A print inspired by where the sea meets the sand
The Waterlust image that inspired this print was taken in a punchy shore break on south Florida's famous beaches. As wind blows across the open ocean, it transfers some of its' kinetic energy to the water in the form of waves. These waves exist in all shapes and sizes, from tiny capillary waves that scour the sea surface with ripples to large behemoth swells. Next time you visit the beach, let the rhythmic arrival of these aquatic undulations remind you how the atmosphere and ocean work together in mysterious ways!
Just a few Ways to rock your Waterlust sun mask:
92% Repreve® RPET (recycled polyester), 8% lycra, giving 10 post-consumer plastic bottles a positive future. 100% awesome! Printed using dye-sublimation, an environmentally friendly process which uses no water and minimizes waste.
Built with a 50+ Ultraviolet Protection Factor and scooped back coverage to keep your face and neck protected from that giant fireball in the sky!
Resilient 4-way stretch and recovery for superior shape retention.
Sorbtek fiber technology for quick dry, moisture wicking and breathability. Get wet, get dry, stay stoked!
Versatility for wear in a variety of ways, in & out of the water. Keep your face and neck covered or hold your hair back.

Their research supports the development of disaster-resistant and resilient coastal communities in South Florida and around the World.
It's well known that over 70% of Earth's surface is covered with water, but did you realize this impacts the flow of heat and energy around the world? Water has a specific heat value, a material property that describes how much energy is required to heat it, that is approximately four times greater than air. This means that air will heat and cool much faster than water. Because of this, the air and sea are often interacting at different temperatures and exchanging energy. The study of air-sea interaction is critical to understanding the life cycle of a tropical cyclone. As a storm develops it can strengthen or weaken depending on the available energy it can extract from the ocean's surface. The processes that drive this energy exchange are extremely complex and are the topic of ongoing scientific research. At the Alfred C. Glassell Jr. SUSTAIN Laboratory at the Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science, scientists utilize a state of the art wind/wave tank to better understand these intricacies. 10% of your purchase will be donated to support the graduate students that work in this lab. Specifically, the funds will be used for creative projects that enable the students to communicate their work to the broader public such as through film, photography and art.
