Although summer in California means warm sand and sunny skies, it doesn’t always guarantee the luxury of warm ocean water. So when I am planning on spending all day in the ocean I find that it’s a good idea to have something strong enough to keep me warm in the ocean whether I am snorkeling, surfing, or just floating out to sea, but also light enough to allow me to float, dive, and jump to my feet seamlessly. I love this wetsuit as it is not as restricting or nearly as hot as a full wetsuit. It’s perfect for quickly slipping into as you head out to the water. And as fall quickly approaches this suit will stick around through the warm fall days and help make the transition into winter water temperatures a little bit smoother.

How’d you get your start in the Sanuk Footwear family?

I got thrown into the mix randomly by JK, he straight up invited me to check out the building and grab a pair of shoes. The next thing I know I am in a conference room talking about factories, footwear construction and materials. I had no resume, no portfolio just a computer with things I had been working on. Soooo caught off guard, but looks like it worked! JK is the man, I owe it all to him. (more…)
