Living For Local And Loving It

LAPA SIDE – SURF, BOOGIE & LIFESTYLE BRAND
EST. 2017

Growing up on the coast of South Africa, the concept & idea behind the brand stems from our love for the ocean & years spent in local lifestyle production. You need to love what you do & have a passion & understanding of it & draw inspiration from the beauty around you. It’s important to produce quality garments & find what makes customers wanting more.

We’ve spent most of our lives on the beach, living the dream & along the way getting to understand the trends of local lifestyle & beachwear. Most of our adult years spent working for other really well known SA surf & lifestyle brands, so we decided to take our years of experience & turn our dreams into reality.

We’ve taken a massive stance on how our clothing is made & will always remain a 100% locally made & a proudly South African brand. You can take pride in the fact you’ve purchased something made in SA & is made by people who absolutely love what we do!
