Like most parkas, the Surf-Fur is purpose-built: you wear it on the beach before you paddle out to stay warm and dry; you wear it over your wet clothes during race intervals to keep the chilly wind from stealing your body heat; and you wear it after the day’s paddle to re-warm your core.


But here’s what makes the Surf-Fur Waterparka special; Its double-sided fleece material is both windproof and waterproof, yet breathable. Made from 100-percent polyester, the inner and outer layers are bonded together by a membrane which allows vapor to pass through, but not water molecules. The fleece is also hydrophobic, holding less than one percent of its weight in water. The result is a soft, comfy surface on both sides. You’ll really appreciate this at the end of the day when the inside of the parka is damp from being worn over your wet clothes. Simply turn the jacket inside out and, once again, you have a dry parka.


The Surf-Fur Parka offers an internal cell phone pocket plus a pair of deep hip cargo pockets that are also special; Inner through-pockets allow your hands to get inside and pull clothing up or down when you’re changing in or out of your wetsuit or anything else that gets wet. That’s right—no more dropped towels and embarrassing flashes. That alone should make this waterparka a keeper.


The soft lining feels great next to your skin and the internal collar, combined with the attached hood, really keeps the wind out. The parka uses a system of snaps instead of a zipper as a closure, and the long hem drops below the knees, which enables watermen to quickly change from clothes to wetsuit and back again without any wardrobe malfunctions.


At the end of the day, after easily slipping back into street clothes under the Surf-Fur without creating a scene, reverse the waterparka to the dry side, flip up the hood, bury your hands in the warm pockets and settle in for the ride home in comfort. Great gift idea any time of the year!
