5 Perfect Ideas to Gift Surfer Dads

Surfer Dad With the Barrel Assist

Struggling to find what to gift your surfer Dad this year? 

Instead of giving him another grainy CVS printed photo of the two of you in a cheapo frame, why not give him something he’ll actually use?

We’ve got the perfect list of quality and affordable products to gift your surfer Dad this Father’s Day.

1. Surf Bucket Hat

Surf Bucket Hat

When your Dad is out surfing and he remembers back to a time when the sun would beat down on his bald head (I’ve joined that club already!), he’s going to be so grateful he’s got a kid like you who was thoughtful enough to gift him a surf bucket hat to cover that up that dome.


  • Sun Protection for your face and neck (no need for sunscreen)
  • Adjustable chin straps
  • Mesh ear protection
  • Stays on during wipeouts and duck dives
  • Removeable neck flap
  • It floats

If you don’t think Pops is down with the 360 degree brim of our bucket hat, check out our Surf Cap for a sleeker look.

2. Wetsuit Changing Mat

Wetsuit Changing Mat

If Daddio surfs, then he’s definitely got a wetsuit. And he knows how smelly that thang can get when he leaves it in the trunk of his car after a lunch break surf sesh. Help the old man out this year and gift that surfer man a wetsuit changing mat.

Not only does it protect his suit when he changes in the parking lot, but the mat cinches up into a wet bag, keeping his car dry and the funky smell of his wetsuit contained.


  • Durable waterproof material
  • Protect your wetsuit and extend its life
  • Keep your car dry while transporting your wetsuit after surfing
  • Large enough to hold wetsuit and towel

Cinch up the funk!

3. Soft Top Surfboard

Soft Top Surfboards

Every good family man needs a durable soft top surfboard. No two ways about it. Not only is it fun for him on those smaller days, but it’s the perfect board to teach his kids how to surf.

You know what they say: You lend a surfer Dad a thruster, he’ll surf for a day. You gift a surfer Dad an 8’2″ soft top, he’ll surf forever.


  • Triple stringers reinforce the structure and ensure this board lasts you for years.
  • Wax & slip free with our “ALLIGATOR SKIN” deck layer.
  • Both sizes of our soft top surfboard come with set (3) of our premium FRP thruster fins. Fin tool and screws included for easy assembly.
  • 6 ounces of fiberglass cloth (2 on top, 1 on the bottom) finished in epoxy resin.
  • Free fast shipping.
  • 30 Day Money-Back Guarantee… if you don’t love your soft top surfboard for any reason, send it back within 30 days for a refund, no questions asked.

If Papa hasn’t put his Shreddie Van Halen days behind him yet, then he might be keen on our 5’6″ model to wax nostalgic on his old rodeo days.

4. Surfboard Car Racks

Now that Papa Bear has a new soft top and each one of his little cubs wants to learn how to surf, he’s got to figure out a way to get all of the boards and the family down to the beach in one trip.

Lord knows Dads don’t screw around with two trips…for anything! (But especially trips to the beach and groceries from the trunk of the car to the kitchen).

We got you covered with our versatile and easy-to-install surfboard car racks. It’s going to be a one-trip bonanza once your surfer Dad gets his mitts on these puppies.


  • Carry 3 Surfboards with ease
  • Universal (racks fit any car, truck, SUV, van, 2 or 4 door)
  • Padded racks keep your surfboards safe
  • Silicone Buckle Covers protect your car and surfboards

5. Ceiling/Wall Surfboard Racks

Okay, we got surfer Dad’s head covered up safely with the bucket hat.

His car isn’t stinky from his wetsuit because he’s now got the changing mat.

He’s got a soft top for himself and each one of his kids.

The roof racks are cherry on top of the car so he can get the whole family and their boards to the beach in one trip.

But now his garage is an absolute mess. Next to messing with the thermostat and an uncut lawn, a messy garage is right up there on the list of things that grind Dad’s gears.

Let’s get those gears purring once more and gift surfer Dad these ceiling or wall racks for all of his surfboards.


  • Easy installation.
  • Mounting hardware included.
  • Detailed Instruction manual with step by step photos included.
  • Powder-coated galvanized steel racks that won’t rust or corrode.
  • Dense Eva foam cushions included with each purchase to protect your surfboard.
  • Eva foam cushions are weather-proof to handle any elements.
  • Can be used indoors or outdoors for your convenience.
