Having trouble finding the perfect gift for the surfer in your life? Well you have come to the right place. We have created the ultimate surfer gift guide for your ocean loving friend.
The ultimate gift? A surfboard of course. What surfer doesn't love a new surfboard? They are like handbags, you can never have too many, so if your budget allows learn what board your friend is currently lusting over and go from there. Look for in-stock models if you need something quickly, otherwise ensure you take the production time into account if ordering a custom board. We may be biased, but we have an epic range of unique, bespoke boards to choose from. We can even custom make the size and shape you are after. Can't make a decision? Maybe a Gift Voucher is the best way to go.
One of the must have items for every surfer or outdoor enthusiast. Nothing beats the comfort and freedom with being about to surf freely without having to worry about your bags and keys sitting on the beach or worrying that your key may have slipped out of your wetsuit pocket. The FCS Key Lock is a weather protected combination lock that attaches to your car for the safe keeping of your keys while you are surfing.
There is nothing better than using your surfboards, but when they are pieces of art, you may as well have them on display for all to admire. Displaying surfboards gives your space the ultimate coastal chic vibe and although there are a lot of cool surfboard racks on the market, Formatt has caught our eye. Formatt is relatively new to the surfboard rack scene, and it is not to be missed. Inspired by a modernist design and with paired back precision, it has been styled with simplicity and natural form. Their sleek design in either black or white, is the perfect addition to a contemporary or beach house styled home.
Every surfer is familiar with the juggle of the car side wardrobe change. Whether you are changing in or out of a wetsuit, the struggle to keep your modesty is real. A hooded towel / surf poncho is the answer to avoiding potential wardrobe malfunctions. Another added bonus is they are warm and cosy after those post surf sessions.
Over the years, surf literature has grown into its own salty genre, packed with biographies, fiction and self help titles. Don't know where to start? Don't worry, we have put together a list of our favourite surfing books to inspire you. You can get the full list here.
This book was the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Autobiography, and is considered to be one of the best surf books ever written. You can stop your search right now.
William Finnegan first started surfing as a young boy in California and Hawaii. Barbarian Days is his immersive memoir of a life spent travelling the world chasing waves through the South Pacific, Australia, Asia, Africa, Peru and beyond. Finnegan describes the edgy yet enduring brotherhood forged among the swell of the surf; and recalling his own apprenticeship to the world's most famous and challenging waves, he considers the intense relationship formed between man, board and water.
Barbarian Days is an old-school adventure story, a social history, an extraordinary exploration of one man's gradual mastering of an exacting and little-understood art. It is a memoir of dangerous obsession and enchantment.

Susan Casey captures colossal, ship-swallowing waves, and the surfers and scientists who seek them out.
For legendary surfer Laird Hamilton, hundred foot waves represent the ultimate challenge. As Susan Casey travels the globe, hunting these monsters of the ocean with Hamilton's crew, she witnesses first-hand the life or death stakes, the glory, and the mystery of impossibly mammoth waves. Yet for the scientists who study them, these waves represent something truly scary brewing in the planet's waters. With inexorable verve, The Wave brilliantly portrays human beings confronting nature at its most ferocious.

Beach houses are styled differently to other interiors, as they are designed with one thing in mind. Relaxation. Whether they embrace a more traditional eclectic coastal style, or use contemporary minimalist elements, beach houses are synonymous with laid back simplicity.
Coastal homes embrace light and airy spaces and natural colours and textures. Neutral coloured interior’s flooded with natural light are calming and create a relaxed ambience. They help turn your home into a sanctuary, one that feels in harmony with its beautiful surrounds.
Whether you own a property by the beach or are looking to transform your space into a coastal styled relaxation zone, use these key elements to add that beach house style and sophisticated coastal chic to any abode.
