Never underestimate the importance of a warm hoody. Whether you’re checking the surf on a bonechilling morning or warming up after a dawn patrol, a pullover like the Paradise Hoody ought to be standard issue uniform for surfers. The cut is full and relaxed and the hood itself is slightly oversized so it’ll cover your eyes when you’re hung-over or want to retreat inside your shell. The only quirky thing is the drawstring around the waist. Chicks will dig it, but most men will find it a bit too girly. No worries, I yanked the drawstring right out and it’s good to go. As for the fabric, it’s soft as a baby’s blanket and since it’s made of 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton fleece it’s as easy on the environment as it is on your skin.
