“We launched Cabana Bro because we wanted to design high quality swim trunks with a perfectly tailored fit, rad patterns and vibrant colors. We figured we couldn’t be the only ones searching for a modern take on classically cut trunks.” – Jay Bell, Founder & CEO
Jay Bell and a classmate launched Cabana Bro in 2013 after graduating from UC San Diego. When they couldn’t find beach shorts (classically cut swim trunks) like the local legends used to wear, they created their own line of ridiculously awesome, insanely comfortable swim shorts, and had an instant hit on their hands! As quality-obsessed entrepreneurs, they still manage all the funding, design, and operations for the brand themselves.
Cabana Bro is based in sunny Santa Monica, CA, where people of all walks of life share a common obsession – the beach. Shorts are worn all day, every day - to the beach, to the bars, and everything in between. Shorts are a way of life for the SoCal crowd and THAT is the inspiration for Cabana Bro.
With a perfectly tailored fit that lets your legs see just the right amount of sun and a price tag that doesn’t break the bank, Cabana Bro seeks to compliment your active lifestyle while being stylish enough to turn heads at the beach or out on the town.
You’ll find our signature colors and patterns to be bold, vibrant, and fun. These are swim trunks, after all, and should be worn with confidence, while having fun and not taking life too seriously. If you’re like us, some of your most epic moments have been spent rocking trunks and a tank.
Everything In Life Should Be As Fun As Our Shorts!
