Our Ouakam surf trunks are inspired by the Ouakam break, on the Southern side of the Ngor Peninsula in Dakar Senegal. The fabric design pays homage to the manjak handwoven strip cloth, traditionally woven by men in Senegal, that is sewn together into a whole cloth and worn as a wrap.
Styled in a two way stretch, cotton and spandex mix fabric, the Ouakam is designed to fade naturally and is instinctive and comfortable, whether you’re surfing, running, playing beach bats or just napping on the sand. The out-seam elastic waist adds to the comfort and ease of movement.
We triple stitch all the main seams and double stitch the hems, creating garments that are built to last and survive your surf adventures anywhere across the globe.
