The brand began in 1960 in San Diego, California, USA when surfer, Duke Boyd, and a seamstress, Doris Boeck, put together a pair of tough nylon shorts designed exclusively for surfing.
Their creation now known as board shorts was stitched with little golden feet in homage to surfing's greatest skill - hanging one's toes off the front of the board.
This launched the first all-original surfing apparel brand
Originated from California in 1960, HANG TEN became an instant success among surfers with the creation of the first-ever board shorts capable of withstanding the rigors of surfing.
The Brand's California has a global following among free-spirited consumers and sports lovers.
HANG TEN is committed to providing affordable products for everyone to love.
