I grew up surfing at Nantasket Beach in Hull, Ma which was fortunate back in the day to have 3 surf shops and several club teams. A 40 year reunion entitled Surf 68 was held in 2008 and many re-connected and started surfing together again.
I purchased a new wetsuit and was totally unsatisfied with the head covering selection. Additionally, I noticed that many of my male friends had sparse head coverage and were using a variety diflucan dog of hats for sun protection. As a quilter, I decided to experiment with a baseball cap made out of 100% neoprene 3 ml, water and bacteria resistant. I subsequently worked with a couple of manufacturers and tweaked my design. Although the primary use is intended for surfers, the cap has its benefits for any water sport as well just to wear in the shower or walking in the rain. The name wavzcap reflects my love of the sea.
Another great idea that grew out of the reunion is the creation of a surf museum, which has been named the Atlantic Surfing Museum and is a 501 c3 nonprofit. The museum has established a physical presence in an incubator setting in Wall, NJ, right off the main access road to the beaches, Belmar Boulevard. As a board member, I will donate a portion of each sale to the museum.

Additionally several of my surfing peers have developed skin cancer from years of exposure to excessive sun. Wearing a wavzcap will offer UV protection and hopefully prevent a younger generation from skin melanoma.
Please contact me if you wish to purchase for re-sale and please send me a jpg of you wearing the cap for inclusion in our gallery.
Keep returning as I plan to design my own neoprene fabric and hope to offer unique headwear and other products in the future.
Keep on riding!
