Gift Guide: Surfers and Skaters

Surfers and skaters are like, the coolest kids in school. It's a daunting task shopping for the cool kids, isn't it? As somebody who has surfed once and gone through the requisite skate phase, I've been tasked with providing gift options for your favorite beach bums and knee scrapers. So if you've got one on your gift list, look no further.
