As eco-minded entrepreneurs we feel the there is a better way to make clothing. Clothing made without herbicides, pesticides, GMO’s, or harmful dyes, without toxic run off from cotton fields polluting our surf, ruining our beaches, and destroying our fragile coastal eco-systems. Clothing a surfer, stand up paddler, freediver, spearfisherman or other water lover can wear proudly.
