40 Water Sports Gifts

From Shark-Deterring Surf Leashes to Functional Origami Canoes

— December 23, 2016 — Lifestyle
The holiday season is a time of snowy days spent indoors in a sweater with a cup of hot cocoa, but some people constantly pine for warmer climes, and water sports gifts might be the ideal option for them. Of course, unless it's on a vacation during the holidays, water sports gifts won't get immediate use, but they'll be all the more satisfying when the flurries finally clear away.

There are many different types of water sports for people of all different physical capabilities. A surfer who constantly pushes for the most extreme environment might benefit from Sharkbanz and Modom Surf's 'Shark Leash,' which generates an electromagnetic signal to keep predatory fish away.

Those with a more casual connection to the water might enjoy the SipaBoard, an inflatable and motor-powered paddleboard that's easy to transport to the water's edge.
