Pro bodyboarders Ben Player, Dave Winchester and Chad Jackson somehow found time while competing on the Bodyboarding World Tour in 2004 to start their own fashion label, mainly because they wanted to be able to wear whatever the hell they wanted while surfing and travelling on tour. Designed for anyone who loves fashion and the ocean, each collection comes with their own unique prints, inspired by the locations they most love to surf...
That is where Grand Flavour first found it’s feet...
As well as collectively directing the company the Bodyboarding World Tour was always the main thing on all their minds for the next 6 years.
From 2007 until the winter of 2014 we used Indonesia as our manufacturing hub. In typical fashion timing all production trips with pending swells the brand was evolving as far as the beautiful city of Bali could take us.
Boosted by the added attention of Chad making the decision to drop off the tour and put all his time into the brand in 2010 it seems Grand Flavour was no longer a side project but a fully functioning company.
Moving forward, in the Spring of 2014 the final steps of producing collections out of China have been applied and have given us endless avenues to go down for creating and producing the exact ranges with the highest quality we have been working on since day one.
Crazy... Now Grand Flavour is independently owned and operated and producing limited release ranges offshore to ensure quality and better customer service. Every garment purchased will now become a piece of history as a one off product to be loved and lorded.
Now things are getting really exciting..
Given everything you now know when it all boils down to it, we all share the one same desire to chase that white line, hop on a plane and eventually feel the salt on your skin.
Don’t lose sight of the big picture...
