Last Call: Sunny Garcia Tees
Help the Garcias reach their goal.
In any sport, there are figures who are held a notch above the rest; who enjoy a permanent status of prominence, regardless of momentary performance and cultural relevance—what’s colloquially referred to as ‘legend status’.
Sunny Garcia embodies Hawaiian surfing in a wholly unique way—one that is never to be replicated. Back in December, we launched our Sunny Tee, with 100% of proceeds being directed towards Sunny’s Go Fund Me Page. The timing was fitting, given that it was the Triple Crown (a trophy Sunny has hoisted no less than 6 times) and at the time we were running a weekly segment called ‘Kittens and Lions’ based on Sunny’s now infamous quote:
“You can be the best surfer anywhere else in the world but it’s only in Hawaii you’ll see if they are a great surfer. A great surfer will look comfortable, even though he probably isn’t. The best will draw out lines and demand respect on a wave. You can either look like a lion or you can look like a kitten. Most look like kittens.”
As expected, the surfing community rallied around the Hawaiian icon, leading to us to selling out of Larges and X-Larges off the bat.
Recently, we checked in on the Go Fund Me and realized that they have raised $141,331 of their $150,000 goal.
With the family being just 9k shy of their target, we figured we’d offer a very, very limited restock of sizes on the Sunny Tee in an effort to help the Garcias over the line.
