ABOUT KATIN USA
In the early 1950’s Nancy and Walter Katin were in the business of making canvas boat covers. It was upon request from local surfers that they made the first pair of custom canvas surf trunks. Word spread of their ability to withstand the demands of the sea and an industry was born. In 1976, Nancy initiated the annual Katin Pro/Am Team Challenge at the north side of Huntington Beach’s pier, a team event where amateur surfers can compete alongside the pros. Surf legends such as Kelly Slater and Tom Curren have won the Katin Pro/Am. In 1986, Nancy passed away leaving the company to Sato Hughes, her loyal seamstress. It is with the same mindset as the founders that Katin continues to provide trunks and clothing inspired by our heritage with an emphasis on quality product that are Made in the USA. www.katinusa.com
