Why are we talking about surfwear on the brink of winter? Well, after 50+ years in the business, one of the most respected surfwear brands is being reintroduced to the world completely refreshed and ready for 2015. 


The Santa Ana-based company has long been a favorite of anyone in the last half century who's spent a fair amount of time on the sand in Southern California. Believe it or not, the company spent all that time without a proper marketing and design team. 


Today Birdwell is putting itself into the caring hands of a group of local SoCal surfers and Birdwell fans who are continuing the brand's legacy with new designs and those same classic looks with updated fits. The group is keeping the original factory and bringing up to modern spec and Birdwell's site is getting a much needed update. So if your holiday plans are taking you somewhere tropical definitely give Birdwell a look and keep it bookmarked so you can stock up once summer comes around.
