Until now, the hardest part of getting into the water was getting in and out of your suit and boots.
That’s why we created WETSOX – an ultra-stretch sock that creates a frictionless barrier between you and your suit & boots eliminating this issue and letting you slide in and out of your equipment faster than ever before... This means less time getting ready and more time enjoying the surf.
Using WETSOX is easy- just slide them on before you get into your suit- then slip on your boots (you can wear WETSOX under your boots!) now- go surf or dive or explore! When you're finished you'll be able to get out of your gear with ease. Then rinse your socks with fresh water and hang them to quick dry!
This also means way less suit-stretch, ripped seams and general wear and tear on your equipment.
Cold to the bones out there? HOTSOX adds an additional layer of warmth and protection, while maintaining a frictionless barrier. Use them on the coldest of days or when your boots are worn out
Our fundraising goal:
Why $15,000? With your support, we’ll be able to produce our first scaled production run and finalize our sustainable packaging! This step really takes our company to the next level, allowing us to expand our brand into retailers and surf shops. This step is only possible with the help of folks like you.
An eye toward the environment:
We're all familiar with the plastic bag trick, which makes it a little easier to get into a wetsuit. However, you can't wear a plastic bag under your booties like you can a pair of WETSOX. Furthermore, plastic bags won't help you get OUT of your equipment like WETSOX can. While we're on the subject – where do all those plastic bags end up, anyway?
Our goal isn't just to make the plastic bag trick obsolete - it's also to do our part in helping our beaches stay litter free. We know you aren't the ones leaving bags behind – we aren't either. But we hope eliminating the need to bring plastic bags to the beach overall is a step in the right direction.
Five-step instructions for our products:
Step 1. Put on WETSOX or HOTSOX like any other sock.
Step 2. Slide into your suit.
Step 3. Slide into your boots.
Step 4. Ride.
Step 5. Get out of the water and get your equipment off before you get pneumonia from standing outside, soaking wet, in the cold.
Your mom will thank us.

Risks and challenges
-We don't raise enough cash to make our socks and you don't get to use them. If this happens we will try again- albeit broken hearted.
-Scaled garment manufacturing always has its quips. While we're aiming to ship within 45 days of our Kickstarter close, if there is an issue in sourcing or material or something happens with our facility or vendors we'll contact you right away and let you know the new ETA. The good news is we've already lined these up and we're just waiting for your help to throw the switch.
-While we've gone through four prototype iterations to date and tested our product thoroughly, we're looking at this as our true scaled beta. We want to hear your questions and comments throughout your Wetsox journey.
-Our team is made up of an experienced mix of surfers, garment makers, marketers and retailers. We've worked our absolute hardest to bring you a durable product that will surpass your needs.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
