Stocking Stuffers: Last Minute SUP Ideas for the Paddle Boarder

You may already know the first lines from the poem by Clement Clarke Moore “A Visit from St. Nicholas”:

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be [putting cool SUP gifts] there;

Okay, that’s not exactly how it is written but this is an ideal time to find the right sized gift to fit in those carefully hung stockings for the stand up paddle boarder. Here’s a list of last minute, low cost stocking stuffers that the SUP fan in your house will thank you, or Santa, for.

EZ-Plug Handles. These handles do not require tools to install. The adhesive application is quick and once these handles are installed to your specifications, your board will be easy to transport from the garage to the car or the car to the water. The handles lie flat on your board and can be used on both flat and curved fiberglass surfaces.

FCS Paddle Board Straps. No roof rack? No problem with these adjustable paddle board straps. These straps work with or without a rack and on most vehicles. The nylon webbing and hidden metal lock cam system ensure your board will get to your destination.

GoPro Helmet Mount. There are a lot of situations where a helmet is a good piece of equipment to have. And if you need a helmet, you are probably doing something that will be incredibly memorable. And if you want to capture that SUP experience on film, you’ll need this GoPro Helmet Mount. This cool little item acts sits on your head like a headlamp but can be adjusted for live-action selfies.

GoPro Backdoor Float Case. Whomever pulls the Helmet Mount from their stocking will probably be looking for a HD Hero camera under the tree. So you should probably add this to the items in the stocking as well. This float case attaches directly to the HD Hero and allows you to spot your camera in the water.

SUP Cargo Net. If you’ve got stuff, this high quality bungee will keep it on the board using the clips that already come with your board. With any luck, the person who’s stocking you are filling won’t notice that you are setting them up to be both cinematographer and equipment transport.

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,

And away they all flew like the down of a thistle,

But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,

“Happy Christmas to all, [your next SUP experience will be alright].
