The ultimate watersports gift guide
With the holiday season well and truly upon us, it’s time to find the perfect gifts for the people you care about. From our versatile wetsuits and cosy accessories we have lots of great options to help you choose. Check out our top selections below:
For the one who is always cold:
There’s always one who never gets their layering right, so maybe as a start educate them on the layering system so they know what to do.
Aquafleece® can pretty much guarantee some extra warmth on/off the water, in particular the Pro Aquafleece Spray Top can make the difference for those who get cooler on the water. Combine this with hot hands and hot socks to keep the extremities toasty with reflective titanium technology.
Perfect for wetter days to keep your head snug is the waterproof, with bonded inner fleece lined Pro Aquafleece beanie.
The one who can’t decide which sport they prefer:
One of our most versatile products is the hydrophobic moisture wicking Polypro top that can be used across multiple sports as a warming base layer. A great addition to your kit bag for sailing, surfing, paddleboarding, kayaking, kitesurfing and more.
For taking out your extra layers, snacks, phone and more we recommend our 10L roll top dry bag, a classic but handy product for taking out on your boat/ board/ vessel.
For your biggest fan / supporter:
Have a loved one who prefers to support you from the shore / sidelines? Make sure they stay warm with an oversized warm jacket. For someone who prefers a larger more snuggly coat, you can pre order our Aquafleece® Robe here. Alternatively for someone who is a bit more active and would prefer a shorter fit with less bulk the Pro Aquafleece® Rigging Coat is the one.
A great all round bag from our latest collaboration with local chandlery Sandy Point, made from repurposed sails down at Hayling Island Sailing Club, this bag works well for fitting all your essentials in.
Someone who is always on the go:
New this year, our 35L waterproof backpack is perfect for taking on the water, but also off the water: travelling, commuting, exploring and every day use. With multiple pockets inside and out, waterproof construction and even a reflective strip this bag is sure to set you up for any adventure.
The Classic sunglasses are polarised and great for everyday use to keep the glare out of your face when you’re on the move.
The fair weather watersporter:
We all know and love someone who only ever goes out on the water when the weather is perfect - “if its not sunny and twelve knots, I’m not going”. For these friends that only venture out in the summer months, stay protected from the summer rays with a UVF 50+ tech top ideal for on and off the water. Keep the UV rays also off your face with a trusty cap with a meshy back panel to increase ventilation.
Dinghy Sailing enthusiast:
Classic by nature, classic by style and classic by name: The ¾ Classic Hikers 4/3mm are a timeless addition to any kitbag. They can be worn all year round - on their own in the summer or with our UV protective rash leggings underneath or add an extra warm layer underneath, like our hot legs, and wear them as the weather gets colder.
