From the beginning Cleanline has had deep roots in Northwest culture and surf. We have been drinking micro brews and wearing flannel as long as anyone, and when designing our private label gear we try and get graphics Lewis and Clark would be stoked to rock. All this beer and rain creates a wonderful environment for the cultivation of art. We are truly lucky to have so many talented people walk through our lives who share our passion. Our latest Cleanline original pieces come from tattoo artist out of Astoria, Oregon. Aaron Toledo, owner and artist at Keepsake Tattoo has been tattooing in the northwest since 2002 and is an avid sailor and surfer. His passion for the sea and the northwest bleeds into his art with beauty and soul. Rocky coast lines and crashing waves surrounded by majestic fir trees are just a few things you can expect to see in the work Aaron has done for us. Get your piece of the Northwest today, with our Cleanline Owl Longboard or any of our Cleanline Eagle Apparel by Aaron.
Patagonia has just announced their new Big Wave Self-Inflation Vest. A vest designed specifically for surfing the biggest waves on the planet. Input from big wave surfer Kohl Christensen and a team of researchers at Patagonia are ensuring this is the best big wave vest out there. Check out the video below. Currently there isn’t any word on when these will be available for sale, but we should have them as soon as they are over at our Patagonia Wetsuits page.

Check out this video…not sure if this is Hurricane Sandy or not, but nonetheless the surf is rad.
JS Surfboards are incredibly solid looking boards, not just visually, but the shapes are great if you’re looking for a performance shortboard. Originally out of Australia, the company founded by professional surfer Jason Stephenson has been doing good things in the surf world for years, and we’re stoked to be ramping up our selection of their surfboards. Expect more from JS Surfboards in the near future!
Meet the man behind the shapes. Check out this video from Transworld Surf. The video is from last year, but it’s probably the best JS interview out there.
