Holiday Gift Guide for Paddlers

Posted: 12.15.2014

Nothing beats the majesty of receiving a new kayak (or a paddle or dry top) from someone you love. With the holidays just around the corner, we have created a gift list of the best presents for just about anyone on your list looking to spend time outside, whether they love kayaking, fishing, canoeing or just want to get some exercise on the water. Not all of these items will fit in a gift box, but they will certainly make the outdoor enthusiasts on your list very happy!

If you are trying to find a present for someone who says things such as, “If it was easy, it would be called catching,” the Wilderness Systems AirPRO MAX Hi/Lo Seat is probably at the top of their list. The award winning AirPro MAX will make fishing more fun, comfortable, and even easier to spot fish from the seat of their Ride kayak.

The Wilderness Systems Thresher kayak is also sure to make the angler in your life overjoyed. They may miss the rest of the gift opening celebration as they will certainly be busy customizing their new boat, but they will think of you every time they reel in a big one.

Speaking of fishing, Adventure Technology’s new angler series paddles feature a measuring tape graphic on the shaft that will help them decide if it’s a keeper, a line hook on the blade, and reinforced Duraweave™ tips on the blades for added abrasion resistance on rocks, sand and in shallow water.

For kayakers more interested in touring, whitewater or recreation, Adventure Technology has a paddle for every type of boater (even kids!) and all budgets ($90 to $500). AT’s easy paddle finder asks a few simple questions such as “whitewater” or “touring” that help you pick out the perfect paddle based on the type of kayaking they will be doing, their height, and their ability.

Bomber Gear has gifts for the whole paddling family from sun protection shirts to sprayskirts to drysuits. Luckily for you, Bomber Gear is offering up to 40% off closeout items through the end of December.
