Upcycling transforms waste into desirable products. Our boardshorts are made from Cocotex® yarn, which is created by recycling coconut husks. This yarn is odor-resistant and dries quickly. It is blended with Repreve® recycled polyester yarns to produce top-performing boardshorts that are comfortable and eco-friendly.

Traditionally, water-repellent fabrics were treated with harmful chemicals called PFCs and Fluorocarbons to keep them from becoming saturated. However, these chemicals can have negative effects on the environment and wildlife. In order to reduce our impact and safeguard the ocean, we have transitioned to using 100% PFC and Fluorocarbon-free DWR water-repellent coating for our boardshorts. Here's to a cleaner and healthier future
