Meet The Maker: Laure of Lore Of The Sea.

Last month Seafoam welcomed a new label to the line-up, Lore Of The Sea. A small, woman-powered surf-wear label that combines the elegance of French/Basque coastal roots with Australian playfulness. Resulting in practical pieces that will keep you protected from the sun, while you enjoy what the ocean has to offer. As always we love to know who is really behind these stunning collections. Let us introduce you to Laure, the founder and designer of Lore Of The Sea...   First of all, could you tell us a little more about yourself and where you're from? My name is Laure I’m from the Basque Country (more specifically from a little fishermen town called St Jean de Luz). About 10 years ago...

Meet The Maker: Monique Rotteveel

  You might have spotted it already, the new La Selva Collection by Monique Rotteveel has landed! So, we thought it would be a perfect time to share a little more about the lady behind the label with you. Monique was one of the first designers on Seafoam when we launched back in 2015 and has been praised and loved by you for her high quality pieces and amazing prints. Read all about her inspiration and hard work below.   Hi Monique, first of all, being from the Netherlands originally, how did you get into surfing?

Meet the Maker: Sensi Graves

Even before Seafoam was launched, Sensi Graves Bikinis was high on the brands-wishlist. I had tried and tested her bikinis and surfsuit while living and working in French Polynesia and knew this was a brand that had to be part of Seafoam. Although Sensi has made her name mainly in the kiteboarding community, the fact that most of her pieces can withstand a kiteboard slam, makes them even more robust to those washing machine wipe outs in the waves. Here's your chance to find out more about what has driven Sensi Graves to set up her own surf bikini line and what exactly it takes to run one. Sensi Graves modelling her 2015 collection. Did you grow up by the beach,...
