Continuing to pay homage to Katin's classic surf history, Katin and our Australian retailer SurfStitch wanted to create a collaborative collection modeled directly after the original surf trunk designs and the iconic 1960’s Katin "K-Man” graphic.

The classic Katin “K-Man” was originally drawn by a young, local surfer who used to hang out at the Kanvas by Katin shop in the 60s and 70s. The design became an instant favorite and Katin started using the graphic for their sewn-on surf trunk patches and t-shirts. 


For this collection, we wanted to re-create that same legendary “K-Man” design atop contemporary clothing silhouettes in company with fresh cuts and new patterns. 

Watch the collection come to life in our official video above, and shop this limited-edition collection of custom surf trunks, graphic tees, dad hats and more, available online now.
