As unabashed fans of Slowtide’s approach to collaborations, we were thrilled to get a sneak peak at their new spring line, featuring a smattering of collaborations, most recently their beach towel featuring work of Florida-born, New York-based surfer and artist, Jason Woodside. 

Woodside’s no stranger to the surf space. Many readers will be no strangers to his work, his spray paint-soaked fingerprints showing up on city facades and gallery walls in Sydney, Los Angeles, New York, and Paris the last few years.

Meanwhile, on the commercial side, he’s been tapped by everyone from Haydenshapes to Adidas and other brands fond of his neon palate and geometric psychedelia. 



“Beach culture and surfing is embedded in my history, so a beach towel was always integrated into my life.” – Jason Woodside



While Slowtide’s fast-drying, 100% cotton, “soft-hand, sheared cotton velour face” and  “plush and absorbent looped terry back”  towels practically sell themselves, we’re big fans of the new collab’s bright and bold smattering of contrast patterns, which you can see below. 


Rattlecan radness and 100% super soft, absorbent cotton velour goodness.




“Painting a face or painting a tree, it means different things to different people. so why not remove the figurative aspect of it, and make it more abstract. But what you start to realize is that you have an impact on viewers, especially when you’re doing something on the street, or a collaboration with a brand.”
