Fancy Fins

The art and crafts of surfboards are a beautiful and diverse. 

The value of design can inspire, perform and cohesively play a role better than alternative options.  

When functional design meets the vision of an artists eye, the story continues to grow deep.  

Here are some fins for winners with Vissla's board short patterns laid in.  

Kwazulu Natal, Skeleton Coast and Petaluma Styles.  

Upcycled Coconut stretch Boardshorts. Innovative design and creative direction. I don't make board shorts but wake up daily with  similar demands of design and detail as I pursue excellence in the craft.

Where do you enjoy design? Love to hear about it.

Coconut Shorts stories

Upcycled. How why and where

Turns out that coconut husks blended with polyester are a perfect material to make boardshorts out of. Thanks to a process called Cocotex®, the overlooked “waste” is turned into an activated carbon fabric. And the properties of this fabric are everything you could ever wish for in a pair of trunks.

Thanks to the crew at Vissla these trunks feel amazing and its right to know we are considering the effects of production and preservation.
