10 Gift Ideas for Paddlers

Some of these are obvious (like a paddle) while others are accessories we’ve found to be great companions when touring (like hammocks or camp chairs) or are even things we use on a daily basis (like wheels). Enjoy shopping for the paddler in your life! Have fun on the water and be safe.
