Story

It’s that pendulum swing that did it; twinnys are just different animals out in the water.

When I first laid eyes on G’s new twinny lying there on the grass I knew the wall had fallen. It was a Steve Lis style keel-finned fish shaped by Dain Thomas of Sea Surfboards (Byron Bay). It took a few weeks to save up the cash before I could throw down the measly $600 for my own custom, forking out a little more for the volan. Within a few years these master-crafts were going for $1200 and soon after the Sea dried up. Those that know, know and lament the passing.

Laid over on a rail, the two big keel fins cut great arcing swathes through the wave face at speed. These great arcs drawn out at speed made me feel like I was riding the board shape’s namesake. No, hang on, not riding something like a fish… it was a fish – alive and writhing. As my relationship developed with the this creature I began to understand that it would be best to defer to experience – the fish knows, just go with it.

 

 

 

Materials

A favourite t-shirt should be so comfy you feel like you’re not wearing it. It should last. The design speaks to you reminding you of a time, place, someone special - or you just dig it. As a traditional screen printed tee you know it just won’t die.

Our fabric has a soft, luxurious feel that comes from using high-quality, ring-spun combed cotton - 100% organic cotton. The garment is also Fairwear certified but technically we’re not certified to advertise that fact - you’ll see it on the care label. It feels good to know that folks down the supply chain are getting a fair go.

We worked hard to source high-quality, ethical shirt stock. They're not just for wearing once for that gig on this Saturday. You'll want to hang onto this shirt.

Care Instructions

Look after your shirt and you'll get years of wear out of it. How you wash has a big impact on a t-shirt's lifespan so to prolong its life, follow these recommendations:

  • Turn inside out before washing
  • Wash similar items together
  • Always use cold water
  • Avoid bleach or strong detergents
  • Line dry in the shade - don't tumble dry
