BORN IN 2012


A Smooth Sea, Never Made a Skilled Sailor
— #flklrsurf #wearenotforthemasses

 

FLKLR was forged in fire and water. Born from a burning love of the Ocean. It’s a twisting flame that comes from the gut and grips you ‘til you have no choice but to ride it. Hard. 

 

FLKLR is also a community. That’s why we are donating much needed water filters to villages in Bali, we are using conscientious alternative apparel, like pineapple leather, for our clothing, and we are expanding our community by sharing our values and love of the ocean with local kids. Because kids are the future. Duh.

WHY FOLKLORE



"It's not what you do, but, why you doing it".

FLKLR isn't intended to serve as a brand nor a company, but as a movement. We are a bunch of devoted water heads to the Ocean, Art & quality crafted goods. A movement of surfers to surfers, individuals that want to make a difference, stand out, not be quiet and stay grounded on what we believe,

FLKLR Surf - Sean Brewer

 



we don't want quantities, nor knock-outs, we are not told what to do by mass media, we are the people and belong to the people. We are here to make change, to unite as one. We demand uniqueness, fairness, loyalty and love.

Together, we will achieve this, save our oceans, our art, our music, what makes us unique. We are the story tellers of tomorrow.


He who goes to sea for pleasure would go to Hell for a pastime.

FEATURED PROJECTS

 
FLKLR Surf, water filters

Water filters



Bali is running out of water fast, and in two years there may be no drinkable water left. For every board we sell, we give two water filters (and a lifetime supply of replacements) to a village in Bali in need of clean water.

Impact
FLKLR Alternative materials

ALt. materials 



Even the surf industry often uses products which are not good for the environment. FLKLR is committed to conscientious production of goods, which is why we are working with alternative apparel (like pineapple leather and plantain) and partnering with genius brand Indosole to offer environmentally friendly clothing and footwear.

FLKLR Surf, youth

YES, YOUTH



We want to share our love of the ocean and our environmentally aware ethos with Bali, which is why we are expanding the FLKLR community. Every Sunday we will take a group of children from a local orphanage and teach them how to surf – lighting the fire that burns bright in the FLKLR community.

GEARMINDED



Our conversation started with an Instagram story. I had just finished the sixteenth issue of Waversons Magazine, a publication rooted in surf art and culture for LA and Orange County, CA. The solid black cover, lacking any sign of complexity, read, “the surf industry is fucked.” With an emphasis on ‘industry’, I put this out on the Gearminded stories and caught the attention of Mar Cubillos at Folklore Surf...
