Put the Fun in Sun ☀️
Keeping kids warm in the water and protected from the sun doesn't have to be as boring as a black wetsuit. That’s why we’ve created full-length recyclable wetties that are as fun as the beach itself.
Made to take the chill off the water while providing 100% hassle-free sun protection, Fants versatile 2mm wetsuits are ideal for uninterrupted play in and out of the water.
ONE LESS JOB
Having your child's skin protected in and out of the water means you can forget about the futile task of re-applying sunscreen to wet sandy arms and legs. Just pop a hat on them, kick back and let your kids enjoy the sun and surf without worrying they'll end up looking like Paul Hogan.
KIDS GROW. SO DOES WASTE.
Kids outgrow wetsuits faster than wetsuits get old, so we've come up with a way to use that fact to give you up to 20% off your next purchase as well as reduce our waste footprint.
Once your child has outgrown their Fants wetsuit, you can return it and we'll assess its condition and ship you a new one in the next size at up to 20% discount depending on what shape the old wettie is in.
We'll then put your old wetsuit in a secondhand section of the Fants site. The idea is to reduce waste by keeping each wetsuit in circulation as long as possible.
Please note that we only launched in December 2020, so recycled wetsuits are in very limited supply. Keep an eye on our Instagram page and this site for updates on recycled wetsuit arrivals. It'll be a first in best dressed situation.
Why Our "Woah Yelly" Wettie is What FANTS is All About
We absolutely LOVE Woah Yelly. Not just because it's an awesome print made especially for us by the incredible illustrator, Johanna Walderdorff, but also because it represents so much of what Fants is about.
Annnnd, We're Back!
After a crazy successful test run last summer, we spent the Melbourne winter lockdown developing three new designs with some of our favourite artists.
It has been a real mission but we're now stoked to have them ready for Spring!
The Slow Burn of Sun Damaged Skin
Skin damage accrues over the course of a person’s life, beginning in childhood. So if we can reduce our kids overall sun exposure then we drastically reduce their chances of developing skin cancers later in life. But that shouldn’t mean keeping kids in the cupboard with an iPad and a milk arrowroot biscuit. It just means making sun smartness a positive experience that kids willingly opt into.
WE ARE FANTILY (Get up Everybody and Sing)
OK that's a pretty bad pun. Point is, Fants is about family. We are two parents and two young kids who love living in the city but also want the coast to be central to our lives. Fants is about us bridging that gap, in life and in design.
