Christmas is just 12 days away, and it’s likely you still have a couple gifts left on your list! And even if you don’t, you might not be able to resist the great products and deals in our holiday gear guide below. In honor of Frederic Austin’s 1780s hit, “The 12 Days of Christmas,” we will feature 12 products between now and December 25th. Some are AWS staff favorites and some are blowout deals you won’t want to miss! Check back every day to see which gifts you need for your loved ones… or maybe even yourself.
O’Neill Assault & Boost drysuits
Winter is here and it is in full force. For the dedicated riders in your life that can’t wait around for warm water, give them the gift of an O’Neill drysuit. Choose between a full drysuit, the Boost, and a hybrid drysuit, the Assault. Both have a loose fit so you can wear clothes underneath for extra heat in cold temperatures and skin-tight cuffs to resist water from seeping in. They are both currently on sale and available in sizes S-XL.
2014 Remote Hooker wakeskate
Wakeskating is growing fast as the next big water sport. The 40.5 Hooker is currently on sale, and it’s the perfect wakeskate to have on the boat or to grab the winch and ride. With decks made of Pacific Northwest pinewood and plastered with a grip-tape top, these wakeskates are made of bulletproof construction for the heaviest rides. For more sizes and graphics, also check out the 2017 Remote wakeskates.
2017 Ronix One boots
The Ronix One boots have always been a favorite for us at AWS, but this year they are flashier than ever. The One boots are designed with Brainframe Technology and Intuition + Liners that heat mold to the exact shape of your foot. The frames are are stiff to support your legs when edging and landing tricks, and the liners are soft for total comfort the whole ride through. This year’s design comes in two color ways, Polar Flash and Flash Midnight. Both are inspired by the Northern Lights and will turn heads when the light hits them just right.
Nixon Star Wars Time Teller/O’Neill Laser Tag T-shirt
In light of the world premiere of the newest movie in the Star Wars series, Rogue One, our next suggested gift is the Nixon Star Wars Time Teller. This stainless steel watch matches just about everything, including this O’Neill T-shirt (only available in-store for $21.95). This particular watch is inspired by Darth Vader, has a debossed Imperial logo and a lightsaber seconds hand. Check out our other watches for more gift ideas for the Stars Wars lover in your life.
2016 Liquid Force Dart
The Liquid Force Dart is an ideal surfboard to have on the boat for beginner riders to advanced riders, and it’s now on sale. Its extra buoyancy makes for effortless maneuvering and its wide tail makes it stable so everyone can ride a smaller board. It also has five fin set-up options so you can customize your ride. It is available in 4’4″, 4’8″, and 5’3″, but get one before they’re gone!
You can track the speed and distance of every cut, turn, jump, air-time and even the occasional wipe out with the Trace. The Trace mounts directly onto your wakeboard, surfboard, wakeskate or ski to ensure you know your improvements with every session. The Trace App also connects with your GoPro App and automatically edits your shots so you can share only the best footage.
2016 HO TX
The HO TX is the ultimate cross-over ski, where Clean Edge technology meets high performance. It has an increased surface area for speeds around 32 mph, so you enjoy the ride with less work. Its inward facing sidewalls and lack of bevels in the tail make for 50% less drag. Tap into performance and efficiency with this HO ski, that is now on sale. Also throw on a Freemax boot and adjustable rear toe plate for a complete set up!
Bucket of Babes
While your boat is most likely put away for the winter, it’s never too early to start thinking about the day you get to bring it out on the water. And you want to be prepared to keep it in tip-top shape with a Bucket of Babes. It comes complete with a 16 oz. bottle of Boat Bright, Seat Soap, Spot Solver, Seat Saver, Boot Butter, Boat Bubbles, an additional gallon of Babe’s Boat Bright, and a 4-pack of Extreme Performance Towels. Get it now while it’s on sale!
2017 Slingshot Solo
Alliance Wake named the Slingshot Solo the “King of the Park,” and we have to agree. Its Flex Tip Technology creates smooth presses on the rail. And its subtle channels increase traction and stiffen the center sweet spot for bigger pop off the wake. Finally, the V-Spine at either end breaks up water tension for soft landings, both behind the boat and in the park. It comes in three colors, depending on the size you need to be as stoked as we are about this board.
GoPro Hero 5
Voice control, waterproof, 4K video — what more could you want in a camera? With the latest cameras to the GoPro family, the Hero5 Black and the Hero5 Session, you can capture all of you memories out on the boat with just the click of a button. Then instantly share your photos and edits via the GoPro app. Both cameras are available for purchase in either of our shops. Also, be on the lookout for the Karma Drone and Stabilizer, which will be released soon!
Whether you’re out on the boat or shredding the cable park, there’s no better way to protect your dome than with a helmet! AWS has you covered with this Sandbox Classic 2.0 Low Rider. It is similar to a skate-style helmet with a brim and soft-core EVA liner. This helmet and others are available for $80 in both of our shops.
2016 Liquid Force Witness
The Liquid Force Witness is the ultimate intermediate board to have on the boat that everyone can ride. It comes with a removable center fin for centered stability and is a three-stage hybrid rocker, so riders can easily transition from continuous rocker to three-stage. This board will help you and your friends reach the next level of riding! It is currently on sale and available in a 136, 140 or 144.
