Christmas Gift Ideas For Surfers: 17 Great Gifts Every Female Surfer Will Love
Why not get her what she really wants?
One of our favourite parts about Christmas is finding awesome presents for our nearest and dearest.
However, one of the worst parts is not knowing what to get them.
If any of the rad ladies you are trying to buy something for are into their surfing, you're in luck. We promise that these among the ideas, you'll find the perfect gift...
From the raddest beach towel on the planet to the best looking surf suits, this is the ultimate Christmas list for any female surfer.
1) Billabong Wetsuit
Winter suits can get a bit of a bad rep sometimes for not being very pretty.
When buying a 5/4, it's true that you probably care more about whether it keeps your limbs from freezing than what it looks like, but that doesn't mean a winter suit can't do both.
This Billabong suit proves just that. Any surfer would be stoked to receive a thick suit that looks this nice on.

2) Penny Longboard
Longboards are indisputably the best way to cruise around a city.
Whether it be the rolling urban hills of San Francisco or just the backstreet potholes in Wolverhampton, you will always feel ten times cooler on a board.
This Penny is the classic longboard style and perfect for both hills and for rolling from A to B.

3) Mayan Beach and Pool Towel
This isn't something we usually get all excited about, but how incredible is this towel?!
In person it's even more rad, with the full circular shape spanning a super impressive size.
While you may think that this is a lot to pay for a towel, this is less a beach towel, more like an actual rug.
Take it on picnics or take it to the beach, but on the other hand - it would even look amazing as a permanent fixture on your wooden floor.

4) Surf Fin Art
Price: £20-£48 a set
We are in love with these fins.
Hand painted by artist Lauren Henderson, they are properly unique and one of a kind.
While illustrated fins are not hard to come by, we have never seen any like these before. The attention to detail is insane and the love Lauren puts into them is obvious.

5) Seea Surf Suit
Surf suits are our favourite new surf accessory this year - for when it's too hot for a wetsuit, but the surf is way too gnarly for a bikini.
Seea has the most incredible range of surf suits, which we’re totally crazy over at the moment. This design is brand new in their December range and is our favourite yet.
Sturdy fit? Check. Rad design? Check. Awesome boy short cut? Check. We want!

6) Passenger Beanie
We discovered Passenger clothing by chance at a festival this year and have been a little obsessed ever since.
While their t-shirts and boardshorts are amazing, if there’s one place they really excel, it’s their beanies.
You can’t really explain what makes the perfect beanie, is it the feel, the colour, the fit? We don’t know!
What we do know however, is that whatever it is, Passenger beanies have it in spades….

7) Finisterre Coat
Oh Finisterre, the clothing company dreams every British surfer dreams of.
The Cornwall based company makes a range of awesome apparel. For us however, it’s all about this jacket.
The ultimate piece of Finisterre clothing, it’s the only thing you'll want to wear if it's pouring with rain when you get out of the sea.
If you want to show a female surfer you love her this Christmas, say it with this coat.

8) Dead Kooks Nausea Longboard
Price: On Request
This is a present that says, 'you are my favourite person.'
Yes it's pricey, but look at it! This board from Dead Kooks is narrow through the front with plenty of kick in the backend.
If anyone wondering what's on the top of our Christmas list this year... you're looking at it.

Food just tastes better when your living on the beach.
Fresh seafood, outdoor cooking, natural ingredients - it's basically a whole lifestyle.
The Salt Water Kitchen Cookbook brings that lifestyle into your everyday - from big beach inspired feasts to healthy breakfast. This is the perfect gift for anyone who loves living the surf life.

10) Seea Surf Leggings
Price: £48.99 - £80.00
Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last few months, you’ll have heard about surf leggings.
The newest kid on the block in the surf world, these kicks are the perfect thing to throw on with a bikini top, for when you don’t fancy shredding in a pair of bikini bottoms.
They’re great in the water, they dry super fast and they even look great to wear in the beer garden post-surf, meaning you only have to take your flip flop and t shirt to the beach.
We love them and ever other surfer does too, especially when they look as pretty as this…

11) Roxy Board Sock
One of those things only surfers think about, board socks are necessary- but also cool.
This one is especially nice, coming in both purple and green. It's not thick enough to use for transporting a board on planes and trains, but is great for putting over on the walk down to the beach, or into town after a session.
Your surfer friend will be happily surprised that your thought of one - just make sure you get the right size for their board!

12) Indo Board
While we all want to spend our life in the line up, the reality is that for most, a life on the beach is short lived over the summer, before heading back to real life.
Every seasonal surfer knows that far from being like riding a bike, surfing skills can easily be lost from one summerto the next.
Put one of these indo board in the corner of your room and you keep working on your balance, even when you’re not in the water.
Every surfer will thank you for one of these guys- plus they’re great to bring out at parties swhen everyone’s had a few…

13) Let's Surf Anklet
If you’ve got the office surfer in the secret santa this year, look no further.
This adorable anklet is handmade, subtle and super cheap.
A pretty, thoughtful and well researched prezzie for under a fiver? Score! You can even stretch to some buying a nice bottle of wine as well, for extra bonus points!

14) Poler Surf Shirt
Surf clothing is awesome, but sometimes it can look a little samey, as well as sometimes a little serious.
If you’ve got a quirky surfer friend to find a prezzie for, let us direct you to this awesome shirt.
It’s got so many tiny surfers on that we spent a good five minutes looking at it when it came in Mpora HQ!
Also - it’ll look super cute next summer with beach hair, demin cut offs and a good pair of flip flops!

15) Salt Hoody
If you haven’t heard of Slat Clothing Company before, today is your lucky day!
Salt’s clothing is so goddamn cool. Laid back, unassuming, crazily well made. We lived in it over the past few summer months.
We’ve got a serious eye on this grey hoodie and have a fingers crossed that Santa is paying attention…..

We love Wanderlust Life jewellery. Handmade in Devon, they sell a range of gorgeous necklaces, bracelets and earrings inspired by the maker Georgie's travels around the world.
The necklace pictured is made from blue-green amazonite, a semi-precious stone. It is said to promote optimum health and discourage negativity.

Thump Clothing are an independent brand based in New Zealand. They make awesome ethical clothing - especially for surfers.
We're loving this limited edition road trip tee with a unique design by Japanese artist Iki Yasuo.
