Women's Surf Gift Guide
Finding the best gift for the lady ripper in your life can be a challenge, so the women of Cleanline Surf have compiled a list of the top gifts for women surfers. We’ll list gifts small and large, pricey and affordable. Our goal is to help you stoke out your loved ones without thinking twice about what to purchase. These gift ideas can be used for any celebratory occasion, whether a special Birthday or a thoughtful surprise. Each gift is hand-selected and used by women who surf, for women who surf.
Sunscreen - $2.95+
Sunscreen is a small gift for a surfer that goes a long way. Protecting your skin is key to staying fresh in and out of the lineup. Tinted sunscreens are fantastic for women who don’t want to have the classic ghost face out in the water and can even act as a foundation when rushing from the lineup to dinner. Small gifts like sunscreen are great for surfers as a stocking stuffer during the holidays or just an added birthday surprise. Our favorite sunscreen brand for women is Sun Bum and because it is made with humans and the Ocean in mind. It's also reef-safe sunscreens, comes in a wide range of SPF protection levels, and have tinted options.
Cleanline PNW Mug - $12.95
Don’t forget to snag our very own Cleanline PNW mug. It’s the perfect size for sipping hot tea before an early morning dawn patrol. Or better yet, mix up a fun cocktail after a satisfying day of riding the waves on your next surf weekend away. The ceramic material is sure to last and keep your liquid warm, making this mug an irresistible option time and time again. It’s small enough to fit in a stocking, or for that extra touch of sweetness, fill it to the brim with her favorite chocolates, creating a thoughtful gesture that she'll cherish, no matter the season.
Sunglasses - $112.00+
Sunnies are a practical and fashionable gift for a surfer. Not only do they look super cool, but sunglasses provide shade to protect her eyes while spending time in the sun. While this is a more expensive option, it’s a gift that goes a long way when chosen with quality in mind.
Surf Watch - $99.95+
A surf watch is an excellent gift for her that blends functionality and fashion. No more losing track of time in the waves and being late for events. A surf watch is great for a surfer on the go. The best part is that many surf watches now are not only made for surf but also everyday use. We’re big fans of the Nixon women's surf watch line. Nixon is known for sleek styles that can effortlessly transfer from hitting the lip to hitting the streets. Their line of women’s watches is a great gift for a surfer any time of the year.
Cleanline Apparel - $24.95+
What is a more fitting gift for a surfer girl than swag from a local surf shop? Cleanline Surf partners with local artists from the PNW coast to create clothing that captures the essence of surfing the Oregon Coast. Having solid basics with a local flare often stokes out lady surfers because it encompasses the surf lifestyle look. We love rocking the Lines Short Sleeve Crop. She will be stoked to rep Cleanline Surf gear any time of year.
Beach Towel or Blanket - $15.95+
A beach blanket or towel is a great gift for the surfer in your life. As a woman who surfs almost every day, having a high-quality towel or beach blanket makes life on the water much more enjoyable. Gifting a quality towel or blanket can make for easier tanning or changing on the beach. The gals at Cleanline Surf love the funky beach blankets and towels that Slowtide has to offer. Each towel features a unique design that fits anyone’s style. It is also perfect for hanging out on the beach post-surf or quickly drying off to head to your next destination.
C-Monsta V2 Wetsuit Hanger - $35.00
Are you tired of struggling with damp, smelly wetsuits, boots, and gloves after a thrilling day in the surf? Say goodbye to the hassle and hello to your new best friend - the C-Monsta Wetsuit Hanger V2. With a wider mouth to cradle your wetsuit lovingly, more accessory hooks for your gear, a stiffer top hook for stability, and a rounder wetsuit rail for that perfect fit – this hanger is a surfer's dream come true. The C-Monsta Wetsuit Hanger V2 isn't just for surfers like you. Whether you're a sailor, swimmer, paddleboarder, windsurfer, or a water-skier, this hanger promises to elevate your water adventures to a whole new level.
Surf Back Pack - $24.95+
Another excellent pack suggestion is a backpack made specifically for the surfing lifestyle. Most surfers want pockets to keep their accessories organized, comfortable straps for long mission trips, and something relatively stylish. We are big fans of the F-Light Surf Pack 40L by RipCurl. This backpack has tons of room for bathing suits, surf gear, and even a smaller wetsuit. As ladies, we appreciate extra space for things like a change of clothes, a hairbrush, and other accessories.
Patagonia Torrentshell 3L Jacket - $179.00
Any avid surfer, especially in the Pacific North West, understands the necessity of a solid rain jacket. Your lady surfing friend will appreciate a new rain jacket when the skies start dumping rain while out on a surf check. Having a reliable jacket, like the Patagonia Torrentshell, is a game-changer. Constructed out of 100% recycled waterproof/breathable fabric, along with an adjustable hood, the Torrentshell gets the job done, all while backed up with Patagonia's Ironclad Guarantee warranty program.
Surf Leash - $22.95+
Another gift idea for the surfer girl in your life is a new leash. She’ll be stoked to know that her board is secure and not headed to the shoreline with the strength of an upgraded new leash. Many brands offer a wide variety of colors, making it easy to select the perfect match for her surfer vibe. We love the FCS Helix leashes. These leashes are available in all-around, competition, and calf styles. We recommend going foot for foot: 7’ board pairs with a 7’ leash. Filter the sizes depending on whether your girl is a short border charging big waves or cruising small rollers on a log.
Surfboard Traction - $34.95+
If the surfer in your life is a short boarder, traction is a great gift idea to have. Traction can help improve her surfing by adding grip to the board when executing aggressive maneuvers on the wave. Not to mention, traction can help customize the look of a surfboard. One of our favorite brands is Octopus. Their designs and colors are sleek and add a modern look to anyone’s quiver while providing an amazing grip.
Changing Poncho - $49.95+
As a woman surfer changing in a public parking lot, privacy is sometimes challenging. A changing poncho is one of the best gifts to snag for the lady ripper in your life. Having this in her pack is a game-changer because she can freely change anywhere she needs, dry off in a snap, and ride home in a giant towel dress. Is there a better feeling? Slowtide Ponchos are a popular choice with their colorful prints, cozy hand pocket, and highly absorbent material.
Balance Board - $194.95+
Improving technique is the ultimate goal for any surfer. Buying your surfer girl a balance board is the perfect gift to help her pursue her surfing goals out of the water. It’s the ideal way to pass the time while watching surf contests or practicing when there is a lull between swells. Cleanline offers a few fun designs to choose from that will fit a wide range of lady surf vibes.
Blundstone Boots - $214.95+
Looking for that special something for that adventurer in your life? Blundstone is known for its stylish and tough boots. Don’t be surprised to see these things last for decades. The high-quality leather holds up to the use and abuse of the surf lifestyle. Did I mention that they’re incredibly comfortable? Your gal won’t resist the urge to wear her Blundstones for pretty much any occasion.
Sticky Bumps Wax Box / Comb - $6.50
Goey melted wax is a surfer's worst nightmare. If it gets on fabric, there is no getting it out. Prevent the worst. Snag her the most simple yet practical gift a surfer could have: a wax box! The box comes with a comb to keep the wax on her board as fresh as possible.
Cleanline Beanie - $26.95
Feel good and look even better in the timeless Cleanline Beanie. This affordable gift is great for any lady ripper, whether charging hurricane swells on the east coast or plowing thru snow drifts on the great lakes of Michigan.
