No trip to California is complete without a visit to the Pacific Ocean–be it peaceful Zuma Beach in Southern California, a breathtaking roadtrip along Highway 1, or a perfect vista overlooking the splendor of Carmel up north. All along the stunning West Coast, surfers are working those waves, living in the moment of exhilarating opportunity. With surfing, as in life, timing is everything.

The Surfer epitomizes West Coast cool. Inspired by the legendary Dogtown skateboarders of Venice Beach circa 1976, the unisex shirt offers laid-back easy-to-wear style. Knit from Silken Straw, with the fiber held double throughout, the piece is worked in a satisfying knit from sleeve to sleeve. This technique makes possible the relaxing yet dynamic experience of several colors unfolding in an uncomplicated way, and at the same time, gives the flattering color flash made possible only by long, uninterrupted lines of
vertical color.
