Stockholm Surfboard Club, co-founded by two Acne Studios alumni, Manne Haglund Glad and Anton Edberg in 2019, is a Swedish brand pushing the boundaries of contemporary surf and streetwear, embracing a deep fascination for cross-generational surfing culture. It proudly joins our brand roster, redefining surfwear with inspiration drawn from vintage surfboard graphics, album covers, and merchandise tees. Stockholm Surfboard Club's garments are characterised by kitsch graphics, vibrant colours, 70s and vintage workwear-inspired silhouettes. With a mix of unconventional expressions, their clothing goes far beyond the expectations of a typical Scandinavian or surfwear brand.
In an interview with Highsnobiety, creative director Manne Haglund Glad stated, "The surfboard is where it all started for Stockholm Surfboard Club: the craftsmanship and the history of making surfboards." The brand presents a clear yet indistinct vision, blending a surfboard company with a clothing label. Their literal inspiration for all their pieces, surfboard fins, is available for purchase on their website in a technicolour array of shapes and sizes. When envisioning surf culture, one might think of loose-fitting t-shirts, palm tree and wave graphics. However, Stockholm Surfboard Club offers a unique interpretation for this subculture, applying kitsch graphics to a wide range of colour palettes and employing unconventional styling reminiscent of 70s silhouettes, such as tailored bell bottoms, scarves, and form-fitting t-shirts.
Blending the worlds of Scandinavian fashion and surfwear, Stockholm Surfboard Club creates garments that resonate with a distinctive blend of vintage and contemporary design references. Explore the vibrant world of Stockholm Surfboard Club, both online and in our stores.
