With a little touch of nostalgia, Salt Surf creates a classic swim trunk reminiscent of something from a mid-century surf film. Taking a cue from tradition, this short features some tried-and-true construction details such as the front lacing at waistband for adjustment and singular back pocket with snap closure. This piece is stabilized and made extra durable with double stitched seams throughout, and modernized through the contemporary silhouette – a slim, medium length cut, sitting a few inches from the knee.
Salt Surf is dedicated to supporting local industry by designing and producing their goods ethically in both New York and California where the company is based.
SALT SURF’s goal has always been to create something that people can connect with and see themselves in. It’s attempted to carve a niche in the market that is inclusive, open-minded and straightforward. Originally started in New York City in 2011, the aim was to deliver quality-made, progressive boards. At the time, SALT SURF was run entirely out of a single room that functioned as a studio, showroom, office and bedroom.
Since those early days, SALT SURF has grown out of that small studio, but still maintains it’s original vision. With boards made in California, and the founder himself a native Californian, SALT SURF is strongly influenced by New York and California cultures.
All of Salt Surf’s apparel, surfboards and skateboards are made in the USA.
“Quality made products are of the utmost importance to us. One of the main reasons that everything is made locally is so that we can keep a very close eye on every step of production on all of the products we make, ensuring it meets our quality standards. We also believe in people being treated well and paid well, so thats another reason why we make our stuff here… because we can guarantee that is the case.”
