Christmas gifts for water sports lovers

November 28, 2023

With Christmas around the corner, it can be challenging to start thinking about the perfect gift for our loved ones especially when they are water sports enthusiasts and lovers of all things adventure. At MAD Water Sports we recognise that spending time outside isn’t just limited to the warmer seasons but instead, something that can be enjoyed all year round. Our wide selection of gifts is guaranteed to get the surfers, explorers and bikers outside, whether they enjoy spending time at sea in the swell or on the coast traversing Cornwall’s diverse landscape.


Known for its innovation and versatility, GoPro lets people capture their adventures on the water and beyond, whether it’s with cameras or a whole host of essential accessories. One example includes the Hero12 Black Speciality Bundle which takes GoPro’s best-in-class quality to the next level. It has a redesigned power management system for improved thermal performance, Bluetooth audio support for Apple Airpods and run times that are nearly twice as long.

Changing robes

Get changed, stay dry and keep warm with changing robes like the Surflogic Storm Robe, designed to keep you cosy after a few hours in the chilly waves. Not only is the outer shell fabric waterproof and windproof, its long sleeves and warm synthetic lining are designed to warm the wearer as quickly as possible, too. Keep your hands tucked inside the fleece-lined pockets too by storing your belongings in the internal and external zip pocket. Alternatively, look at the O&E robe and the Sola, the perfect thing to get snug after a session of surfing, SUP, scuba diving, kayaking, canoeing, windsurfing, kite surfing, wakeboarding, or any other outdoor sport.

Reusable drinks bottle 

Just one includes the Bottle'UP, a reusable and isothermal bottle with innovative capabilities. In addition to these features, the bottle is leak-proof, shock-resistant and boasts a high insulation performance, making it essential for a day on the water. Similarly, the O&E insulated coffee mug was designed to keep liquid cool for 24 hours and hot for up to 12 while the isothermal lunch box makes refuelling on the go a breeze.

Winter hats and gloves

Made of Merino wool with a cable knit design, the Kelsey beanie is lined with luxurious fleece and topped off with a faux fur pom for a stylish solution to icy breezes this winter. Just like the Kelsey beanie, the Dakine Penelope beanie is fantastically soft and is perfect for keeping your ski cap in shape whereas the Lumberman beanie offers itch–free comfort. Keep your head and ears protected from the bitter chill while continuing to make the most of the outdoors during one of the most beautiful seasons.

With so much choice there is no excuse not to get out on the water.

Winter wetsuit

A new wetsuit truly is the perfect gift for the water sports enthusiast in your life, particularly as the temperatures drop. With designs for both men and women, winter wetsuits generate more heat, the more you surf, keeping those winter sessions going for longer. One of the quickest ways to get cold in the water is through heat loss via the head which the hooded design of the Infiniti prevents, while the engineered fit system means the wetsuit feels like a second skin.

Wetsuit gloves

These gloves are extremely high-performance in terms of flexibility and warmth. The Xcel gloves even encompass the latest technology with super stretch neoprene allowing you to move your hands without restriction while the thermal lining retains body heat. Stay toasty in and out of the water!

Surf accessories

After a day in rivers, lakes and oceans, it’s important that you have the right surf accessories for another day of adventure. There is nothing worse than pulling on a cold, damp wetsuit and this is where the ultimate wetsuit hanger from C-monsta comes in. Born in the north of Scotland from a love of cold water, C-monsta has created this hanger from recycled plastic to reduce the drying time of your wetsuit, boots and gloves all at once.  It is robust, lightweight and tested by cold water surfers so you can trust that it is the best hanger for the job.

SUPER73 e-bike

When it comes to choosing your e-bike this Adventure Series flagship model includes full suspension, improved weight distribution and wiggle room on the seat to make it the best ride on offer. It has a range of impressive features from four speed levels and a repositioned battery to pedal assist modes and a McFly handlebar.

Don’t forget to stay safe and pick up your stylish helmet from Thousand Helmets; this company began after the founder, Gloria Hwang, lost her best friend in a cycle accident because she wasn’t wearing any head protection. Today she is aiming to save one thousand lives, offering a replacement helmet for free if it gets stolen or damaged in an accident.
