The past and future of surf fashion

Surfing has enjoyed a rich and colourful history, and this is reflected in the fashion that surfers wear. From bellbottoms and tie-dye in the sixties to Day-Glo in the eighties, the surf fashion industry has appealed to surfers and non-surfers alike. Dressing like a surfer makes one feel free, rebellious, brave and connected to sunshine and sea. It’s not surprising that designers around the world sell this message through branded clothes designed to portray association with this aspirational pastime.

Surf fashion is, for the most part, all about functionality. Think comfortable tee-shirts and shorts that can be worn both in the water and on land, warm winter woollies and oversized smart-casual garments that are both hip and understated.

Over the years numerous surf brands have capitalised on this burgeoning subculture, bringing surf style to the masses. The big four brands dominated in the eighties and nineties and you could find kids wearing Rip Curl, Quiksilver and Billabong tee-shirts in locations from Ohio to Mumbai. Surfing had permeated the masses. There was even a Quiksilver Boardstore in Covent Garden, London.

From 2000 onward the big companies started to falter. The industry imploded and real surfers began to stray from the big brands. Real surfers didn’t want to wear brands that non-surfers were sporting to football matches. This is no exaggeration, Quiksilver even launched a range of boardshorts with rugby team logos. That was a death knell.

Who would have thought that one day Quiksilver and Billabong would merge? That Rip Curl would continue to fight the good fight, thanks to a few world champions who carried the brand. Gabriel Medina and Mick Fanning might’ve saved Rip Curl’s bacon.

Now real surfers are opting for brands like Hurley, Patagonia and Outerknown who offer better design, sustainability and quality. It’s a whole new world with more choice than ever before.

The future of surf fashion is bright with smart clothes, undoubtedly lighting the way. Imagine surf fashion that responds in real-time to the environment, that compresses sore muscles and vibrates when the wind and tide are just right.

Interestingly we now see non-surf brands encroaching on the market. Lululemon has released a line of surfer-targeted boardshorts and swimsuits. Nike dabbled in surfwear before leaving it to their surf brand Hurley. Even Louis Vuitton released a range of surf clothes in their 2018 summer collection.

As an industry, surfing has matured and will continue to do so into the future. Events like the annual Surf Expo showcase the future of surf tech and fashion. Alibaba links consumers directly to the manufacturers in China, for those brave enough to forego the big brand labels and try out more raw gear and apparel.

Garage industries are emerging, where handcrafted items are being snapped up by discerning surf fashionistas. Predictions for the surf industry in 2030:

– We will see one major surf brand, that appeals to anyone vaguely interested in surf lifestyle and culture. It may be called Rip Quik Bong or something like that.
– Niche designers will be 3D printing and sewing their gear and selling custom items from sites like eBay and Amazon.
– Smartwear will be booming and waterproof items manufactured by Nike, Lululemon and Adidas will be snapped up by techno-savvy surfers and repurposed for the surf environment.

Oh and tights. I mean yoga tights. Usually, the reserve of female yogi mums – these will be worn by every surfer, male and female, to protect them from the sun. Goodbye boardshorts, hello high-performance surf tights.

How To Be Careful With Money

Whether you’re a millionaire or you’re living paycheck to paycheck, it is important to be careful with your money. If you rush into purchases and don’t save, you might find yourself in a difficult situation when it comes to your finances, and that can be extremely stressful.

Here are some great tips on how to be more careful with money so that no matter how much you have, you will always have enough.

Save When You Can

Not everyone is able to save on a regular basis, although if you do regularly have a certain amount of money left at the end of the month, then you can comfortably set up a direct payment into a special, separate savings account.

Even if your pay packet changes from month to month, or you need to spend all of it sometimes, make sure that when there is something left, even if it is a handful of pennies, you put it to one side. The more often you do this, the more you will have in savings, plus it will become easier and easier to save – when you see your pile of savings building, you will be keen to add more to it.

If you are using a bank to save your money in, check out which one is going to give you the best deal. They are all in competition with one another, so they will all want your business. Look into the interest rates that they are offering, but also check out the other incentives. Some will offer cinema vouchers and others will throw in free insurance for your car or home. What is it you need?

Don’t forget to look into bank charges too as these will need to be taken into account and could off-set the positives when they are all added up.

Think Before You Buy

It is so easy to buy whatever you want thanks to the internet. A quick search and a few clicks, and you will have it – whatever it is – on its way to you. Sometimes it can even be delivered the same day. Without even knowing it, you can put yourself into a lot of debt, or at least spend money that could be saved or used elsewhere.

Make sure that before you buy anything, you think carefully about whether you really need it. You can search online and put the item into your cart, but wait before checking out. Leave it for as long as possible, and you might realize that you don’t need it after all. Whatever you would have spent on the item can then be put into your savings account, boosting it quickly.

You can also spend this time looking for a better deal. Rather than buying the first thing you see, you can search around for a better price or a deal that will save you money. Therefore, if you still need to buy something, you can buy it at the best price possible.


Making a budget each month might not sound like a lot of fun, but it is necessary. You will need it to show all of your expected income and all of your outgoings. This way you know what is left over, and therefore what you can spend on fun things and treats.

Sometimes there won’t be anything left over, and if that is the case don’t force the point. The figures don’t lie and should be taken into consideration no matter what else is going on. If there is something you want to do but your budget says it can’t be done, look at where you can save money elsewhere.

Don’t Be Afraid To Borrow

Sometimes borrowing money is the best way to save money, even if it sounds strange to say so. If you are paying out a lot in debt management each month and it is getting difficult to deal with, you can think about getting a loan to consolidate those debts into one monthly repayment. This can often by a lower amount than when you add everything up that you were paying, so you will be saving money and getting your finances in order.

Don’t be afraid to borrow in emergencies either. There is no point in struggling or even making yourself sick if you need something and you are able to get a buy now pay later loan. It is crucial that you add this to your budget so that you know that you can pay back the loan without difficulty.

Shop With A List

When you go shopping, do you take a list with you? Or do you walk around the grocery store picking up whatever looks enticing? If it is the latter, then you will be spending more money than you should be. You’ll be buying things that you don’t really need and then often throwing them into the trash because you didn’t have a chance to use them.

It is far better to write a list and then make sure you stick to that list when you are shopping. That way you will buy what you need and make the most of what you have. Take time to look for special deals on the items that you usually buy as well, such as buy one get one free. Then you can save even more money.

Have A Goal

Saving money is good, and it is something that we should all do, but saving without a goal to work towards might be more difficult. It will always be tempting to dip into your savings if there is nothing specific to be saving up for.

What is it that you really want but can’t afford right now? It might be a vacation, or money to spend on a vacation. It could be a new outfit, or a new car. It might be a down payment for a house, or perhaps enough for a meal in a fancy restaurant. Whatever it is, knowing that you have the funds growing in your account and you are getting closer every day to being able to claim your prize will be a great incentive to be more careful with your money.

How to Feel Better in the Summer And Be More Fashionable

It’s already one of the last days of May and the month of June is just around the corner. Before we even know it we will be bathing in the sea or enjoying our gardens. But before this happens it might be a good idea to take some steps to prepare for the upcoming season even if it means that you will have to spend some time at home instead of outdoors. Here are some ideas what to do to be prepared for this season better than ever before:

1. Go around your house and carefully look at your summer outfits. If they are still in your loft, it now might be the right time to bring them down because there are some really hot days ahead of us (you can know it when you check the weather forecast). Try to remember where you have hidden all the items last year and dig them out. If you are unsure what you did with them , your family members might be of great help here, especially if this is their clothing you are looking for. It might also take a while to refresh your old clothing by washing it and dying it in the sun so that it is ready to be worn and enjoyed by you this season.

2. If you feel like you could use some new summer clothes consider buying some maya dresses. Nothing makes a woman happier than being able to buy one of the lavish alice dresses that are so enjoyable and easy to wear during summer months. Also, if this is what you would like to do, you can look at some flounce london dresses to complete your wardrobe and make it appear more up to standard. To be honest, you cannot really go wrong with such dresses as they never go out of style. The best thing is that you can order them online and then check how you look in them. You might want to invite a friend over to your house after you receive them so that she can offer you some advice as to what suits you and what could use some improvement.
