Father's Day Gift Guide
Father’s Day is just around the corner, landing on Sunday 1st September, and we know how tough it is to find a gift for the main man in your life. To give you a little helping hand, we’ve put together the ultimate gift guide especially for the occasion this year. Whether he’s a surf nut or snow fanatic, check out our top picks for an epic pressie that’s guaranteed to get you favourite child status this Father’s Day.
Protect the minimal hearing he has left with Surf Ears, the adjustable ear plugs that let sound in and keep water out. The plugs protect the inside of the ears and help avoid the dreaded surfer's ear without affecting vital senses like hearing and balance.
Made using 57% recycled plastic bottles and cotton, Vissla's Fin Rope Hybrid Walkshorts are cool, quick dry shorts that’ll seamlessly take your dad from the boardwalk to the beach. They’re designed with a four-way stretch too, resulting in the perfect short for the upcoming summer surfs.
Put together an epic collection of goodies that’ll keep him stoked even when the waves are flat. Chuck in a Sexwax Air Freshener for the car; some Sticky Johnson Surf Wax; a bottle of Piss Off to clean up that stinky wetsuit; and a Phix Doctor ding repair kit for keeping his board watertight. Too easy.
If he’s heading to the snow this winter, help him keep his mitts warm with a cosy pair of gloves. Pow’s August Long Glove is one of our favourite styles at the moment, made with premium, water repellent leather and micro-fleece lining for maximum warmth.
Get him a hooded towel and you (plus everyone else in the car park) will be forever grateful. He can get in and out of his wetsuit without flashing, and yes he may look a bit goofy but at least he can get changed with his dignity intact. Head to our Downtown Store to grab one. Starting from $89.99.
A Bellroy wallet
Dad still stuffing notes, cards and coins in his pockets? Or worse still, using a velcro wallet? Bellroy produce premium hide leather wallets that come in sleek and simple designs to keep your dad’s cash in check. We have a range at our Downtown Store, starting from $89.99.
The comfiest jandals he’ll ever slip on his feet, the Reef Fanning jandal is created with anatomical arch support to keep your dad’s joints happy with style. Made with durable rubber that’s built to last, they also have a bottle opener incorporated into the sole, guaranteeing he’ll be the most popular guy at the barbecue.
A Technical Timekeeper
Logging swell, wind and tide times, the Rip Curl Search GPS 2 Surf Watch provides real-time surf conditions and GPS tracking for a number of activities, from surf and snow, to running and swimming. An accompanying app can also keep track of movements with a logbook, and he can connect, follow and share surf sessions with his mates for a little friendly competition. Amongst all the technical features, it also tells the time - winner. Head to our Downtown Store to pick a colour.
Mount Surf Shop Gift Voucher
Too tough a decision? You can’t go wrong with a Mount Surf Shop gift voucher. Head to our Downtown or Totara Street stores to hook your dad up with a voucher to spend in store and pick out his own present.
