After all, Surf-Fur started while Cynthia was out surfing. She felt there was a need for warming products that were made specifically with the waterman in mind. Sur-Fur’s mission was to come up with something durable enough to, “get beat on, wet, salty and sandy and still clean up nice and easy.” Cynthia and her husband spent several years finding the perfect fabric, making prototypes and finding a factory. In 2007, they received their first shipment of Waterparkas and thus, Sur-Fur was born! Tune in to here more of their amazing story.
