Happy New Year to you all!

2015 has been an exciting year for us at Sandbucket. A lot of learning, leading to big improvements. We never stop testing our boardshorts, so we can make sure we improve what is not yet perfect. For sure, it is quite exciting, pushing the limits of our products meaning pushing our own limits in the water, so we indeed like that! (and drinking next to the pool has been in the process too of course, you never know, need to make sure our shorts work for that too!)

Hearing feedback from you helped us a lot as well. We have been working on a smart size selection system on the website, to make sure you never choose the wrong size when ordering ever. Online shopping can leave you wondering if you are ever going to choose to right size, or if the product is going to look the same when it reaches you. It has been a big focus for us, and 2016 will bring a great shopping experience, fear no more!

The new collection is getting ready to hit the beach this summer. We can already say that our boardshorts and swimshorts have been well improved, with new cuts and new designs, keeping a minimalist approach. We do very much care about what you think, so we will always improve towards meeting your expectations.

Some new products will hit the store too, but we will unveil that in the coming weeks!

Wishing you an amazing year 2016, full of discoveries and fun wherever you’ll find water!!

Yes, it is true that most of the world is now in full winter mode, but is doesn’t mean that you have to be cold, buy a puffy jacket and stay inside, waiting for summer to be back.You have already booked your ticket to paradise (if not you should, really), thinking about this amazing secret cove in the Philippines, or that white sand beach in Thailand, but yet cannot find a place selling swimwear anymore. Those old swim shorts need to be replaced, really, you know it! Or maybe you need a new pair of boardshorts for that crazy road trip with your mates. 

In any case, we are here! Summer is the only season we know, and our store is open all year long. So to make things even easier, the whole store is now at 20% off. Yes, that’s right, and of course the shipping is still free, worldwide. Well, unless you live in a crazy remote place, then we would have to talk about it!  
So don’t wait, order your trunks ASAP, you have until the 20th of December.
All orders are sent from Hong Kong, if you have a special request, feel free to drop us a line. We’ll make sure you get your order before your Winter Summer break!

Stoked to see Sandbucket featured in the latest issue of Time Out Hong Kong! 

“Life’s a beach, unless you have nothing to wear. Avid surfer and Sandbucket founder Romain Pitz saw a huge gap in the men’s swimwear market between ‘Villebrequin, which is ridiculously expensive and standard surf brands. There was nothing in the middle’, Pitz explains. “I want to create a brand encompassing discovery, travel and having fun, without being tied to just ‘surf’ specifically.”

Sandbucket’s minimalist approach to design is a thoughtful one. The material is soft enough to be worn around the city but tried and tested for the water. The colour block patterns come in vibrant hues that are bright without being flashy, while the understated prints add some dimension. For a guy that wants a quality pair of trunks in and out of the water, this brand is one to keep an eye on.”

By Elizabeth Choi, Time Out Hong Kong, issue 188.
