The R2 gets a more futuristic look with its sock-like design and fit, blending sleek lines and branded paneling all sitting upon the ultra responsive Boost™ sole cushioning. Stand out items on the apparel front include an all weather Windbreaker, a pullover, and track jacket, as well as a pair of cargo pocket pants.

'What is yesterday, today?' It may seem confusing to some but once put into perspective it's easy to see why York Surf is so set on remembering the past. Having grown up on the beaches of Muizenberg, the guys found a combined love for the legacy of surfing and the history of the beaches this small town had to offer. They feel the need to acknowledge the past whilst moving into the future and believe that every slice of today should have a piece of yesterday in it. They enjoy the legacy left by those before them and so feel it should be preserved for years to come. That means blending the soul of the original with the technology of the present. The first drop includes two styles of sweater both in Navy and Black.
