The guy already has a major cult following after starring in Spiderman, hosting SNL twice, and stoner favorite Pineapple Express, and now his core-score is through the roof by repping over 60 years of surfing street-cred with Katin.

Katin Sponsors Team USA Olympic Water Polo

When we say we have the world’s best boardshorts, we mean it. Katin is the sponsor and preferred active-wear of the USA Olympic Water Polo team.  Southern California being a breeding ground polo stars, the Huntington Beach based surf company was proud to support these 14 London-bound American Olympians all born and raised in California beach towns. Most of the boys grew up in the South LA Bay seeing lifeguards and waterman wearing these Katin trunks that have over 60 years for research and development.


(L to R) Team USA led by Tony Azevedo (middle). Chay Lapin, Janson Wigo, Shea Buckner and Andy Stevens train in Katin gear.

The boys have been training with Katin’s new line of performance sport-cut shorts and signature Team USA tops, all available at SWELL. A portion of the proceeds benefit the team in their campaign to bring a gold medal back home. Support team USA by rocking the Olympic themed tees and following our hometown heroes starting Sunday July 29.
