hands up who eats Christmas ham in eleventy million ways over December, stretching into January when let's face it, the quality is getting pretty bloody dubious but just imagine munching on a bbq'ed bit of chewy ham while watching the cricket and wearing these. Hello, summer.
Mirage Wilko Splice Boardshort - 79.99
The lairy-ness of these feels like you could get a bit spicy when wearing them. Hot damn do we like these boardies. They're 18 inches and they've got a zip pocket for prime key stash-age.
Mirage 3/2/One Ultimate Boardshort - 99.99
These are fancy boardies well worth the dosh, designed with a new advanced Cordura fabric. The side of these shorts are made of neoprene for ultimate stretch and they have multiple zip pockets and laser cut perforations.
Hanalei Bay Long Sleeve Surf Suit - 119.99
No slippage, but ticks the boxes of the slop and slap big time. How sweet is this rad bit of sun protection that you can actually surf your face off in? Lock and load, this is a perfect gift.
G-Bomb Long Sleeve Hi Cut Spring Wetsuit - 209.99
Legit the best looking women's wettie we have ever seen. Hands down. And she'll like it heaps more than that other crappy thing you're thinking of getting her. Techy stuff: 100% 1mm E4 neoprene, detailed with E-stitchhigh stretch seams for total comfort and flexibility in the water.
E-Bomb 3/2mm Zip Free Wetsuit Steamer - 449.99
Just look at Mick in this wettie. See how confident and flexible he looks? That's precisely what you get when you buy this wettie. But seriously, it is made of E6 super stretch neoprene, which is officially stretchy.
Snakey Tee - 49.99
Deadset, the proper name of this tee is "Snakey Tee". Imagine planning your night, then looking for something clean in your wardrobe/floor and seeing this puppy and going, "Ahh yeah, Snakey Tee, it's your run tonight big fella. Let's set this town alight."
Undertow Panel Tee - 49.99
We'll cut to the chase. It's a good looking tee for people who want to feel a bit suave every now and then.
Icon Marle Tee - 49.99
Oh but this isn't just any t-shirt. It features Rip Curl's unique vapor cooling treatment that will keep you dry and cool no matter how hot it gets. In other words, if you get the sweats, this is the solution.
Valley Hooded Towel - 59.99
Groms spend their Christmas holidays surfing from first light until sundown and return with eyeballs as red as the centre of the earth. Their hair is crusted with salt and when they're not surfing they're replaying clips of surfing and possibly wearing this hooded towel, which is made out of velour microfibre that dries quick. A great thing if you're the parent of said grom and don't want to spend your life washing ten billion towels a day.
Wave Long Sleeve UV Rash Vest - 49.99
It will stop your grom getting skin cancer and they'll actually wear it because it doesn't look lame. Perfect.
Upcycle X Large Case - 19.99
Remember when you were a kid and you got a fresh pencil case every year and decorated it with band names and badly drawn dicks? Well, this pencil case is the super tweaked modern version. Made out of upcycled neoprene from wetsuit offcuts, it fits a 15 inch computer and is detailed with a zip accessory pocket. Help the grom in your life create long lasting memories - just be sure to include the liquid paper too.
F-light Skunk Midnight Bag - 79.99
This little creation takes a lemon and turns it into cold beer. What is it? We're glad you asked. This is a wettie bucket that will deal with your soggy wettie thanks to its self draining floor and water resistant bits, but also doubles as an esky. It's like the Surf Gods could read our minds and understand all we need after a great surf is a way to reach for a frothy and have somewhere to chuck the suit.
F-light surf backpack - 179.99
It's astonishing how when you travel your belongings suddenly weigh ten gazillion kilos more than they do at home, particularly when you're flying Tiger Air and they weigh your carry on. This bag clocks in at just 1.2kgs and has all sorts of epic extras including a wet/dry section, Tough Base protection, insulated cooler pocket, a wax organiser pocket, a fleecelined sunnies pocket, a fin organiser and more. And it fits heaps of gear in it. Guaranteed Chrissy winner.
