Skimboard from Louis Vuitton
Give a classic beach activity a sleek, designer look with Louis Vuitton’s eye-catching skim board. Featuring prominent LV Initials against a wood background on one side (designed to look like they have been dipped into a wave) and an oversized Monogram accentuated by a vibrant gradient of pastels (reminiscent of the Spring-Summer 2022 collection) on the other, this skim-board will make beach days look chicer than ever before.

Aqua Marina Beast Paddle Board from Burnsco
Is there a better way to start a summer morning than with a calming, paddle board across the ocean? We don’t think so. Which is why we have included the inflatable Aqua Marina Beast Paddle Board on this list. A versatile, all-round stand-up paddle board, designed to suit all water conditions, the Aqua Marina Beach is extra rigid while remaining light, and is perfect for summertime exploring thanks to the way it offers easy stroke power, control and balance. There is also an included carry bag that has enough space for a board, pump, and paddle.

Destined to give pool and beach days a decidedly decadent look, Versace’s Crete de Fleur Inflatable Float is the perfect present for someone who loves being a little bit extra. Featuring the brand’s recognisably detailed motif and iconic black and yellow palette, this floatie is far from ordinary.

Beach Towel from Asuwere
A good beach or pool towel is essential for any successful day spent by the water, and Asuwere’s iteration is one of the best we’ve seen.
