How long did it take you to come up with the trunks from the first idea to the first sample?
SJ & SW: It took about a year from when we designed to getting the first product back from the manufacturer.
What do they have that's different from Under Armour or Elephant Surf Trunks?
SJ & SW: Our briefs are more lightweight (no neoprene) and seamless. They are not designed to be compression shorts for field sports. They are meant to be submerged and worn in the water because they are made with hydrophobic fibers.
Do you plan to expand beyond the northeast in terms of retail stores that carry them?
SJ & SW: Yes, we are in talks with a big retail outlet in the Southeast. And we also have been getting many inquiries from states like Texas and Arkansas where the water activities are on lakes or rivers.
Are you currently sponsoring any athletes or do you plan to?
SJ & SW: For the moment, we are focusing on sponsoring events like paddle board races. But we may be open to sponsoring individuals in the future.
