Gift Ideas For UK Surfers – Under £200

For something that doesn’t require you to re-mortgage your house, but is still main present material – we’ve got the £100-£200 category.

 

SEASHELL 3.0 Waterproof Changing Robe (£160)

Up and coming on the local surf scene are these brilliant SEASHELL waterproof changing robes. This year round changing robe is one of the best on the market at the moment and rivals popular alternatives from DryRobe and Northcore.

SeaShell-waterproof-changing-robe-best-gift-ideas-for-uk-surfers-thewaveshack.com--min-

 

SEASHELL’s long sleeve robes offer warmth, dryness, and protection whilst blending style with comfort. It features a 100% waterproof and windproof shell with a cozy sherpa fleece liner, as well as two large inside pockets and classic SEASHELL embroidery. This robe is perfect for changing in and out of your wetsuit on a cold day (especially in the UK). The two-way YKK zip ensures good access, while its oversize fit makes changing in and out of clothes easy. This is a must-have for budding UK surfers, and makes for a fantastic surfing gift.

 

AKASO Brave 7 LE (£139.99)

If you’re looking for a less expensive high performing surfing action camera, you can’t go far wrong with the AKASO Brave 7 LE.

This action camera can shoot in hyper-quality 4K at 30FPS video or 20MP photo whilst being completely weatherproof. Not only that, your underwater adventure can continue to 131FT/40M with the included waterproof housing equipped.

The vivid dual displays mean you can change views between back and front making it easier to use. The Brave 7 LE is also equipped with improved 6-axis EIS to greatly boost the stability and fluency of your recording.

Gift Ideas For UK Surfers – Under £100

If you’re still looking for something a bit cheaper than this next £50-100 section might be able to help.

 

Osprey Waterproof Changing Rope (£92.99)

If SEASHELL’s waterproof changing robe is not within budget, Osprey has created an equally competitive product that reviews very well.

Osprey-waterproof-changing-robe-best-gift-ideas-for-uk-surfers-thewaveshack.com--min

Although the Osprey version doesn’t quite have the build quality compared to SEASHELL, its value for money is through the roof. Features include a 100% waterproof outer shell with warm fleece lining, versatile pockets and easy two way zips. Did I also mention 20% of this changing robe is made from recycled bottles..?

 

Two Bare Feet Surfskate (£79.99)

Now, although this next gift doesn’t quite look like one for a surfer – don’t be fooled. Surfskates are skateboards designed to help surfers improve their balance and manoeuvrability. The trucks are built in a way that help the rider carve from left to right, generating their own power.

Two-Bare-Feet-Carving-Surfskate-Best-Gift-Ideas-For-UK-Surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

Two Bare Feet offer a well reviewed product for a great price. It’s not that unusual for the cost of a surfskate to go well past the £150 mark – so I think the above is great value. The design shown is just one from a large selection at the same price so go and check out the others using the link.

 

AKASO EK7000 Pro -Black (£69.99)

Another great value surfing action camera from AKASO is the very well reviewed AKASO EK7000 Pro.

AKASO-EK7000-black-best-gift-ideas-for-uk-surfers-thewaveshack.com--min

This surfer gift idea can shoot video in 4K/25fps, 2.7K/30fps, 1080P/60fps or photos with a 16 MP lens. The waterproof housing also means the EK7000 Pro is watertight until 131ft making a great present for any surfer wanting to video their sessions.

 

Bamboo Surfboard Rack (£59.99)

For those lucky enough to have more than a few surfboards, this surfboard rack from COR make a sturdy storage solution. This wall mount rack is the perfect display and storage solution for your surfboard, wakeboard, snowboard, skateboard, or kiteboard.

Gift Ideas For UK Surfers – Under £50

If you’re looking for some unique UK surfer gift ideas with the £25-50 price range this next bit is your section.

 

URBNFit Balance Board (£49.99)

Another interesting surfing gift that not everyone thinks of is the classic balance board. Built for the purpose of improving core stability and overall balance – this piece of kit can do wonders for surfers wanting to improve.

balance-board-best-gift-ideas-for-uk-surfers-thewaveshack.com--min

It’s not only useful for improving surfing technique, it can be used as part of your daily workout routine. The above is made by URBNFit and the five-star reviews speak for themselves.

 

COR Surfboard Universal Roof Rack Set (£49.99)

Anyone who travels to the beach in a car will need some sort of surfboard roof rack. Luckily, COR have produced this brilliant set to secure any surfboard to a cars roof.

 

surfboard-roof-rack-best-gift-ideas-for-uk-surfers-thewaveshack.com--min

 

The durable 600D oxford fabric pads make transporting surfboards, paddleboards or even kayaks a breeze. The set includes two rack pads and premium tie-down straps with silicone-coated cam-buckles to prevent damage. This roof rack set is also compatible with any car and doesn’t require roof bars to be installed making it a top-notch surfing gift.

 

SurfEars 3.0 (£49.95)

This next gift idea is not just a great surfing gift but they also help stop a common surfing condition known as Exostosis (also called surfers ear). With some great features and a premium build quality, it’s easy to see why these SurfEars 3.0 are leading the market for ear protection.

I’ve actually got a pair myself and they’re now essential for every surf trip I go on! Check out my own review of these SurfEars 3.0 in my ‘SurfEars 3.0 Review’ post for some more info.

Surf Ears 3.0 Surfing Ear Plugs

The technology within these surfing ear plugs goes a long way and they’re sure to last the test of time. Having surfed with and without these earplugs, I’d definitely recommend them as a top gift for regular surfers.

 

The British Surf Map (£39)

One of my favourite surfing gift ideas this one, and a fantastic addition to any surfer’s hideout… the British Surf Map from Malin & Mizen. This surf map features 190 of the UK’s best surf spots on one incredible, hand-drawn surface of your choice.

British-Surf-Map-Surfing-Gift-Idea

Available from £39 with plenty of options to customise the size, the surface type it’s printed on or whether to include a frame – this is a must have. Oh, and did I mention you can also get this fantastic British surf map as a beach towel as well?

And for all you lovely Irish and American surfers, Malin & Mizen have created some equally brilliant surf maps for Ireland and a number of surf maps for the coastlines of the US.

Carve Magazine Annual Subscription (£39)

For those who have all the surfing gear under the sun, this Carve magazine annual subscription for UK surfers is the perfect alternative.

Carve-Magazine-Annual-Subscription--Best-Gift-Ideas-For-UK-Surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

With five issues arriving throughout the year this magazine subscription is the gift that keeps on giving. Carve is Britains #1 Surfing Magazine, so they also know what they’re doing – making for great bathroom reading.

 

C-Monsta Wetsuit Hanger – V2 (£37.99)

The perfect gift for anyone who’s tried to hang up their soaking wet 5/6mm Winter wetsuit on a normal hanger, which has then snapped. People, this is THE wetsuit hanger you need to own, you only need to buy it once and it will last a lifetime.

c-monsta-wetsuit-hanger-v2

This C-Monsta V2 wetsuit hanger has had a slight re-design to make hanging all your wetsuit accessories easier than ever. I’ve owned the V1 version for years and it’s the type of surfing accessory I now can’t imagine living without. The new design makes this already great product an even better surfing gift for any avid surfer.

Casio W-S210H-1AVEG (£35.99)

If a surfing watch is on someone’s list of presents but you can’t stretch to the above Apple Watch Series 6 , this Casio might do the trick. It’s not got quite the amount of technological wizardry but does offer some useful features a surfer might love.

Casio-W-S210H-1AVEF-Best-Gift-Ideas-For-UK-Surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

The first feature is that it’s water resistant up to 100m, so there’s no worries when taking it for a surf. The second is the tide indicator, which shows the high and low tidal points at any location on any given date. It’s also got five daily alarms, a snooze feature and still enough room left to display the date and time.

 

Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) – Donation / Merch (£30)

I like to think any surfer worth their salt is, at heart, a budding environmentalist. We have our most fun amongst the waves, but it will only ever last as long as the waves are protected.

Surfers Against Sewage are a great charity that help protect our waves. They do this a number of ways, including pressurising government to hold polluting companies accountable.

Surfers-Against-Sewage-Donation--Best-Gift-Ideas-For-UK-Surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

There’s a few donation options including the usual one off donation or a recurring monthly donation. Surfers can also support the charity by purchasing any of their rad clothing merch from the shop.

 

Tenlacum Surfboard Sock (£29.99)

There’s one thing every surfer should have and that’s some level of protection for their surfboard. The cheapest protection you can get for any surfboard is a surfboard sock. Tenlacum have built a high quality surfboard sock for a great price.

Ho Stevie! Surfboard Sock-Best-Gift-Ideas-For-UK-Surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

These surfboard socks not only review well but also come in a good range of sizes from 5ft all the way up to 10ft 6″ – so should cover most. The high quality woven fabric protects the surfboard from any scrapes, dings and also UV sunlight. It also comes with a useful velcro pocket – great for storing spare wax and post surfing snacks.

 

Northcore Seat Covers (£29.95)

Another great surfing gift in this price category are these brilliant car seat covers from Northcore. As surfers, we get wet – this makes it very easy to get other things wet and salt water doesn’t mix well with fabrics.

northcore-seat-covers-best-gift-ideas-for-uk-surfers-thewaveshack.com

These car seat covers stop the common and unwanted lines left when saltwater dries on fabric. From experience, this is a present I wish I had before I ruined my car seats with saltwater lines!

 

Blackace 30L Dry Bag (£28.99)

A super useful gift for any UK surfer is a proper dry bag. There are a range of sizes from 5L all the way up to 30L. This premium version from Blackace is lightweight, comfortable to carry, puncture proof and even has it’s own pocket.

 

drybag-30l-best-gift-ideas-uk-surfers-thewaveshack.com

Perfect for those mega wet days where you need to keep everything inside your bag dry. At 30L in size this dry bag also has enough room for all your usual garments and comes with a premium waterproof phone case included.

 

The Wave Gift Vouchers (£25)

This surfing gift has already been mentioned, but if you’re short on time – The Wave have you covered.

Their e-vouchers can be used in full or part payment for any surfing lesson or session and can arrive via email almost instantaneously!

Gift Ideas For UK Surfers – Under £25

Now, if you’re looking for some smaller surfer gifts and presents this £10 – £25 section is for you.

 

Brentford’s Changing Robe & Towel Poncho (£24.99)

Another up and coming brand in the surfing game is Brentford. They’ve produced this top notch changing robe and surfers gift that rivals the big name players like Northcore and DryRobe. This particular changing robe is made from high quality microfibre and it’s a one size fits all – you literally can’t go wrong!

warm-changing-robe-best-gift-ideas-for-uk-surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

Made from 100% soft microfibre, this Brentford changing robe is sure to dry off an exhausted surfer in no time. It’s a great surfing present for those who enjoy privacy when changing in and out of their wetsuits, and it’s machine washable!

 

Frostfire Mooncode – Portable Lock Box (£24.99)

One of the biggest dilemmas surfers come across when surfing is knowing where to put there valuables. Frostfire have of course built a sturdy solution with their Mooncode key protection unit for this exact scenario.

Frostfire-Mooncode-Key-Storage-Best-Gift-Ideas-For-UK-Surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

Great for surfers who drive to the coast and need somewhere safe to keep their car keys or debit cards. These things offer maximum security and can be attached to a car door handle or to the bottom of a vehicles chassis.

 

Men’s Rash Vest (£23.99) / Women’s Rash Vests (£23.99)

Rash vests are a great gift for any surfer, especially in the UK. If it’s too hot in the summer, a rash vest is perfect – no need for the wetsuit. If it’s too cold in the winter, a rash vest is also perfect – time to get layered up. These things are useful all year round and are a great addition to any surfers wardrobe.

mens-rash-vest-best-gift-ideas-for-uk-surfers-thewaveshack.com-min-min

 

womens-rash-vest-best-gift-ideas-for-uk-surfers-thewaveshack.com-min-min-min

With a great range of sizes, sleeve lengths and colours, there are some great value and very well reviewed rash vests out there.

 

Osprey Wetsuit Changing Mat & Bag (£21.99)

One of the best value surfing accessories to have is a changing mat. It’s super handy for every surf session and can also be used to transport wet, sandy wetsuits home. This Osprey variant is the best reviewed on Amazon and will make a solid surfing gift.

If you fancied watching a review of a similar product, you might find my Northcore Wetsuit Changing Mat product review useful.

Osprey-Wetsuit-Changing-Mat-Best-Gifts-For-Surfers-UK-thewaveshack.com-min

I’ve taken my Northcore version on every single surfing trip since purchasing it and have recommended it to everyone who has asked about it… need I say more?

 

Osprey Wetsuit Hanger (£21.99)

Now, if the C-Monsta is a bit pricey Osprey have launched their own wetsuit hanger. If this is still a surprising gift believe me solid wetsuit hangers are understimated in the world of surfing. Not the full bells and whistles of the C-Monsta V2 but a very well reviewed wetsuit hanger nonetheless.

Osprey-wetsuit-hanger-Best-Gift-Ideas-For-UK-Surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

The key features setting it apart from everything else out there are it’s durability and robust build quality. It comes with an adjustable strap and large carabineer so can hold up an impressive 22kg!

This might just be the missing bit of kit every surfer has needed their entire life and didn’t even know it…

Fit-Flip Microfibre Towel (£21.99)

No surfer would be where they are today without a humble towel. This Fit-Flip microfibre towel is currently the best reviewed product in its class on Amazon with a range of sizes and colours. The sizes go from a small 50 x 30cm hand towel to a massive 200 x 100cm body towel.

Fit-Flip-Microfibre-Towel-Best-Gift-Ideas-For-UK-Surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

Being a microfibre towel, this thing is compact, lightweight and drys extremely quickly – so is perfect for a day tripping surfer. The ultra-soft material is made from the finest microfibre, boasting antibacterial benefits to prevent any build up of unpleasant odours. It also comes with a neat bag and has a 100-day money back guarantee!

 

Pickle Wax Remover (£21.95)

Every surfer who has ever removed wax from their surfboard knows just how hard it can be sometimes. Introducing the awesomely named Pickle Wax Remover…

Pickle-Wax-The-Remover-Best-Gift-Ideas-For-UK-Surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

Made from 100% recycled materials, the Pickle Wax Remover is an environmentally friendly way to freshen up any surfboard. Harsh chemicals like white spirit are no longer needed to restore a surfboard back to its original glory.

It’s a great little gift for any surfer and the pack also includes a surfboard wax comb as well!

 

Wavelength Magazine Annual Subscription (£20)

If the first surfing magazine subscription from Carve was out of budget, Wavelength might be able to help. Born out of Newquay, Cornwall this surfing magazine is truly at the heart of the UK surf scene.

Wavelength-Magazine-Annual-Subscription--Best-Gift-Ideas-For-UK-Surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

The annual subscription is £20 and four magazines land each year – one for each season. Similarly to the Carve magazine subscription, this is a surfing gift that keeps on giving making it a great present for any UK surfer.

 

Northcore Desktop Tidal Clock (£18.95)

If you’re looking for something a little less surfy and a little more homely, this tidal clock from Northcore is a nice alternative.

Northcore-Desktop-Tidal-Clock-Best-Gift-Ideas-For-UK-Surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

Made from natural bamboo with a laser etched face, this Northcore tide clock provides a guide to tide times at any selected location. It’s easy to setup and at 10cm x 10xm is the perfect size for a desk or counter top.

 

Basics Balance Board (£17.99)

Now, this is the second and slightly more wallet friendly balance board on this surfing gift list after the URBNFit Balance Board above. As mentioned before, these things are a great way for surfers to improve their core stability.

 

balance-board-best-gift-ideas-for-uk-surfers-thewaveshack.com-min-min

PowerBalance have been able to produce a really well reviewed balance board that offers all the same benefits as it’s expensive counterparts. It can hold up to an impressive 100kg in weight and is an effective way to improve balance and co-ordination.

 

GoPro Backdoor Floaty (£17.99)

Top potential cheap insurance present in this price category goes to the GoPro Backdoor Floaty. This is the perfect gift for anyone who has a GoPro and wants to make sure it doesn’t go missing when surfing.

GoPro-Bite-Mount-with-Floaty-Best-Gift-Ideas-For-UK-Surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

The Backdoor Floaty can attach directly to a GoPro or GoPro case (preferred method). It will stop a GoPro from sinking to the bottom of the ocean and the bright orange makes it easy to spot in the water. I’ve heard far too many stories of surfers bringing their brand new GoPro to the coast only to lose it on that very first session. Don’t let it be you people!

50 Places To Surf Before You Die (£17.99)

This book is an essential travel companion for surfers who love to surf and love to travel. It’s aimed at surfers of all levels who want to catch the perfect wave.

Surfers-book-Best-Gift-Ideas-For-UK-Surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

It’s reviewed incredibly well on Amazon and takes readers on a wide-roving adventure, divulging the details that make each surf spot unique. It even includes plenty of tips for those who aspire to surf there. It’s available in both hardback and kindle, so you can download it straight after purchase if you go for the electronic version!

 

Northcore Surfboard Leash (£16.95)

This surfing gift makes a lot of sense, it’s always a good idea to have a spare leash in the surf bag. There’s only a few things would be worse than snapping your leash after five minutes in the waves.

Northcore-Surfboard-Leash-Best-Gift-Ideas-For-UK-Surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

Unsurprisingly, Northcore have produced a very well reviewed, robust surfboard leash in sizes from 6-9ft. The 6mm thickness reduces the chance of it snapping and the dual swivel points reduce the chance of it getting tangled up.

If you’re unsure of what length to buy, get a leash the same length or a bit longer than the surfboard it’s getting attached to.

 

Huakunda Surf Hat (£15.99)

This next surfing gift idea is one of my favourites, a tried and tested, purpose built surf hat. This bucket hat was built with surfers in mind and Huakunda offer the best bang for buck on the market in this area.

If you enjoy surfing in the Summer, this is the best way to save on suncream and protect yourself from those UVA and UVB rays.

surf-hat-best-gift-ideas-for-uk-surfers-thewaveshack.com--min

The first surf related feature is the sturdy and adjustable chin strap, which makes sure it stays put during any big wipeouts. This model also comes with stiff edges so the rim doesn’t sag down when wet.

Huakunda have also offered a selection of colours just to make you easier to spot in the lineup. All in all, this is a great surfing gift that helps the wearer protect their skin when in and out of the waves.

 

Aquapac Keymaster (£15.95)

Here’s another surfing gift recommendation from personal experience – the Aquapac Keymaster. This is the solution I use to answer the question – where do I put my car key when I’m surfing?

Aquapac Keymaster Waterproof Case Portable

Perfect for any surfer that goes surfing on their own and needs somewhere to keep their electronic car key safe. If any of that sounds familiar or if you want more info – check out my Aquapac Keymaster product review.

 

Revival Surf Bag Repair Kit (£15)

This next gift idea is for those who have broken the zip on their surfboard bag and don’t want to shell out on a new one. This handy little set is created by The Revival Company and they’ve combined the perfect selection of tools for the job.

revival-surf-bag-repair-kit

In the bag there’s everything you need to repurpose a surfboard bag when the zips have broken. It’s cheaper and a much more environmentally friendly way of reusing a broken surfboard bag by fixing it!

For full details on how the repair kit works and the steps to follow, check out the link above.

 

WLSCTY Professional Ear Plugs (£13.99)

The second pair of ear plugs on this surfing gift list are from WLSCTY. Offering a extremely well reviewed solution at a much more affordable price.

surfing-ear-plugs-gift-ideas-uk-surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

These surfing ear plugs may not have all the premium features of the SurfEars 3.0 mentioned above, but still help prevent exostosis (also known as surfers ear). They’re made from soft silicone and the ergonomic design helps them fit comfortably inside the ear.

I’d recommend any frequent UK surfer to have a set of earplugs to reduce the chances of getting Exostosis. These not only make a decent stocking filler, but can prevent a common surfers health issue from developing over time.

World Surfspot Trumps Card Game (£12.99)

Now, this surfing gift idea is the perfect stocking filler – the World Surfspot Trumps card game. Putting that surfing twist on the classic top trumps, this pack of cards is a great thing to have spare in the car or van ready for the next weekend trip.

World-Surfspot-Trumps-Card-Game-thewaveshack.com-min

Each pack contains 34 professionally printed cards with ten comparable stats and there are currently three complete volumes available. There’s also more packs in the pipeline with UK specific and Ireland specific volumes coming soon.

 

SOLAREZ Ding Repair Travel Kit – (£12.95)

Another item that every surfer should have in their bag, the SOLAREZ Ding Repair Travel Kit. This well reviewed repair kit repairs cracks, breaks and ding damage so is useful to have spare if all goes wrong amongst the waves.

ding-repair-kit-gift-ideas-uk-surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

It comes with everything you’d need to repair a surfboard including instructions for how to do everything. This is one of those ‘wish you had it when you needed it’ kits, so even if it isn’t used straight away it’s still good to have in the bag.

 

Dirtbusters Coco Loco Wetsuit Cleaner (£11.95)

The surfing gift is another personal favourite of mine and also a brilliant wetsuit cleaner and deodouriser by Dirtbusters. This eco friendly wetsuit cleaner uses eucalyptus to help remove any unwanted smells from your wetsuit.

Coco-Loco-Wetsuit-Cleaner-Shampoo-Best-Gift-Ideas-For-UK-Surfers-thewaveshack.com-min

This is a product I’ve used and reviewed myself and would thoroughly recommend it. Check out the full post here – ‘Coco Loco Wetsuit Cleaner – Review’. It not only removes any bad smells from a wetsuit but also helps prolong a wetsuits life – an awesome little addition to any surfers kit.

Gift Ideas For UK Surfers – £10 and under

This brings us to the last pricing category – the £10 and under stocking filler section. Believe it or not, there are still some great surfing gifts for UK surfers in this price range.

 

The Wave Gift Vouchers (£10)

Third and final mention for this particular surfing gift – gift vouchers for The Wave.

These awesome vouchers can be used in full or part payment for any surfing lesson or session. They also arrive via email almost instantaneously!

The-Wave-Gift-Voucher-Card-£10-thewaveshack.com-min

Northcore Waterproof Key Pouch (£8.95)

This is the value option for those wanting to keep their car keys safe in a waterproof key pouch. Northcore have created a similar product to the Aquapac, but at a cheaper price.

With three levels of waterproofing this key pouch is sure to keep your car key safe and dry whilst surfing. Works until 10m water depth and is the perfect size for a standard electronic car key.

Surfing Log Book (£7.99)

Another really awesome book for anyone learning to surf is this surfing log book. It includes 100 pages of structured areas to fill in to remind yourself how each surfing session went.

It’s 15cm x 22cm and includes; Date, Location, Weather, Wave Size, Companions and many more. It’s a great way to keep a track of your progress and help focus on areas to improve in your next session.

 

Clear Ding Tape (£6.99)

For all the surfers who’ve damaged their surfboard during a session, this ones for you…

Northcore Ding Tape Surfboard Repair

Ding Tape is the quickest and easiest way to repair surfboard damage on the fly. It doesn’t require any mixing with glass and resin and can easily create a watertight repair in seconds.

 

Mr Zogs Sex Wax (£6.95)

No surfer is complete without a fresh block of wax for their next sesh. For that reason, here’s the number one surfboard wax (in my opinion) from Mr Zog.

Mr Zogs Sex Wax The Original Cold Water Single Pack - Coconut

This surf wax is perfect for UK waters and can also be used on skimboards, SUP paddle boards, kayaks and even drumsticks. There’s no such thing as too much wax when you’re a surfer. For that reason this is a perfect small gift for anyone who enjoys the waves.

 

100% Reclaimed Plastic Surfboard Wax Comb (£4.25)

This surfing gift idea is one of my favourites, e-combs wax comb made from 100% recycled ocean plastic. The plastic used to create it was taken from the marine industry and would have otherwise gone into landfill.

Personally, I think it’s a great way of redistributing plastic waste and at such a low price. It. also helps contribute towards those trying to keep our oceans plastic free, win win.

 

Gone Surfing Sign (£3.99)

Something a bit different but I  thought worthy of inclusion. This ‘Gone Surfing’ sign is great little stocking filler and is something we all want hung up 24/7.

Made in a contemporary style, this sign looks great hung up in a house or van. It’s a decent size at 20cm x 10cm, and has got some good reviews on Amazon.
