For the sun-seeking traveller
This water woman isn’t sticking around for the first frost of the season. Her wanderlust heart is set on warmer climes and you can bet she’s already booked her flights for her next tropical surf trip. Send her off on her travels with this Rip Curl One Piece to help her shred in style under the sun.
The Rip Curl “One” is the latest development from our women’s team. Designed with an engineered stretch body mapping fit it retains its shape with engineered support and contouring for most body types!
Rip Curl One Piece £74.99
For the stylish lady slider
Whether it’s cross-stepping her way to the nose of her 9 ‘6 log or mooching about town scouting out the coolest coffee hangouts, this water woman is all about style. Our organic cotton tote bag (with a rad lady slider design) will look oh-so-cool slung over her shoulder on town trips and beach walks, perfect for stashing her single fins, sketchbooks and second-hand finds.
For the winter warrior
Whilst some are itching to escape the winter, this water woman is rubbing her hands and eyeing up the charts, waiting for those epic winter swells to arrive. She lives for those magical mid-winter sessions where the off-shores are so fresh they could freeze your eyelashes to icicles. But she can’t survive the season without a 5/3 steamer! Made with Fusion Dry Seam Technology, featuring the most technically advanced seam construction and 100% E7 Flash Lining, splash out on Rip Curl’s newest Flashbomb Fusion wetsuit to keep her toasty warm this winter.
For the fresh-faced frother
Learning to surf is hard enough already without the cold to contend with. If the water woman in your life is struggling to find her sea legs, why not give her the gift of surfing with a Women + Waves gift voucher? That way she can kick-start her surfing journey with a private surf lesson or group training course with us in Newquay, or join us on for an epic surf trip with like-minded women in some of the best surf locations in the world!

For the dawn patroller
Nothing will stop this water woman from getting her daily dose of saltwater – not even a 9-5! When the rest of the town is still asleep, the dawn patroller is up with the lark and heading for a surf before her work day begins. Help her make the most of her precious ocean time with this trusty waterproof watch from Rip Curl. She’ll slide into work with seconds to spare (hair still wet and probably tangled with seaweed) but at least she’ll have scored before most people ate their brekkie.
For the cold water swimmer
Any chance for a quick dip and this water woman is straight in there! She’s always got her swimmers and booties in the car just in case she stumbles upon a new swimming spot, be it river, lake or sea. She loves that amazing ‘I’M ALIVE!!’ feeling after dunking her head under the icy water, but if she’s going to be out and about after her dip, she’ll want to keep her hair dry and head warm. Treat her to this lush new beanie from Rip Curl so she can stay warm and stylish with her head above water!
Rip Curl 2 Tone Beanie – £29.99
For the surfing bookworm
This water woman loves to get cosy by the fire and spend the winter evenings getting lost in a good book. Why not combine her two loves in life and treat her to some surf literature? Dr Easkey Britton’s book Ebb and Flow brings you into a deeper connection with the ocean and its healing powers, and will inspire the surfing bookworm to reflect on her own experiences in the water.
Ebb and Flow – £12.99
For the Women + Waves fangirl
And last but not least, for any Women + Waves fangirls out there – we’ve got a new collection of organic tees and jumpers! Our favourite pick for this season is the Clara Oversize Jumper in Oat, perfect for snuggling up in after a surf.
Clara Oversize Jumper – £55
