What is it that makes surf fashion so damn cool?

Since surfing’s invention way back when, the image of surfing has been a cool, often sought after one. The golden skin, blonde highlights in the hair, flip-flops, shorts and Surf T-shirts. We all wish we could have the same look because really we all want the lifestyle! Living on the beach, surfing the best waves you can and not really having any worries in the world. That’s we imagine when we think of a surfer and that chilled out relaxed lifestyle is what feeds into the surf fashion we buy.

The heritage of surfing, that chilled out, no worries attitude. Minimalism swamped the early surfing image, all you needed was a board and some shorts the rest would just ‘work out’.

Surfing is one of the most eco friendly sports on the planet. Once you have a board you are done with planetary damage and with boards able to be built out of wood even the manufacturing doesn’t have to be planet affecting. With the global environment as it is today, eco-friendly lifestyles are becoming the ‘in’ fashion. Surfing has this dialed and because surfers are so reliant on the ocean there are many surf companies set up to protect our delicate eco-system. This gives surfing a new cool and fresh style, making surfing cool both in heritage and in modern development.
