So, Offshore Surfwear how did you come up with the concept for the brand, what are your inspirations and how did it get started?
Well, it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while. I wanted to make something myself and hopefully watch it grow. One night I thought screw it and got it started. So i decided on the word ‘offshore’ because who doesn’t love a bit of offshore wind? People get stoked when they hear it's offshore , so I decided on that as its super positive! So ‘offshore’ is based on the ocean, good times and good people. I guess for inspirations, the people behind Deus Ex Machina and Passenger. Such sick brands with good ethos.
You're not wrong there, every surfer wants to hear those words! So what is your brand' ethos? I’ve noticed you are using organic materials in some of your clothing. Is this the direction you are hoping to take the brand?
Yeah! So our tote bags are made with 100% organic cotton! Our newest embroidered tees are 100% cotton. With time on my side, I want to grow towards being able to use salvaged ocean material to create products. Pretty soon I will be stocking some reusable metal water bottles to help people reduce their plastic usage. So our brand ethos is avoid single use plastic where possible, which is why we have tote bags and the new bottles coming soon. We are aware of the state of the planet and believe everyone can do their bit in protecting the environment.
