Hang Ten is a surf wear clothing company that was founded in 1960 by Doris Moore and Duke Boyd in Seal Beach, California. They aimed to create a clothing brand that encapsulated the California surf culture of the time. They started out by producing board shorts designed to withstand the wear and tear of the waves and later moved on to other products, like t-shirts and surf accessories. The brand's golden, embroidered bare feet logo quickly became iconic and appeared in the cheeky Hang Ten advertisements that were often on the inside cover of Surfer Magazine.
Hang Ten was one of the first surf brands to sponsor surfing events and help surfers become established, competitive athletes. Hang Ten has hosted multiple established surfing competitions around the world. It was also the first surf brand to go international, licensing a foreign apparel manufacturer in the late 60s. Although Moore and Boyd sold the company in the 70s, the brand remains recognizable on a global level among surfers and lovers of surfing culture.
