#TBT: The Original Surf Trunk

#TBT: The Original Surf Trunk


For this week's Katin throwback, we want to share a little slice of history. The original Katin surf trunk design patterns from the late 1950s, which are still used to construct our surf trunks today.

Walter Katin designed these original patterns himself, and we continue to pay homage to the Katin legacy through our high-quality and durable surf trunks.

Today, Sato Hughes, the Katin seamstress since 1961, still uses these original patterns to custom make trunks for folks as well.

So rad Karl! Love it.

I still have a pair of these trunks from the early 70’s! Very faded, and of course, a tad shorter than today’s styles, but they still work!
