Gifts for Surf Dad

Gifts for Surf Dad

Dads are about function and practicality, but that doesn't mean they can't have good style too.  Here are a few gift ideas for your favorite #radsurfdad 

1. 6'6 Pleasant Pheasant

Whether your Dad is a life-long shortboarder who has aged out of his current quiver, or a dyed in the wool retro board guy, the Pleasant Pheasant blends optimal wave-catching ability with the maneuverability he craves.  This makes a great travel board because its ideal for a trip when you don't know what conditions the Ocean is going to throw at you.

2. Waterproof Surf Backpack

The window of opportunity to surf is often limited—ensure that all Dad's essentials are ready to go at a moment's notice by keeping them all in this waterproof surf backpack.  When the conditions and your schedule align, you don't want to be fussing around looking for a bar of wax or a fin key.

3. Navy Almond Trucker Hat

This hat fits the widest array of head shapes and sizes of any hat we've ever found.  Whether your dad has a tiny head or a giant melon, chances are he'll look darn good in this hat.

4. Gift Card

Buying a surfboard for someone else is a stressful proposition—on the one hand you want to show them that you planned ahead, but on the other hand, you want to make sure they get exactly what they want.  Safest bet is to go with a Gift Card, and we'll help guide them to their next dream board.

5. Slowtide Towel

The perfect blend of form and function—these Slowtide towels say "Yes, I'm practical, but I'm also a stylish Dad."

6. San Onofre Surf Flag

San Onofre is a hub of longboard surf culture.  There's also a wave here called Old Man's which may be perfect for your Old Man.

7. 7'0 Pro Leash from SYMPL

The seven foot long leash pairs perfectly with the 6'6 Pleasant Pheasant, and will help Dad avoid trips to the Ding Doctor.

8. BYRD Texturizing Surf Spray

Whether your Dad has a full head of Clooney-esque hair, or is starting to thin on top, a little extra salt-water volume and texture never hurt anybody.

9. Pleasant Pheasant Side Bites

Standard on the Pleasant Pheasant, these side-bites provide extra drive.

Drive means when your Dad applies pressure to the rail of his new surfboard, these fins will help transfer that energy into down-the-line speed! (It's a good thing)

10. 7.75" Flex Fin

Standard on the Pleasant Pheasant, this 7.75" flex fin provides the right amount of surface area to get the most out of this board.

11. Almond Largest Coffee Mug

Because a coffee-fueled morning is something most of us benefit from—don't hold back by giving Dad a thimble worth of coffee, he deserves the whole pot.
