ION is a brand run by passionate people, whose big love have always been water-sports. Launched back in 2004, ION focused on wetsuits & neoprene products for the international windsurf, kite-surf, surf, SUP and wake-board scene. The product range also includes accessories, harnesses, travel-gear and an apparel collection.
ION’s unique combination of high quality products wrapped in a progressive style and design found fans all over the world – becoming the global market leader for wetsuits and harnesses in the wind- and kite-surf world.

Ali Conway started Strange Bikinis because she was tired of the struggle. Living in Los Angeles, California, it was impossible to avoid the dichotomy of swimwear: sick designs or high quality? And at what price? That’s when she realized that we shouldn’t have to choose. Why not have it all? She began small, creating custom pieces for her friends, who flaunted them with the swag that only comes from ultimate confidence. So maybe it was this empowering glow that her swimwear gave people, or maybe it was simply the combination of quality and uniqueness, but nonetheless a huge demand for Strange Bikinis was born. Throughout the years, Ali’s never lost touch with her sole purpose for starting the line in the first place: the women behind it. Every Stranger out there adventuring the world, hand-standing in her studio and dancing at festivals inspires the next dreamy bikini. The connection that Ali has with each one of her customers is exactly what drives her.
Making women feel their best and looking their strangest, Ali Conway: killin’ the bikini game.
These days a soft surfboard is an essential part of any quiver, especially for Summer in Australia! Long gone is the stigma that only kooks or beginners ride them, so let’s check out some of the reasons why we think it worth investing in one.
To put it basically, the main reason we recommend getting a softboard is because it will make you go surfing more and catch more waves!
If you’re a beginner, they generally have a bit more volume making them paddle fast and extremely stable once your up. At this point , the more waves you catch the quicker you will improve!
If you’re an experienced surfer, you can surf between the flags (often where the best waves are in metro areas!).It’ll also get you in the water when you normally wouldn’t bother!
Overall, we also feel that riding a softboard is fun. You wont take yourself too seriously, or have a bad surf.
Closest feel to surfing outside the water.
