An Award Winning Design
Our Betty Bottom surf & swim shorts have been awarded Gold in the Swimwear category of the Clean + Conscious Awards 2022. This style was designed to stay up in all conditions no matter how big your wipe out is. They are double-lined, with a super high-waisted cut and curved hem at sides. Featuring a full bottom coverage to focus on your wave count, not pulling out a wedgy.
Designed by Oceanwomen
With over 25 years of throwing ourselves into the ocean throughout Australasia, the Pacific and Indian Oceans; over fast & sucky reefs, punchy beachies and rocky pointbreaks, we've done our time discovering what works and what doesn't when it comes to functional and comfortable surfwear.
The fan favourite Betty Bottom features our signature super-high waistband and is considered a staple in any discerning oceanwoman's surf & swim wardrobe.
Our Swim is Made from Recycled Materials
Since 2016, we have chosen to source and use ECONYL® regenerated nylon yarn in our surf garments. Why? ECONYL® uses synthetic waste such as industrial plastic, waste fabric, and fishing nets from oceans, then recycles and regenerates them into a new nylon yarn that is exactly the same quality as virgin nylon.
As a small business, we are a constant work in progress doing the best we can with the resources available to us. While we research and sample alternative materials to nylon-based textiles, we will continue to only use recycled and regenerated yarns in our surf and swimwear.
