About If you are sick to death of the big clothing brands floggingsome mediocre phrase with a milled-out scribble on a shirt; then GrandFlavour is for you. It is without the choked out corporate identity ofa cigar smokin’ fat man looking for your green. We felt this same way;so we signed up, collected our creativity and cashed some cheques, andthen some more cheques for this initiative.
Grand Flavour is the brainchild of Ben Player, Dave Winchester andChad Jackson. Grand Flavour embraces the culture and diversity of ourbodyboarding community and combines a brand and product we actuallywant to wear.
“Too long has the bodyboarding community been crying out for a brandwhich reflects the true uniqueness of our sport,” says current worldchampion bodyboarder Ben Player. “The bodyboarding community is young,vibrant and less conservative than the current bodyboarding fashionofferings depict. We wanted to build a product that really representsthe youthfulness of our sport.”
Grand Flavour clothing is not solely designed by one person orgroup, instead many of the communities talented artists and designerscontribute to our products. Artists and fellow bodyboarders, MurrayBell of “Design is Kinky/Movement Mag” and Scott “The Yok” Hitchcockhave worked with us on unique products. “Our product speaks foritself,” says Chad Jackson, a well-respected bodyboarder in thecommunity. ” We have put more into this than into anything else we haveever done before”.
Currently our team consists of 2x World Champion Ben Player, PeerPole/reader Pole winner Dave Winchester, Big wave tow surf pioneer ChadJackson, Cade Sharp, Jared Houston, Lewy Finnegan and Charlie Holt.
