By domestically manufacturing goods, Carve Designs has helped to support the US economy, create US jobs and minimize the company’s carbon footprint.
Beacon One Piece Women’s Swimsuit:
Ringing in at only $76, the Beacon One Piece from Carve Designs is a classically styled one piece suit with a double strap construction and a flattering low back cut.
50+ UPF keeps your skin protected from the sun, and a built-in shelf bra for support for long days on the beach. Its 4-way stretch fabric allows you to move freely during activities like surf or SUP, so that you’re comfortable no matter what activity you decide to enjoy.
And like we stated before the Beacon One Piece from Carve Designs is proudly made in the US of A.
Founded in 1952, Jack O’Neill opened his first Surf Shop in a garage located across the Great Highway. First starting out he shaped a few balsa surfboards and offered accessories like Paraffin wax and some vests that he created by patching together Neoprene.
Low and behold, the vests started taking off – this is when Jack O’Neill decided to make a name for himself in the wetsuit business. His friends joked about what he planned to do after the small number of surfers living in the area already bought them.
Jacks Surf Shop became a local gathering spot, and the number of surfers in the area began to grow. O’Neill brought in surfer/shapers like Phil Edwards to produce boards, and his wetsuit sales began to skyrocket.
By 1980 O’Neill’s Surf Shop had become a successful international company that had taken the wetsuit market by storm and is one of the leaders in beach lifestyle sportswear in the US, Japan and Europe. In 1985 Jack’s son Pat took over the position of CEO, allowing Jack to surf, sail and work on a variety of projects. Like saving the Great White Shark from extinction and developing the O’Neill Sea Odyssey program; a free program that teaches kids about the microbiology of the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary.
Hyperfreak Hydro Men’s Board Shorts:
The Hyperfreak Hydro Mens Board Shorts aren’t just another board short, they are the best board short. These high performance trunks are made with 170% stretch. The ultimate in 4-way stretch for unrestricted mobility and performance in the surf.
They also feature O’Neill’s Hyperdry Plus plasma treatment that offers a super-quick dry time and a lightweight feel. Their welded construction means no chafing. And the Laser Cut bottom hem reduces restriction for maximum turn extension, keeping you on your board longer.
There you have it guys, two great swimsuits to get you out on the water, or in the hot tub this spring!
