Top 5 gifts for the adventure junkie

With such fabulous warm weather we’re having at the moment, one simply cannot suppress the urge to get out and enjoy the outdoors.

By enjoy the outdoors I do not mean: just chill and bask in the sun while attempting to get a tan. No. You should be thinking adventure, thrills, escapade, risk, or anything that will make your heart race a little.

So, for this festive season I have compiled a list of what I think are the top 5 gifts for adventure junkies.  


Surfing as a sport in South Africa is gaining greater awareness and recognition across the globe thanks to some of our amazing beaches. South Africa is home to the no.2 surfing destination in the world. Jeffrey’s Bay, or J-Bay as it is more commonly known, is praised by the surfing community for the marvelous beaches with the perfect waves. Join in on the fun with these awesome surfboards for sale.

Jetskis and Boats

Surfing does require some skill and is not a walk in the park. So if you like the sea, but the lack of surfing skill holds you back, do not despair, there is hope. This time though, through the use of propelled machines.  Jet skis and boats will surely get you wet. So if you’re searching for a real adventure, try jet skiing. The power and maneuvering capabilities of jet skis  is to be revered. If you are looking to take a few people to sea, a boat might be the suitable alternative.


For those who like water,  but see the ocean as a daunting endless liquid mammoth, smaller bodies of water such as lakes and rivers should suffice, even though, in my humble opinion,  fishing in the ocean is more fun. Fishing is a very interesting activity which tends to be volatile in terms of bringing joy. On a good day, one can catch tons of  fish, and on a bad day, you could potentially head home empty handed. What is always guaranteed, though, is adventure in the great outdoors. Have a browse at these fishing rods. You might find the perfect gift for that special someone.

Mountain Bikes

If you’re not into water at all, you should get a mountain bike  and get fit while exploring anything from mountain ranges to sandy beaches. Mountain biking can be fun for the entire family and is a great way to get in  touch with nature.  

Motor Bikes

Take biking to the next level and get yourself a motor bike. That’s bound to get your adrenaline pumping. If you’ve ever watched Moto GP and seen what the likes of Valentino Rossi can do on a bike, I’m sure the thought of purchasing a motor bike has crossed your mind. However, it can be very dangerous. Ensure that you always wear protective gear and abide by the rules of the road.

Getting any of the products above will allow you to get into a new hobby and bring joy to your life.

Go on, get out there and have some fun.
