Street and surf style is undoubtedly a hot look all year round. It is also one that has a timeless appeal and will always be fashionable, regardless of how many other trends come and go.
Kahuna is a brand which has really nailed the street/surf style look and we have a fantastic new selection of the brand’s watches. The Kahuna watches collection comprises of designs for men and women, ranging from edgy and eclectic, to feminine and elegant and traditionally sporty but with the striking and distinctive Kahuna edge.
Firstly, for the ladies, one of the most defining aesthetic features of Kahuna watches are the detailed and delicate floral patterns which tend to be stitched or weaved into the straps. The KLS-0133L Kahuna watch is a perfect example of this with the brown leather strap beautifully decorated with brown and pink floral stitching detailing – very hippy chic! For something ultra sophisticated and conveying the fresh Kahuna edge, the KLS-0136L watch with its gold plated stainless steel case and sleek white leather strap with white floral stitching is a simply stunning style.
Guys, you are also very well catered for with Kahuna watches! If you are seeking something bold and statement, a design with a trendy wide strap and prominent dial is a great option and also looks incredibly smart. The KUS-0021 G Kahuna watch with its wide brown textured leather strap and brown dial with silver and blue accents, is simple, representing the cool Kahuna attitude but with a masculine edge. If you are after something more sporty and casual, many Kahuna watches also include vibrant coloured fabric straps including the K1C-2005G for an extra statement finish!
Kahuna watches shape up very well in terms of function. With features including uni-directional bezels for use when diving or underwater, analogue and digital movements, alarms, calendars, stopwatch and date functions, Kahuna watches are also your ideal water companion with water resistance levels varying from 50m up to 100m.
Kahuna watches also go to prove that unique, vibrant style and high function doesn’t always have to come with an expensive price tag. Ranging from approximately £17.50 to £47.50, Kahuna watches are definitely a purse friendly accessory.
So, if you’re into your street and surf style and are seeking a watch that boasts function for sports and the cool aesthetic to enhance your everyday look, Kahuna could be the perfect brand for you!

The Animal brand was founded in 1987 by two surfers who had become increasingly frustrated at losing their watches whilst surfing or taking part in various other water sport activities. No watch seemed durable or robust enough to endure the impact of water and so the two surfers got to work on designing a strap made from webbing and Velcro to try and solve this problem.
Working in a small bedroom in one of their houses, the surfers produced enough straps to sell to their friends who were also surf and water sport enthusiasts. They wanted to make sure the product was completely effective and so the straps were tested by a number of people in a number of sports before progressing with the project. The watch straps were a big hit however and the designers used the profits to fund trips to Australia and Hawaii whereby they sold more of the straps to a larger group of people and discovered a more extensive market. What made the strap innovative and popular was the simplicity of its design in relation to how effective it was.
The Animal brand also gets involved with sports events and sponsors riders in many core sectors such as surfing, snowboarding, windsurfing, mountain biking and kite surfing. Each product is tried and tested by pro riders from each different sport to ensure that it provides maximum endurance and durability in even the most extreme conditions. This November, Animal will also be hosting and supporting the Animal Newquay Open which is a major surfing championships competition and is the last stop on the UK Pro Surf tour. As a result of the brand getting involved in the action and having experts in each sports field, this of course allows the products to be designed acording to the needs of the professional.
Animal is largely popular for its range of watches and incorporates the same original watch strap into the design. The designs of Animal watches are representative of the snow, skate and surf scene with bold vibrant colours and patterns. Aimed at free sports enthusiasts, the watches are fully water resistant and look incredibly striking and funky on the wrist. There is a watch designed for each specific sport but the styles are adaptable and also look great for everyday wear. There are also versions for males and females. With a chunky aesthetic, patterned dials and some watches incorporating the layered look on the strap, these watches are fashion forward but have a unique sporty style that immediately stands out from the crowd.
Animal watches are certainly built to go the distance and with trial and testing a major part of the design process, you can be sure that your Animal watch will be the ultimate expert whatever you extreme sport preference.
