Level Six, a leader in paddling gear and apparel, is proud to meet industry and parental demand for a cool kids summer clothing and paddling tops. The line features a high degree of sun protection and function.
â€œWe are fathers now and we went looking for sun protection products for our own kids, but the selection was very, very limited.â€ co-owner Tyler Lawlor says. â€œWe decided to make some quality surf shorts and sun protection for our kids, and make it look good.â€
The tight collection of summer clothing includes both boys and girls surf shorts and sun protection tops and uni-suits. The designs are based off of the adult line and the designs are surf inspired. â€œWe leave out monster trucks and super hero’s from our designs. We are about surf and being outside.â€ says Stig Larsson, co-owner.
â€œOur line of adult rash guards/sun protection tops has been so popular, the demand was there from parents who wanted something for their kids too. They are active parents, outside doing stuff with there kids, playing in the water going to the beach.â€ says Larsson. â€œParents are health conscious, they understand the dangerous effects of too much sun exposure.
The Merlin and The Jester kids paddling jackets leave nothing overlooked and are designed to help kids enjoy their paddling experience. â€œKeeping kids warm and happy is a key ingredient to making them enjoy their paddling experience.â€ says Lawlor.
The kids line has been well thought out, highly adjustable and easy on and off. Level Six is working hard to create future paddlers.
