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 men 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.

Taste the Honey with Funkita & Funky Trunks


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.

Flower Power from Funkita


Flowers are always really beautiful, but Funkita has made flowers really cool too with their groovy new athletic swimwear line just released here at Swimmer. Wearing these funky prints, you’ll have a hard time containing yourself from throwing up a peace sign every time you hit the water. Using wild designs and crazy bright colours, Funkita sheds a whole new light on the classic (and sometimes BORING) floral design.

First up, let’s talk about the very electric look of the Petals of Paris that you can see at Petals of Paris Women's One Piece & Petals of Paris Girls One Piece and the Petals of Paris Womens Sports Bikini & Petals of Paris Girls Sports Bikini.  These very neon prints feature shades of hot pink, midnight black, and white to create an eye popping print that really stands out in the water. The colours enhance the crazy look of the pinwheel flower designs. Black trimming and straps compliment the midnight black of the design. The Petals of Paris swimwear design is great for women and girls who don’t mind standing out from the crowd by showing off their own unique style.

The alternative floral design available can be seen at the Chelsea Flower Women's One Piece, Chelsea Flower Girls One Piece & Chelsea Flower Toddlers Girls One Piece, the Chelsea Flower Girls Sports Bikini and the Chelsea Flower Toddler Girls Tankini. The print of the Chelsea Flower fitness swimwear features a wide variety of neon colours including pink, green, purple, blue and yellow. Thin purple straps make for a cute addition to the look that also allows you to swim in comfort. The fun loving nature of the Chelsea Flower print makes it perfect for long days at the beach or hard working hours at swim practice.

To top off any either of these styles check out the Chelsea Flower Silicone Swim Cap from Funkita. This swim cap features a large bouquet of neon flowers on a very hot pink background. In small block letters the Funkita logo is printed in purple letters. This bright coloured swim cap can match a variety of other swimwear styles as well!

Feathered Fun with Funkita Swimwear


From the moment we immerse ourselves into the water, the freedom and weightlessness the water offers can only be compared to flight. With each stroke we manoeuvre our bodies purposefully to soar through the water at top speed, just like a bird flying through the sky.  Funkita wants to help you channel your inner bird with their new line of bird themed athletic swimwear that is available right here at Swimmer. The bird is the perfect animal to lift our spirits to do our best every time we hit the pool. In this line from Funkita swimwear, the peacock, macaw and flamingo all make appearances to offer inspiration on top of offering brilliant tropical colours.

First off, we wanted to introduce the absolutely stunning peacock inspired print from Funkita. The Peacock Paradise Womens One Piece, Peacock Paradise Girls One Piece & Peacock Paradise Toddlers Girls One Piece features a collage of millions of overlapping peacock feathers that really shows of the green, pinks and blues of these stunning critters. The trimming and straps are made with the same peacock feather design, so you get the feathered look on every single piece of this one piece. This print is also available in a sports bikini cut that you can see at the Peacock Paradise Womens Sports Bikini & Peacock Paradise Girls Sports Bikini.

Next up, we’re introducing our favourite colourful friend, the macaw. In the Macaw Magic Girls One Piece, we step into a neon tropical forest that is filled with birds, butterflies and flowers on a midnight black background. With Funkita's signature chlorine-resistant material, this one piece will hold its colour- even with heavy use. This crazy look is perfect for girls who like a quirkier style to add some fun to their time in the water.

Last but not least, the Flamingo makes a star appearance in the new Funkita swimwear line of 2014. This pink bird has always been one of our favourites, so we were super excited to see a variety of prints featuring the flamingo!  For a very hot pink look in addition to the pink bird, check out the Flaming Go Go’s Womens One Piece, Flaming Go Go's Girls One Piece & Flaming Go Go's Toddler Girls One Piece. This hot pink fitness swimwear is also available in a sports bikini that you can see at Flamingo Go Gos Womens Sports Bikini & Flaming Go Go's Girls Sports Bikini. Also, it is available in a tankini cut that can be found at Flaming Go Gos Toddler Tankini.

For a more toned down version of the pink flaming you are going to love this next print from Funkita swimwear. The print of the Go Flamingo Womens One Piece, Go Flamingo Girls One Piece and Go Flamingo Toddlers Girls One Piece features pink flamingos on a teal background. Baby pink straps compliment the baby pink of the flamingos. We loved the soft pastel tones of this swimwear to counter the very popular neon themes that seem to be all the rage in the fashion world right now. The Go Flamingo One Piece is perfect for ladies who don’t mind marching, or stroking, to the beat of their own drum.

To match any of the above fitness swimwear Funkita the Flamingo Go Gos Silicone Swim Cap makes an excellent accessory. This cap features two baby pink flamingos on a hot pink background. Below the flamingos the Funkita brand is printed in bold, white letters. Match this hot pink cap to any piece of swimwear to add a blast of pink colour, because there can’t be enough pink in this world!



Poolside Politics


Funky Trunks features George W. Bush on Swimwear: Here are 10 of Bush’s Silliest Quotes to Get You Stoked!

Whether you were a fan of former U.S. President George W. Bush or not, you got to admit the man had propensity to stumble on his words in public. He was not the most eloquent of world leaders, and the results were sometimes funny.

In his honour, Funkita and Funky Trunks feature a caricature of a big, bobbly head version of Bush on the Heads of State Mens Trunks & Heads of State Boys Trunks, the Heads of State Womens One Piece & Heads of State Girls One Piece, the Baby Come On Mens Trunks & Baby Come On Boys Trunks and the Baby Come On Womens One Piece & Baby Come On Girls One Pieces. You can also check out some additional political commentary from Funky Trunks in swimwear form in the Start the Fire Mens Trunks & Start the Fire Boys Trunks.

We tried to keep these quotes free of partisanship, but obviously given his position that was hard to do. These quotes do not necessarily reflect any political view, but are just up here to give everyone a good chuckle at poor ol’ Bush’s expense. Without further ado here are ten of Bush’s silliest quotes (courtesy of about.com) -

"They misunderestimated me." -- Bentonville, Ark., Nov. 6, 2000

"Goodbye from the world's biggest polluter." -- in parting words to world leaders at his final G-8 Summit, punching the air and grinning widely as those present looked on in shock, Rusutsu, Japan, July 10, 2008

"I'll be long gone before some smart person ever figures out what happened inside this Oval Office." -- Washington, D.C., May 12, 2008

"Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?" -- Florence, South Carolina, Jan. 11, 2000

"If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator." -- Washington, D.C., Dec. 19, 2000

"I'm the decider, and I decide what is best." -- Washington, D.C. April 18, 2006

"You teach a child to read, and he or her will be able to pass a literacy test." - Townsend, Tenn., Feb. 21, 2001

"This foreign policy stuff is a little frustrating." -- as quoted by the New York Daily News, April 23, 2002

"I am here to make an announcement that this Thursday, ticket counters and airplanes will fly out of Ronald Reagan Airport." -- Washington, D.C., Oct. 3, 2001

"For every fatal shooting, there were roughly three non-fatal shootings. And, folks, this is unacceptable in America. It's just unacceptable. And we're going to do something about it." -- Philadelphia, Penn., May 14, 2001


Buzz through the pool with Funkita & Funky Trunks


Way Funky have released a fantastic line of bumble bee themed swimwear that has everyone at Swimmer abuzz with excitement. Spoiler alert: the toddlers swimwear actually has tiny little bumble bee wings sprouting from the sides! We are excited to see the yellow and black stripes of a bumble bee finally getting the attention they deserve in Way Funky’s new line of athletic swimwear. Let us introduce you to the highlights of this new swimwear line from Way Funky swimwear.

Our absolute favourite pieces from this line are the Bumble Bee Toddler Girls One Piece and the Bumble Bee Toddler Boys Trunks. These two pieces of swimwear feature the neon yellow and midnight black pattern of the bumble bee in Funky’s chlorine-resistant material, so the stripes will hold their true colour even after many hours spent in the pool. What really puts the icing on the cake for these pieces of toddler swimwear are the miniature black wings that sprout out from the side of the swimsuit. These wings add a little touch of fun to pool time that will really get kids excited about swimming. If you are looking to train the next Michael Phelps, the Bumble Bee toddlers swimwear is probably a good place to start!

Next up we have the simple bumble bee pattern (without the cute little wings) available for all the guys. Check out the loud style of the Bumble Bee Men's Trunks & Bumble Bee Boys Trunks. The athletic trunks have the yellow and black horizontal stripes on Funky Trunk’s famous brief cut. For those who want to tone down the bumble bee look a little, check out the Bumble Bee Jammers. The Bumble Bee Jammers feature only a small panel of the black and yellow design on each side.

To top all of these looks off, the Bumble Bee Silicone Swim Cap makes for a great swimwear accessory.  This buzzing cap features the insect head of a bumble bee along with the yellow and black stripes. Also, it has the signature “Funky Trunkzzz” logo printed in bold, white text.

Happy swimming!
