Kids Gift Guide

Parenting a budding young surfing world champ is undoubtedly a full-time job. Dawn surf chauffeuring, nutrient-rich meal prepping, and expert filming and editing, are a mere few of the daily tasks involved… So, it’s fair enough you haven’t gotten around to the chrissy presents just yet! Never fear, the surf-mums and rad-dads amongst the Rip Curl ranks have banded together to tally up the best Christmas gifts for boys and girls who shred! That way you can lock in the presents nice and early and keep your eyes on the task at hand! Because you know they’re going to ask at the end of the day, “Did you see that one!?”.

Kids Wetsuits

It seems that younger surfer’s always seem to outlast their elders in icy waters through sheer froth and determination. That said a good wetsuit is an essential for a little shredder and chattering teeth are not what you want! As a general rule; go Flashbomb (ultimate warmth). If they feel the cold, E-Bomb (unparalleled stretch/performance). If they’re chasing that 2040 Olympic gold medal, and Dawn Patrol (durability) if they have a tendency to destroy things. A Rip Curl wetsuit is an epic gift. Signed, sealed, delivered!
