A Surfboard Bag is the Perfect Holiday Gift For the Surfer in Your Life

With Halloween over, the holiday shopping season has officially begun. If you're already struggling with gift ideas for the surf fanatic in your life, take a deep breath and let us lend you a helping hand. While board shorts and sunglasses are first-rate gift ideas, this year you may want to think outside of the box and give your surf obsessed loved one a surfboard bag as a present.

Why A Board Bag?
Nothing says I love you like providing a surfer with the means to protect their surfboard, and board bags do just that. Surfboards face all sorts of dangers when out of the water. If a board isn't properly protected something as simple as a bumpy ride to the beach can leave it dented and scratched. A surfboard bag provides a barrier around a board, meaning bumpy car rides or falls won't leave it damaged and in need of repair.

Types Of Surfboard Bags
  • If your loved one sticks to local beaches, a board sock is a great holiday gift choice. Board socks offer a thin layer of protection, which is perfect for short rides to nearby surf spots. They also safeguard surfboards against sun damage.
  • A day bag is equipped with foam padding, meaning it provides more protection than a board sock. If your family member or friend travels a few hours to find the best surfing spot, the sturdier day bag is an ideal fit for their surfing lifestyle.
  • The travel bag supplies the ultimate protection for surfboards. The extra thick padding is essential for a long distance journey, especially if your loved one and their surfboard are boarding an airplane. The added room in a travel bag also allows your family member or friend to carry more than one surfboard with them, which is extremely handy when their trip takes them far away from their home.
If a surfboard bag sounds like the perfect holiday gift, please contact us today. We offer free ground shipping to the lower 48 states and if you find an item priced lower than ours, we'll beat it by 10%, guaranteed.
