Apolis Activism: Katin USA

Apolis Activism recently collaborated on a pair of boardshorts with one of surf’s most iconic brands Katin USA. To commemorate the project, Adam Kolkman created a short documentary highlighting the heritage of the brand by shining a light on the manufacturing process at their factory in California.

The boardies are made from “crisp lightweight 5.5 oz chambray sourced in Spain, the waist is fastened with a 3 oz rope along a heritage belt extension, a classic three button fly, and a single side pocket with key loop”. A winning combination for sure.
