In case getting a free test drive of some killer new boards, new FCS fins, and the new Rip Curl wetsuit isn’t enough, South Coast added in some Taylor Knox and Tom Curren to show you up in the water. Still not convinced? Free Rip Curl swag. Knew that’d get ya. The only thing you have to worry about is not peeing in the demo suit. But c’mon, you can’t always have your cake and eat it too.

Able to stop ice cream trucks with a single lift of a pinky tow. Always colors in the lines, and only needs to look one way before crossing the street. Itâ€™s the new crop of youth-inspired art tees from Wellen. Ocean-driven designs that so sick, looking sweet is like taking candy from a baby (Swell does not advise taking candy from strangers- stranger danger). Check out the new slew of Wellen tees at Swell.
Now that weâ€™ve captured your attention (with a scantily clad, yet sensibly dressed for the elements lady) we want to style you out with something that will shift some attention to you. This month Maxim caught on to two eye-catching up-and-coming brands: Ambission (Ambsn) and the Ryde. Both brands offer up some killer graphic tees that are far from the norm. According to Maximâ€™s cheesey center, â€świth the right stuff, you can make this summer an endless one.â€ť Maxim said it, so it must be true.Â
