Surf Sense was established in 2016 by Shelly Rankin, with the idea of bringing bespoke swimwear to all water lovers.   Known for simple designs and luxurious fabrics, her team custom design suits for diving, paddling, snorkeling, surfing, SUPing and skiing, to name just a few.

Surf Sense suits are designed to keep you protected from the sun with a `UPF 50+’ factor, which will safeguard your skin from the harmful effects of the sun and encourages non-use of sun screens that are harmful to our oceans, rivers and reefs.   

Every garment we make impacts the environment and we take responsibility for doing everything we can to minimize, control and reduce those impacts.

Surf Sense has taken another step forward by producing suits from fabric that is made from recycled plastic bottles, known as Repreve.   Approximately 15 bottles regenerated into the yarn create one suit.
