Swim in Pink

Every year during the month of October there is an annual campaign to increase awareness of breast cancer via fundraisers and wearing pink. By participating during the month, even by just wearing pink, we draw attention to the disease. The purpose of drawing attention is to get women and men to take the steps required to detect breast cancer early and to help raise funds to find a cure. Swimmer.com.au wants to help swimmers wear pink in and out of the water to raise awareness by offering a 10% discount on everything pink on our website for the month of October 2014. Simply enter promotion code: PINK in the coupon section on checkout.

Donate to the Cause with Vorgee Wave of Hope Swim Caps & Goggles

Vorgee’s Special Edition Wave of Hope Products not only raises awareness to the cause, but a certain amount of the profits go to fundraising for breast cancer research. The line offers two unique swim caps in pink (of course) and white and a high quality pair of pink goggles.

The two swim caps of the Wave of Hop line feature a stylized wave along with the famous ribbon. It comes in pink with the Wave of Hope National Breast Cancer Fund Pink Swim Cap or you can opt for white with the Wave of Hope National Breast Cancer Fund White Swim Cap.

Our personal favorite from this line are the Vorgee Missile National Breast Cancer Foundation Mirrored Lens Goggles, because this is an exceptional product even with the charitable aspects aside. These are ultra-light lenses that are perfect for athletic and fitness swimming. The eye seals are actually super soft and comfortable with silicone material, but they also work great for sealing the water out. There are four interchangeable nose bridges, so that you can custom fit to you. Now they’ve topped it all off with pink straps. BRB- I need to go buy a pair of the Vorgee Missile National Breast Cancer Foundation Mirrored Lens Goggles for myself.

Fun Water Activities for the School Holidays

School Holiday Fun

We are so glad in Australia that the warm weather is finally coming! After the long, hard winter it is time to hit the beach and water for some much earned fun. Those lucky kids also just happen to have a holiday coming up, so we thought we’d give you some ideas to inspire the kids in the pool in case they catch the “I’m bored” syndrome that is so prevalent among today’s youth!

1. Swim Lesson/Swim Team
It is never too early or too late to start swimming for fitness, athleticism and fun. Help your little one become at one with the water by signing them up for activities at your local pool.

2. Go Fishing
Most kids only have so much of an attention span for fishing, but if you are fishing chances are you are near some water that looks mighty inviting to jump into. With the Rival Off the Hook Boys Trunks you can spend part of the day fishing then the other part swimming to make for the perfect warm spring day.

3. Swim with the Mermaids
Ariel must have been crazy for wanting to come to land, because we have to agree with her crab friend Sebastian that life is much better down where it’s wetter. Embrace the mermaid beauty with the Funkita Ocean Princess Girls One Piece Swimsuit.

4. Be a Super Hero
Every boy wants to be a super hero. Let your little boy really get into character with the Q Swimwear Crazy Heroes Jammers. These fun boys jammers feature two colorful super heroes that will inspire your little guy to save the day.

5. Count the Colors or Dots
For our little ones, every day is a new learning opportunity. It shouldn’t stop with swimwear! Practice your colors and count the stripes with your little girl when she wears the Funkita Rainbow Racer Toddler Girls Tankini. For boys, have him try to count all the dots on the Funky Trunks Anti Freeze Toddler Boys Trunks- that should keep him busy for at least a little while.

6. Bikini Babe in Training
We all remember being little girls wanting to be big girls. It was fun to wear makeup, talk about boys and wish to be older- although now many of us wish we could go back to simpler days. Let your girls play pre-teen with the Hive Euphoria Girls Sports Bikini.

Ladies, you have a choice between either the Sea Shells Womens One Piece and the Sea Shells Girls One Piece with watermelon pink, green and white coloured shells.

Pink Tribe versus the Blue Tribe? Where do you stand?

 

PInk and Blue Army Funkita

Line drawn in the sand there are two types of people: those who like blue and those who like pink. With Funky Trunks and Funkita's new line of girls swimwear and boys toddlers swimwear, there will be no mistaking whose side you are on in the epic battle of the colour palettes! Whether you are ready or not, it is time to stand up for what you believe in when you hit the water. Let us introduce you to the new pink and blue prints that will serve as your armor for combat.

GIRLS ONLY! The Pink Tribe

Boys in the past may have sometimes gotten away with stealing our colour ladies, but once the Pink and Blue wars broke out boys were absolutely banned from the colour pink with no exceptions. Now the power of pink in the hands where it belongs, so we no longer have to deal with the pesky boys. Let the blue tribe sort those boys out.

For all you strong, creative and smart girls out there, get ready to join the pink tribe by checking out the official uniform the Pink Army Girls One Piece. This swimwear features a scattering of pink, white and black that will have you ready for battle in the water. So grab your Pink Army Girls One Piece, attitude, and strength, and meet the rest of us in the pool.

The All-Inclusive Blue Tribe

Members of the blue tribe began to form together because the pink tribe would just not follow along with the rules. Boys and girls are allowed in the blue tribe, so it is a good tribe for those who do not mind being exposed to cooties and other germs!

For the toddler boys, we have the super cool Anti-Freeze Toddlers Trunks in the classic and cosy Funky Trunks cut with a playful blue, white and black print.  Feel free to wiggle and thrash as much as you want in these comfy trunks all day in the pool.

For the girls, we have the Anti-Freeze Girls One Piece with blue, white and black that'll motivate you to zoom through the pool with your opponents. A huge advantage of this blue swimwear is that you'll more easily blend into the blue hues of water, so make sure to use this camouflage to your advantage in the pool.

Don't Fit into a Tribe?

Maybe there are more than two types of people in this world, and you don't really dig pink and blue. That is okay, just don't let members of the pink and blue tribe know. Come explore the rest of our swimwear options to browse a rainbow of different options. P.S. Don't forget to check out our swimwear sale for great deals of the top swimwear brands out there.

Brand New Mens and Boys Athletic Swimwear from Funky Trunks

Funky Trunks Men Athletic

To do your best in the pool you need a good attitude. You also need technique, training and will-power. Behind all of these lies something simple, something we all wear to the pool- swimwear. As every single swimmer knows, not all swimwear is created equal. The makers of Funky Trunks came into the swimwear world dissatisfied with the quality and comfort of mens swimwear and boys swimwear, so they made an entirely different quality of swimwear. The type of swimwear that is made for guys by guys, so every stitch, design and feature is created with athletic swimmers like you in mind.

This year Funky Trunks has released a whole new line of trunks for men and boys that breaks the mold again. These pieces of athletic swimwear don't just offer cool and unique designs, but they offer comfort that is just unparalleled in other brands. Let us briefly introduce you 2014's line of Funky Trunks swimwear, because we know swimmers are all really busy people.

Mens Athletic Funky Trunks

For the signature Funky Trunk in mens sizes there are three distinctive colours in three very similar designs, so hopefully shopping won't take you too long today. The prints of these trunks are a sleek maze of hexagon that come in blue with the Liquid Ice Mens Trunks, gold in the Crystal Gold Mens Trunk or red in the Crystal Flame Mens Trunks.  Really it is all up to your colour preference, but we think you look good in gold.

Boys Athletic Frunky Trunks

Rad designs are about with the Funky Trunks designs for boys this year, so hold onto your hats kids when checking out these totally awesome designs. Check out the totally cool hexagon party with the Liquid Ice Boys Trunks and the Crystal Flame Boys Trunks. Warning: these styles are only for future champions, so any of you not willing to give it all should search for a different brand of swimwear!

Mens and Boys Jammers 

Available in both mens and boys sizes, Funky Trunks Jammers offer the same high quality as their trunks. We really liked the explosive designs of the Crystal Gold All-Over Jammer. For those who liked a more toned down style in their swimwear, the Crystal Gold Splice Jammer is probably more of their style.

Want More?

Stay tuned to our blog for the latest releases from Funky Trunks and other top swimwear brands. We here at swimmer.com.au spend time searching for the best swimwear, so you swimmers can spend more time swimming and less time searching for athletic swimwear.

Taste the Honey with Funkita & Funky Trunks

BlogBanner1

We are excited about all of Way Funky’s new products released this summer here at Swimmer, but we found their line of swimwear that features a honeycomb design to be especially inspiring. Way Funky took nature’s honeycomb design then applied it to their men's (Funky Trunks) & women's (Funkita) swimwear to create a completely unique look that channels the forces of Mother Nature or perhaps just the forces of bumble bees. Some members of the staff were afraid of bees, so we couldn’t mention that last part too loud.

Anyway, the fun hexagonal shapes of honeycombs create intricate pattern that are super fun, but Way Funky put their own spin on the natural design by offering the print in lots of different colours. What is even better yet is that with Way Funky’s signature chlorine-resistant material, Way Funky swimwear holds the bright colours through many visits to the pool. As a bonus these designs are available for all ages and genders, so no one is left out of this super cool print from Way Funky. If you want to be THAT parent, you can make everyone wear matching swimwear to the next family vacation - just remember you didn’t hear the idea from us.

The Kevlar coating print has a myriad of blue hexagons outlined by white that combines the aerial power of bees with the aquatic colours of the water. For the ladies you can get the Kevlar Coating Womens One Piece & Kevlar Coating Girls One Piece or the Kevlar Coating Womens Sports Bikini & Kevlar Coating Girls Sports Bikini, so you can sport this look in the one piece or bikini style. For the men you can get Way Funky’s signature style of trunk with Kevlar Coating Mens Trunks, Kevlar Coating Boys Trunks & Kevlar Coating Toddlers Boys Trunks. This fun look is perfect for swimmers who like to blend into the cool blues of the water.

The other option is the Golden Honeycomb print that has green, yellow and white hexagons outlined by thin midnight black lines. We’re not sure if this print reminds us more of a honeycomb or a snake slivering through the grass. Again you can get this print in the one piece or two piece styles; check it out at the Golden Honeycomb Womens One Piece & Golden Honeycomb Girls One Piece or the Golden Honeycomb Womens Sports Bikini & Golden Honeycomb Girls Sports Bikini. Both styles are suitable for athletic swimming, because both cuts provide plenty of coverage and support. Dudes, don’t worry, you aren’t left out of this green and gold style. We also have the Golden Honeycomb Mens Trunks, Golden Honeycomb Boys Trunks & Golden Honeycomb Toddler Boys trunks that are great for everything from swim lessons to swim meets.

Last up we have Hexel Boom print that features red, white and blue hexagons outlined by a neon blue to create an explosive look for the water. We love how the neon plays with the red, white and blue to create an eye popping look. For the ladies, you can get the Hexel Boom Womens One Piece & Hexel Boom Girls One Piece. For all the fellas out there make sure to check out the Hexel Boom Mens Trunks & Hexel Boom Boys Trunks.
