The perfect gift for any surf girl looking to pimp her ride.

Waterhaul Upcycled Sunglasses

Ok so it might not be the time of year that you generally think about buying sunglasses, BUT you haven't seen these yet. Waterhaul's Harlyn Aqua sunglasses are made from 100% recycled Cornish monofilament gill netting and use 0% virgin plastics. These monofilament nets are regarded as the most dangerous form of ghost net due to their high likelihood of entanglement, as they are virtually invisible underwater.

The turquoise ‘seaglass’ colouration of the Harlyn Aqua frame is entirely derived from the original netting and has no additional pigments or dyes.

The Wave Gift Vouchers

Looking for a gift for the person who has everything, then why not give the give of endless waves and an experience over possessions? The Wave gift vouchers can be simply redeemed against a surf lesson or surf session at The Wave. All the lucky recipient needs to do is choose their preferred surf session and add it to their basket. If you are not local to Bristol they also have safari tents where you can camp out and stroll to the surf. Perfect for booking in advance rather than a last minute surf trip based on a promising surf forecast.

I hope you have found some inspiration for the ocean dweller in your life. Be sure to share this blog or leave it open on your laptop if you want to drop any hints!
