Story

There’s a battler up in the back streets of Sunshine Beach in Queensland who has a backyard menagerie of boards like you wouldn’t believe. I think I’d found him through an ad in the local paper. A mate had been looking for a cheap board to get started on and I’d probably started ranting about super thick single-fins with no rocker, vowing that’d I’d find him one for bugger-all. I was in la-la land when I walked down the side of the old salt’s unit and seen the first rack of cobwebbed and dust-caked hunks of foam. They all looked tired – retired on some extended hiatus from the sea for a decade or two or more. Dinged up, onioned, crumbling and cracked single-fins, twinnys, bonzers, two-and-one set-ups, stubbies, mid-lengths and logs all a-jumble back there.

The bloke looked like his pets but while they rested silently against each other he beamed and nattered excitedly about the old days when his belly wasn’t so big and he was out there every day,

“…back then it was different, ay, less people, ay. Loads less houses, more trees. Yeeeah mate, it was good back then, ay.”

He’d run his thumb down the rail of one and then another. You could feel there was some communion with one or two here and there. A lot he must have accumulated from heads here and there over the years. I’d felt my eye drawn to one down the back against the wooden fence under an early nineties McTavish performance log. It looked about seven foot, at least three inches thick, single-fin, nondescript and the burnt-out yolky yellow of a board laid-up for years, cooking in the sun.

“Ahh,” he sighed, “Yeah, there she is. Nah, that one’s not for sale.”

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
