 The Art of Drying Off

Slowtide was founded in 2015 by Kyle Spencer, Dario Phillips & Wylie Von Tempsky in California. We started Slowtide to fill a void in a market we found to be uninspiring and mundane. Additionally the first product we created was a functional, new medium for art on a premium 100% cotton towel. However Since then we’ve introduced a selection of beach and bath towels, blankets and ponchos made from a variety of best-in-class materials. Furthermore Inspired by all bodies of water and our love for art, Slowtide is a collaboration of three friends who wanted to convey their lifestyle through unique products.

In addition We’ve been featured in GQ, HypeBeast, Outside Magazine, Vogue, Forbes, Surfer Magazine & Juxtapoz. Slowtide works with world-renowned artists, athletes and brands like Sage Erickson, Takashi Murakami, Stussy, Curren Caples, Clark Little as well as Acacia Swimwear. Our goal is to make the daily ritual of drying off an art form.

Jeff Canham is an artist and designer from Seattle who resides in San Francisco.

From holding the position of art director at Surfer Magazine. Learning the time-honored craft of sign painting at New Bohemia Signs.

It’s Polarized only better

Furthermore what you may not know is that there is a hidden enemy out there for your eyes that even the strongest pair of polarized sunglasses won’t protect you from. That evil invisible force is called HEV light, which also can seriously damage those optical windows of your.

Additionaly Lucky for you, not only do we have great polarized sunglasses but also each pair features our patented WildLife Lens Technology. This is the only technology in the marketplace that blocks 99.9% of HEV rays and provides superior clarity with an added benefit of a visual energy boost, allowing you to be as wild as you want without any concern of slowing down!

High Energy Visible (HEV) light, also known as blue light, consists of high-frequency light waves. The light spectrum consists of many different colored light waves. All with varying frequencies. All of these light waves naturally enter your eyes all at once. Without any consistency or pattern. Many things attribute to this inconsistency, such as changing weather, reflective surfaces as well as movement of things in your line of sight. Thus making it almost impossible to see real color definition. Our WildLife Lens Technology adjusts to these intrusive factors by cutting out the reflective light waves. Allowing light to enter your eyes evenly and consistently. We’ve also added an infused pigment into our lens that focuses on the specific colored light waves that enhance color perception and gives your eyes true definition clarity.
