The Best Sustainable Christmas Gifts for Surfers

Many consumers are looking for environmentally-friendly ways to celebrate the festive season. At Surfd, we believe that business can be a force for good. There is a whole movement dedicated to what is called stakeholder capitalism: respecting all stakeholders rather than just the bottom line. This movement is called BCorp and many organizations in the surf industry have wholeheartedly embraced this approach to business, with Patagonia leading the way.

When it comes to gifting, we know that may of you want to choose products that are:

  • Ethically produced – fair supply chains and manufacturing
  • Environmentally-friendly – low carbon, recycled or repurposed materials
  • Made to last – fast fashion is an ecological disaster
  • Look, feel and function with excellence – being sustainable doesn’t mean a product should be boring

Guide to Sustainable Surf Gifts

This year we have produced three gift selections:

  • gifts for men
  • gifts for women
  • gifts for groms (surfer kids)

The gift guide features items from Outerknown, Patagonia, Salt Gypsy, Vissla and many more. When making your decision, let price be a factor but remember that investing more now often means that the product will last much longer. For example, we at Surfd purchased an Outerknown blanket shirt three years ago and it looks as good (maybe better) than it did when first unwrapped.
