The Makaha Drowner

The Makaha-Kine Drowner is a replica of the original Makaha Drowner worn in the Makaha International Surf Championships. The first trunks purpose-built for surfing, the Makaha Drowner stayed out of the way when a surfer was taking off—and stayed on when they were getting beat in the shorebreak. No one ever drowned wearing the Makaha Drowners, but a lot of guys hauled okole through the Makaha Bowl with these trunks protecting their backsides.
