Top Christmas Gifts from OVAP! 🎄🎁

Christmas is almost here, but we are still thinking about paddling! We know that other paddlers like us are also looking forward to getting on the water in summer of 2023. Some of us are even still paddling now (stay warm!). Trying to figure out what to buy your paddling friend or family member this holiday season? Why not try a little bit of Christmas shopping at OVAP!

We have created a list of some of our great products that would make awesome gifts for the outdoors enthusiast in your life! Check out these fun gift ideas for Christmas 2022!


For the Oru Kayaker

Oru Paddle - $99
These paddles are great entry level kayak paddles and they pack down really small so you can put it right in your kayak box.

Oru Pack - $199
This backpack style bag is great for prospecting your boat and taking it on trips.

Oru Spray Skirt - $79
These are a great addition to the closed cockpit boats (the Bay or Coast) to keep water out of on choppy days or if you want to roll the kayak.

Oru Seat Wedge - $25
Want to elevate you comfort? These add some extra cushion under your butt and make those long paddles more enjoyable.

Oru Float Bags - $59
Blow these up and put them in the ends of the boat to provide additional buoyancy if water gets into the boat.

Oru Repair Kit - $15
The Oru Kayaks are rated 20,000 folds, but accidents happen. And in this case, having a repair kit on board can be a helpful addition to any Oru kayak owner. 

For the Stand Up Paddler

Electric Pump - $149
If you own an inflatable paddleboard or kayak, you are going to want an electric pump. Manually inflating boats can be time consuming and strenuous, especially on hot days!

Kayak Conversion Kit - $215
This will allow you to sit down on your paddleboard and transform it into a sit-on-top kayak

SUP Essentials Kit - $25
Paddleboarders only need rope and a flashlight, don't overdo it with a large safety kit, try the SUP essentials kit instead! 

Atoll Dry Bag Waist Pouch - $55
Keep your valuables safe and dry on your next paddle boarding adventure with the Overkill waist pack from Atoll Boards.

SUP Leash - $25
Never lose track of your board with our 10’ Weekender Paddle Board Leash. Customize the look of your leash with 4 vibrant colour choices! 

For the Yogi

Anchor Kit - $50
You can't do SUP yoga without an anchor! Attach this anchor to your SUP d-rings and you won't be going anywhere!  

Retrospec Yogi Board - $509
Find inner peace while paddling. Weekender Yogi is your off-shore oasis – its wide, grippy deck provides extra space to stretch out and chill out, and its slip-resistant surface will keep you grounded as you float through your flow.

For the Kids

Retrospec Nano Board - $399
Weekender-Nano is our most compact, kid-friendly paddleboard exclusively designed for our smallest adventurers. Nano’s 8’ length, wider body, and rounded hull (8'x30"x4") make it easy to control and requires less exertion to paddle, especially for kids just getting a hang of the sport. 

Kids Stingray PFD - $55
Made from a durable and quick-drying Nylon fabric with added reflective piping, the Stingray will keep your child safe and visible. The strap adjustment system is incorporated into the PFD so there is no bunching or pulling while providing a secure custom fit.

For Any Paddler

Life Jacket - $79
Hitting the waves with your friends is a lot more fun when you're wearing this dynamic life jacket! This durable life jacket has mesh ventilation, shoulder adjustments, and adjustable side belts for a comfortable fit.

Dog Life Jacket- $45
The Rover Floater is designed to be a floatation aid for your best friend while on the water. The Rover Floater has a secure, not-restrictive fit, a convenient handle, and adjustable straps. Together, you and your dog can safely explore waterways.

Dry Bag - $19
Where do you put your cell phone, keys, and anything else you don’t want to get wet? In a dry bag of course! These handy bags will keep your belongings safe and dry.

Classic Safety Kit - $35
Every paddler needs to have a safety kit on board in case of emergency.

Bluetooth Speaker - $59
Because who doesn’t want to jam to their tunes while paddling along?

Cablz Zips for Sunglasses - $19
Never loose your sunglasses again while wearing Cablz! They clip onto your sunglasses to make sure they don't fall off and into the water. 

Atoll Towel - $39
These towels are made from cozy cotton terry bottom and a soft poly face with great colour vibrancy. An assortment of designs are available.

Atoll Hat - $42
Enjoy your paddle board in style and comfort! Some hats are too small, some are too large, and some can fall apart in weeks. Atoll took all these considerations, as well as years of production research, into mind when making this hat.

OVAP Shirt - $39
Our original t-shirts, tank tops and sweaters were created by our in-house designer. The quality of these tops is super soft and stretchy, made with comfort in mind! 

OVAP Gift Card - $ You decide! 
For the hard to buy for family member who would rather pick out an item themselves. Our gift cards never expire.

We hope you have a magical holiday season and we'll see you on the water in 2023!
