ABOUT

Born over a decade ago from the needs of hardy British surfers, Finisterre designs functional and sustainable products for those that share a love of the sea. It started in 2003 in a flat above a surf shop with an innovative fleece that was designed to keep out chill winds and warm up cold bodies. Since these early days, driven by those who have jumped on board, supported by their customers and suppliers, the brand and product has widened beyond these original beginnings. The brand is committed to making informed decisions about our impact on the environment and is constantly trying to push boundaries to make the best product they can. In their eyes this is gear that will be with you the longest; and the longer you have it, the more attached you become to it.
