In honor of Father's Day, we want to pay tribute to the man who started it all, the father of Katin, Mr. Walter Katin.   

 Walter, a tenaciously friendly man, both short and robust, always donned an iconic ensemble of a powder-blue jumpsuits zipped up to the neck with a captain’s hat. Earning the nickname the “Captain,” for both his style and passion for sailing his boat “The Southern Seas,” Walter proudly took on the title of craftsman within the canvas business. Walter even designed the very first surf trunk himself.

Today we proudly continue to pay tribute to Walter and his iconic legacy through each collection we produce.
