SIJ’s Christmas Gift List – Hyperflex Surf Booties
Looking for a surf gift for your favorite hipster? Surf boots / gloves are an easy and much appreciated answer. My sis got me surf booties last year and I’ve worn them almost every session since.
Check these out: The Hyperflex AMP Split Toe Boot. We did some reading, and they were coted the #1 surf boot by MadeMan and received great reviews from our buddies at Mollusk Surf Shop; why? These Hyperflex Split Toe Surf Boots won the ‘best’ award due to their durability. Check the front and heel caps, they’ll keep you from scuffing on the rocks or when you drag your foot up the back of the board when taking off (if you’re an amateur like me). They’re also split toe, which not only allows you to have greater feel for your board and land more serious waves, but also to get your leash stuck in the gap between your toes and make you thrash around like an injured seal trying to get it out while you miss the wave of the day.
UPDATE: if you’re looking to take it to The Limit, check out this post on the Vibram FiveFingers KSO, maybe the greatest warm-water surf bootie since the dawn of time
