The Surfing Christmas Gift Guide for 2015: share a ride with Santa

Try the 2017 edition.

The days are shorter, and we are reminded that it's time to start planning our wish lists for Christmas. Are you still out of ideas, for yourself or the surfers in your life? This year, we curated the best and newest surfing must-haves, to give you plenty of inspiration.

We hardly noticed it, but Christmas time is just around the corner, and it's time to please our inner surfer, or favorite surfer, with some extra special gifts.

The Christmas holidays are a welcome excuse to splurge on that wetsuit he or she coveted so much, to put a smile on a surfer's face with an unexpected surf drone or to replace a worn-out surf gear, after a summer of hard work on the water.

Although a surfer may be hard to impress, don't worry because there is always room for improvement and great new ideas to choose from.

After a whole year searching for the best and raddest surfing items, the surfers at SurferToday share what they are craving for Christmas 2015. Go ahead and get your inspiration on!
