Our Story

In the early 1970’s Señor Lopez’s founder left Santa Barbara, California solo with $60 in his pocket to travel throughout Mexico for 6 months in search of the perfect wave.  Bringing back to California with him a cotton pullover hoodie he’d purchased near the surf-town of Puerto Escondido, he not only had an obsession to return to Mexico to surf that perfect wave….but to now also put his design and artistic abilities to use producing the perfect surf hoodie to sell to surf shops back home in California.

Since those early days in 1972 Señor Lopez hoodies have been sold in the best specialty surf stores across America and today his products are sold in more than 1000 locations throughout America alone.  Along the way his unique design skills have been requested to assist with both the design and manufacture of product for other equally-as-innovative labels including Billabong™, Quiksilver™, Roxy™ & Hurley™

Having met Señor Lopez on our own travels & adventures in California we’re totally excited to be NZ’s exclusive supplier of “The Original Senor Lopez”™ surf products, available here now for the first time since 1972.
