How it all started
SunDaze was born from a serendipitous encounter between Manon and Rebecca in the magical Mentawai Islands. Independently, each of us had harbored the idea of creating this brand, a distant dream carefully tucked away. But when the stars aligned and our paths crossed in one of the world's most remote surf spots, the Mentawais, something magical unfolded.
Our surf trip was a rollercoaster ride, filled with unexpected twists and turns. With no particular expectations, we found ourselves in survival mode, perched on the roof of an unstable wooden boat, our hair kissed by saltwater, battling sunburns and reef-induced wounds. It was during these moments that we shared our dreams, both longing to create a surf brand with bold designs, fits that complimented women’s shape, superior quality, and, above all, a functional key pocket. And so, SunDaze was born—a creation emerging from an unforgettable experience.
The cliché saying that the universe works in mysterious ways is undeniable in our story. Coming from vastly different backgrounds, Rebecca hailing from the Seychelles and Manon from The Netherlands, we managed to serendipitously cross paths and embark on the most rewarding project of our lives. Everything leading up to this point seems to have been orchestrated by fate. As two determined Scorpio girls with ambitious aspirations, we aim to foster a community of like-minded individuals who share our passion for the ocean, travel, and making a positive impact on our collective future.
More recently, Rebecca has been pulled in a different direction, so Manon now spearheads SunDaze with Rebecca's unwavering love and support. Nevertheless, Rebecca remains an integral part of the SunDaze community, and you'll continue to see her gorgeous smile on our surf trips.
Our vision is to build a global community of like-minded individuals, uniting them through the spirit of SunDaze. One of the ways in which we do this is through our Facebook group —a space where individuals can connect, arrange meet-ups for exhilarating surf sessions, seek and share tips and advice, and foster meaningful connections.
We sincerely hope you find delight in our collections and eagerly anticipate glimpsing all of you wearing our pieces while embracing that coveted "SunDaze state of mind."
