Surf leggings … never heard of it before? It’s the latest trend coming over from America!They’re designed as a protection against nasty sun burns, but are functional on way more levels! No need to worry about losing your pants, without having to wear a steamy hot wetsuit when the sun is out, and quickly to pull on and off instead of monkey about with a whole suit. But actually.. you might as well just keep them on all day.
Surf leggings are super comfy and look great. Besides, they’re perfect for surfing, but are excellent for yoga (no, they’re not too slippery for balancing poses) or running as well! And with an eye on convenience, the leggings contain a stash pocket for your key.The surf leggings in our collection are designed by Sensi Graves and Danielle Clayton, founder of Salt Gypsy. Three seasons of surf guiding in the Maldives in combination with two years being a Sales Rep Road Warrior for Billabong New Zealand, lead her to design the Salt Gypsy – Style in the Lineup collection. Since working and surfing under the tropical sun is extremely taxing on our skin, Danielly ended up designing a couple pairs of surf leggings to protect her pins while ‘hard at work’ on a surfari boat. Not content with the Grandma-esque or Olympic athlete styles that were on offer at the time, Salt Gypsy wanted to bring more individuality into the lineup, a reflection of our own personality and surf style rather than product of the mass-produced-machine. As she says herself: ‘We aim to pull into barrels, not worry about our pants pulling down’. And let’s face it: no-one looks good with Melanoma.
