It's that time of year again!! 2020 has certainly been a tough one, and Christmas is going to be a bit different too for many of us this year. So that's even more of a reason to put a smile on a SUPboarders face this festive season, and give them something they’d really like!
Ok… it might not be the carbon board or SUPing adventure abroad they’ve been dreaming off but there are some great SUP accessories out there. Check out our SUPboarder Christmas gift suggestions which will suit any passionate paddleboarder…
Dryrobe - Changing robe
Available in both adults and kids sizes and a fab choice of colours these Dryrobes will certainly keep you cosy at the beach. Ideal as a changing robe, or an extra layer at the beach or to get you home into a hot shower! The SUPboarder Team live in theirs! (£80-£150)
Leash - Straight/Coiled/Quick Release
It’s just as important your leash is in good condition as well as your board and paddle. And that it’s the right type and length too! Expect to pay £25 + for a quality leash. Check out Starboard and Ocean and Earth who have a good selection.
Atom Pants - Waterproof Trousers
If you want to keep paddling in comfort all year round then you need some of these! Quality waterproof trousers from Palm with inbuilt waterproof socks, keeping not only your legs but also your feet dry and warm when launching and paddling in wetter conditions. Not cheap but we think well worth the money. (£170)

Electric Pump - For your iSUP
