We took the Island inland to the Gauteng Getaway Show!
Getaway Magazine gave out a pair of Island Style Flip Flops to every subscriber at the show, which truly put the Island Style vibe into full swing!
Not only did our models cause a stir on the ramp, but also attracted many a pair of eyes on the volleyball court - what a jol!
You can just about trace the history of surfing by looking at the evolution of surfboard design. The early Hawaiian boards were solid redwood planks carved out of Tree trunks. They were big, heavy and dictated the way waves were ridden. Generally straight to the beach or, at best, across the line of the wave.
SUP stands for “Stand Up Paddle” Boarding, an off-shoot of surfing, originating in Hawaii.
And it’s rad, bro. If you’re already in the know, and want some SUP accessories, look no further than Island Style.
We’ve got, long-lasting, locally-made, high quality Stand Up Paddle Boarding Gear and accessories!
Island Style is bringing the aloha spirit to Jozi’s Getaway Show from 29-30 August 2015! Taking place at the Ticketpro Dome, we will be showcasing our beachwear and equipment as well as our new online store.
Island Style's association and sponsorship of the world's best boardriders continues to stamp authenticity on the brand. Island Style team riders are a valued and integral part of the Island Style family.

Double Swivel vs Single Swivel
Swivels are the "joints" of your leash. They allow your leash cord to pivot or make complete rotations around the joint. Sitting between your cuff and rail saver, a swivel helps to avoid getting your leash tangled around your legs when you're nailing that perfect wave. Double or single swivel, the choice is yours.
World Junior Champs
VISSLA International Surfing Association World Junior Surfing Championship is scheduled for September 17-25 in São Miguel, Azores Islands, Portugal.
The VISSLA ISA WJSC showcases the best young surfers from around the world.
Best locally made surf grips.
Double Swivel vs No Swivel
Swivels are the "joints" of your leash. They allow your bodyboard leash cord to pivot or make complete rotations around the joint. Sitting between your cord and lug, a swivel helps to avoid getting your leash tangled as you try to nail that perfect wave. It's up to you whether you go with a double swivel leash or no swivel at all.
Viva la Summer!
We’re taking it off...
Getting tubed or barreled is the most spiritual, energising and satisfying feeling a bodyboarder can get.
To quote Shaun Tomson, “Once in the tube, it is as if time stands still”. All life's worries melt away, everything becomes clear and you feel at one with the heartbeat of nature. You’re in nature… you’re riding nature.

What stoking news! Our Island Style team rider, Steezy Steve Sawyer, the new 2016 SA Longboard Open Champ, has got another huge title to add to his name. Steezy just took the win at the RVCA JBU Super Trials, 12 June 2016. What a cracker year for Sawyer, couldn’t be more proud of you, bru.
Silly season is over, now you can share the stoke about this awesome beach clean up initiative.
Seeing street children on our roads is something all of us are familiar with. It’s hurts the vibe of surfer and non-surfer souls across our beautiful country and the world. So, when a group of street children, who have lived life on Durban’s harsh streets, from childhood, choose to leave street life to become surfers, the eyes, ears and hearts of Durban’s surf industry perk up to be a part of this stoking story.
The Big Wave Surf Awards took place on Saturday, 23 April and saw history being made.
