Carve Designs

Carve Designs

Womens Surf and Swim Wear
On a surf trip to Mexico in 2003, surfers & athletes Jennifer Hinton & Thayer Sylvester had a vision: to be able to surf comfortably without having to squeeze their rears into boardshorts designed for juniors. They took a leap of faith, quit their jobs and dedicated themselves to designing and manufacturing boardshorts for real women that would fit well and look great in and out of the water. Carve Designs has evolved into an active apparel company offering a full range of technical waters sports, après surf and lifestyle collections for all seasons. They love what they do -- pioneering a brand for the Carve woman, one who is passionate, fun, versatile, organic, feminine and inspirational. Carve Designs is a match made in heaven for SwellWomen. Each piece is functional, fabulous and designed for the female surfer & yogi. www.carvedesigns.com
