Summer Gift Guide


As the weather gets warmer and we all start to migrate outside, it is time to make sure that the paddlers in our lives are well prepared and ready for a fun season ahead. We have put together a few gift ideas to treat yourself or excite a paddler in your life.



When out in the sun all day, it is important to stay hydrated. We know all too well that drinking water might not be on the top of the list, but it will aid in the longevity of time outside!


Klean Kanteen has some great insulated bottles that fit perfectly under our bungee system. Throw a few ice cubes in there before heading out on the water and enjoy a refreshing drink all day long!



There is no better feeling than paddling to the center of the lake and taking in the solitude around you. If you’ll be relaxing out there for a while, bring along a Coleman Stadium chair to make your rest a little more comfortable. Starting at around $15, it makes the perfect ‘surprise’ gift!



Looking to give the gift of paddling or upgrading the current quiver, a new paddle board is always a great option. Treat yourself or someone else to health, relaxation, and a fun new hobby. Whether shopping for the adventurer, fisherman, yogi, dog lover or just wanting to have fun, we have the right board for you. Take our Board Finder Quiz to see which board will fit your lifestyle.



Next up is a piece of gear every outdoors person needs, a UPF shirt! (Check out the men’s version here) This gift is perfect for when you or a loved one is on the water, hiking, or running to the grocery store. Not only is it the perfect lightweight tee, but it also is moisture-wicking and offers odor control for those more strenuous workouts.



When going out for a surf or a paddle, the thought of losing your keys can be nerve-racking. This handy FCS key lockbox will keep your keys dry and locked up until you are ready to leave. Nice for a group paddle or spending the day with family, if someone needs to get something out of the car anyone with the code will be able to access it!



Protection is a MUST when spending significant time in the sun. Sun and skin safety will keep your energy up and your body healthy! Always be sure to use sunscreen like this Mineral-Based one from Coola — water-resistant, Hawaii Reef Compliant, and Farm to Face! Count us in!



Last but certainly not least, is adding an upgraded accessory to your favorite paddleboard. For those who have a hardboard, a day bag is a perfect addition. If an inflatable is more your style, an electric pump is the best upgrade!
