The Surfing Christmas Gift Guide for 2014

Welcome to The Surfing Christmas Gift Guide for 2014. If you have a surfer relative, friend or loved one, don't fret and plan ahead. Discover our curated selection of Christmas gift ideas.

We've handpicked the best surfing presents that will put a smile on any surfer's face, whether you are a savvy or a big spender Santa Claus.

A passionate surfer may seem hard to please, especially after years of practice and continuous investment in the sport. However, the surf industry keeps evolving and year after year there are new things all surfers want to put their hands on.

There's also always room for improvement or completion: a better wetsuit or surf watch, a new and exciting surfboard, a book or surf movie, a take on a new wave sport or even a good replacement for some of the most utilitarian items - backpacks, sunglasses, board travel bags, etc.
SurferToday's panel of surfers has gathered to select their dream selection of surfing gifts for Christmas 2014. Follow their lead and surprise your surfer (or yourself)!

EQ Unisex Seals Earplugs EQ Unisex Seals Earplugs
Exostosis, or surfer's ear, is a common ailment between surfers that can be prevented through the use of specific earplugs.
However, earplugs may interfere with balance and hearing and can also be uncomfortable, so it’s important to choose the right model.
We love EQ Seals earplugs because they are made of flexible, breathable silicone, mimicking the seal’s natural ability to close their ears while in the water, without any loss of performance.
