Born in the Laguna reefbreaks, TRKY is the freshest cuts to ever fly onto SWELL’s shelves. It’s inspired by the groovy gandu way of life in the rootsy little Laguna Beach village, where being called a Turkey is a compliment. Co-founder Stephen “Sli-Dawg” Chew is a Tavarua boatman, travel writer, winemaker, artist, and voted Best Surf Coach in Orange County.
Their psychedelic designs aren’t only the contest art for the oldest surf contest in the world, but the favorite feathered threads of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. Taylor grew up in Laguna Beach with the TRKY crew, and accepted his last 7 Grammys sporting his TRKY tees. The hometown hero also wore em during his SNL performance with Mick Jagger and rocks out regularly at free concerts around Laguna-town. Click here to watch Foo’s historic acceptance speech.
