About Hang Ten
In 1960, legendary surfer Duke Boyd founded Hang Ten out of necessity. He designed the very first “board shorts” to be capable of withstanding the rigors of surfing. The Hang Ten “two feet” logo has been iconic in the surf and beach world ever since. Hang Ten has played a pivotal role in growing surfing from an exotic pastime to an integral part of mainstream American life. Today, Hang Ten is recognized around the world. Hang Ten recently launched Hang Ten Gold, an exclusive label for the more discerning Hang Ten lifestyle customer. Privately held and owned by American Brand Holdings, Hang Ten Gold’s headquarters are in New York, NY. For more information, visit www.hangtengold.com.
