Today’s beachwear focuses on both fashion and function. From boardshorts and bikinis to tanks and Ts, you can find the new looks for summer at Quiksilver, Vans and Volcom.




These popular action sportswear brands – and Surfrider Foundation sponsors – are ahead of the trends and lead the way in eco-friendly materials and manufacturing. SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel have seen the creative energy at these companies and their commitment to “reduce, reuse, and recycle.”
