Surf Shorts with a Social Mission

Posted on April 06, 2014 by Nancy Opitz

Kadu boardshorts featured in the May/June issue of DestinAsian magazine.


Surf legend Terry Simms spends most of the year riding rip curls from Morocco to South Africa, the Maldives, Kauai, and California. Chasing the perfect wave, he says, was easier than finding durable board shorts that moved with him in the water. Between surf breaks on Sumba in the Flores sea, Simms found inspiration for Kadu (US$225) in the Indonesian island’s ikat textiles. Five years of fabric and fit testing followed. While the well-cut outcome, a collection of seven printed shorts made of lightweight, quick-drying material, is sewn to last, Simms is also psyched that profits will help fund clean-water projects “that help my Sumbanese friends, who live on one of the Archipelago’s most impoverished islands.” –Cynthia Rosenfeld{%2210203594510248727%22%3A211802939030328}&action_typ
