By: Stephanie Brown

Last minute AWESOME Christmas gifts for the adventurous paddler on your list

If you know someone who hikes, paddles, mountain bikes, rock climbs, or even just majestically prances down forest trails, here are some awesome Christmas Gift ideas for you. This may be last minute but it will feel like you put a ton of thought in

1.WindPaddle Sails

This is perfect for the paddler on your list. These little sails attach to your kayak or sup and tow you along with wind power. There are two sizes available. The Scout is more suited to recreational paddling, inflatable craft, and sit on top type craft such as paddleboards. The Adventure model is more suited to the expedition kayak, single Canoe, fishing kayak and sit on top and recreational crafts as well. ‘Paddle like the wind’ just developed a whole new meaning.

3. Black Diamond remote charging station and lantern

The Moji Charging station is awesome, it’s a lantern that also charges your phone or other devices.
