We are a new company entering the surfing industry. We are looking to follow the steps of Quicksilver, Billabong, O'Neill amongst others. This line will also incorporate some of the cultural richness from Panama in Central America. We are born in the Tropics to be sold Globally! We want to be contemporary with an ethnic touch!
Our main audience are young kids and adults. Principally males between 13-25 years old. These are surfers, skaters and cool kids that like the lifestyle even if they do not practice either of the sports.
Be CREATIVE. No restrictions. Present your designs on a lifelike t-shirt. NO 80's retro styles. No "Stock Photo" designs. You can use cultural items related to Panama. I would suggest use as accents only. Research the following websites For Surfing inspiration go to:
