After the Rain, tips its hat to the romantic stillness after the Storm. And when the winter storms have calmed we seek our way to the beach where ever in the world we are. In Torquay celebrating spring has arrived means ‘jumping the rock’. It´s cleansing, a fresh start and we do it with friends.
After the Rain is our 2019 swim & surf collection, but also our interpretation of what it might mean in your country.. watch the video and keep reading.
The After the Rain Collection is created with a uniform in mind, an ocean version of what a woman would want to wear everyday, well made timeless pieces designed for Ocean Dwellers. Created in Torquay. Made out of recycled lycra in Australian.
[Rain in Hawaiian]
It constantly rains in Hawaii – but that doesn’t change the temperature or us from getting wet “laughs” – When we surf in the rain, we´re surrounded by the element – we glide through waters washed by waters straight from heaven – does it get any better?

During the rain we seek shelter in our favourite local coffee shop of trust – enjoying a cup of dark, warm and “pure” Indonesian coffee watching the surf – soaking it all in – the smell, the taste, the happiness.

After the rain, we order the larges jug of Sangria, order way too much Tapas and then jump on our Vespa to take us home for the daily siesta.

Après pluie- after the rain we like to take the opportunity to catch up on life after the surf. We gather the girls, the “finest” red wine, cheese and we yes we still smoke too.

After the rain, we walk down the still wet and warm streets in the search for a chilled Espresso Martini – just to sit down watching the sea calming and easing again and the fishermen rolling out their boats.

After the rain we pack our pick-nick, gather our friends and ride on our bikes to the closest lake. This is where you can find us during the best day of the year.. “summer”.
