Walking down all the rows and columns of the Surf Expo Lifestyle section was daunting. There was so much to see and I put together a recap of the best of the best lifestyle brands Adam and I met with a couple weeks ago.
Recycled Canadian Maple Skateboard on your face? Proof Eyewear’s making that a “thing” in the eyewear industry. The frames on the sunglasses are made from recyclyed Canadian Maple Skateboards, so you can protect your eyes from the sun and help out the environment.

After a solid launch of the Outcross shoes, Chaco’s introducing the Outcross Evo collection in early 2015. There’s going to be 3 different versions of the Outcross Evo for men (Outcross Evo 3 is pictured), 4 for women, and a smattering of colors for kids. The different versions of the Outcross Evo combines breathable mesh with webbing to give you different options of ventilation across all the styles, a comfortable microfoam layer atop the polyurethane (PU) LUVSEAT (what Chaco’s known for), and a non-marking EcoTread outsole.
Chaco will release the Outcross Evo 2015 and they’ll start from $55 for kids styles and from $100 for adult styles
For as long as I can remeber the slogan for Sanuk has been something to the extent of–This is a Sandal, Not a Shoe. A new line of footwear that Sanuk’s introducing is their shoe collection and now Sanuk’s #neveruncomfortable in any of their footwear. I think the new shoe styles are pretty rad.
Check out the line of #neveruncomfortable Sanuk Shoes from $55
Sea Crystal Series
Summer seems to never end here in Florida and Hobie Polarized is keeping faces cool with their Sea Crystal Series of polarized sunglasses. Hobie Polarized took their Dogpatch, Woody, and (my favorite) The Wedge styles and gave their frames a new look with a mix of silver and crystal blue. You’re going to think it’s cool outside as you look through these ice blue lenses.
Checkout the Sea Crystal Series from $89.99
Pockets are just part of the everyday routine with Team Phun and they’re just getting better. The folks behind Team Phun are taking pocket designs to a whole new level of phun with their new line of pocket inspired tees, tanks, polos, and button downs. You’re going to have to keep your eyes peeled for the new stuff coming out real soon.
Check out the current Team Phun pocket designs from $17.99
I wouldn’t recommend drinking from this sandal, but I would recommend getting it if you want a sandal loaded with comfort. The folks at Freewaters designed the Tall Boy to be a thicker sandal to provide more cushion comfort to the person wearing it with sleek lines to give it a thinner look.
Freewaters will release the Tall Boy on January 15 from $48
