Summer Skin Essentials

Don’t worry, we’ve got a few hot tips for giving our skin the extra love it needs to stay stoked during our fav time of year.

Say Hello to Andy Davis

Working with Andy to bring Sun Bum Skin Care to life has been an incredible experience and a total dream come true for us. We caught up with him in his in-house studio at our HQ in Encinitas to hear a bit more about him and the story behind his designs.

Here’s what we know; we love the beach, we love the sun, and we try to take extra good care of our skin. Those are some of our simple truths. And we like keepin’ things simple.

The Dad Hat X Summer McKeen

We were stoked to collab with Summer McKeen on The Dad Hat—made to keep our face in the shade and our hair in check, whether we’re cruising around town or hanging out after sunset with our crew.

Meet Daniella Perkins

Since Daniella helped us make this Limited Edition T-Shirt Hair Towel, we figured it was only right to have her be the first to take it for a spin around the block, literally.

Holiday Gift Guide

Our Thanksgiving Day Parade

We heard a rumor that the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade might be cancelled this year. So, we decided it would be kinda cool to put on our very own holiday production here at the office.

Meet Textured Waves

We were beyond stoked to get the chance to catch up with the amazing women of Textured Waves the other day. It was an honor to learn more about their roots, both as friends and as leaders within the ocean community, and to hear about some of the things keeping them inspired both in and out of the water.
