8 Quotes about Rebellion and Rebellious Swimwear to inspire you in the Pool

Funky Trunks

Rebellion isn’t just about acting naughty. Rather, rebellion is about defying the status quo to achieve something better. In the pool we can use rebellion to push our limitation to a higher standard, and that is why we loved the new rebellion-inspired swimwear line from Funky Trunks and Funkita.

These prints are decorated with images of rebellion - placards and metal fences. They add in a little jazz to the style by making everything a pleasant hue, and we’ve got to say rebellion never looked so good. The placards are filled with silly protests of swimmers that’ll get you laughing.  For the ladies this print is available in the Funkita Occupy the Lane Womens One Piece Swimsuit, the Funkita Pool Power Womens One Piece Swimsuit, the Funkita Occupy the Lane Girls One Piece Swimsuit and the Funkita Pool Power Girls One Piece Swimsuit. For the dudes, we’ve got the Funky Trunks Pool Power Mens Trunks and the Funky Trunks Pool Power Boys Trunks.

Alright enough of all that, here are your quotes:

1. Every act of rebellion expresses a nostalgia for innocence and an appeal to the essence of being.

-Albert Camus

2. It doesn't take a majority to make a rebellion; it takes only a few determined leaders and a sound cause.

-H. L. Mencken

3. “Humanity has advanced, when it has advanced, not because it has been sober, responsible, and cautious, but because it has been playful, rebellious, and immature.”

- Tom Robbins

4. “Just because something bears the aspect of the inevitable one should not, therefore, go along willingly with it.”

- Philip K. Dick

5. “Originality is the best form of rebellion.”

- Mike Sasso

6. “Rebellion is the only thing that keeps you alive!”

- Marianne Faithfull

7. “A little rebellion now and then is a good thing.”

- Thomas Jefferson

8. “Education is the most effective form of rebellion.”

- Thorin

8 Reasons that We Love Funky Trunks and Funkita Swimwear

Sea Sculptures

At swimmer.com.au we offer nothing but the best when it comes to selecting swimwear brands. For every swimwear brand, we have a story as to exactly why we decided to feature their swimwear on our website, so that you, our customers, could get the best swimwear out there. The following is sort of our love letter towards Funky for all the reason their swimwear totally rocks for swimmers. So check it out:

  1. They make swimwear for the whole family.
    No matter what your age or size, Funky Trunks and Funkita swimwear have something for all swimmers to enjoy. Often you can even find prints for both genders like we see in the Funky Trunks Sea Sculptures Mens Trunks, the Funky Trunk Sea Sculptures Men Jammers and the Funkita Sea Sculptures Womens One Piece Swimsuit. The blue, purple, black and white squiggly designs of this print create a stunning abstract design that really can work for guys and gals, because it is just really just that cool.
  2. When it comes to quality, they never skimp.
    Swimwear that is actually built for athletic and fitness swimmers has three main qualities: longevity, comfort and style. Funky consistently offers all three of these qualities in all of their swimwear, and that is why we offer their swimwear here at swimmer.com.au year after year.
  3. Their swimwear is designed for optimal comfort.
    The brand originated with some swimmers wanting to create mens athletic swimwear that was more comfortable. They felt the almost always too tight style of briefs was not designed to create maximum comfort for swimmers. Keeping to the guidelines of trying to make swimwear drag-resistant and sleek enough for athletic swimmers, Funky optimized the cuts to offer just a little more comfort for males. They’ve carried on with this principle of comfort when designing all of their swimwear.
  4. C-Finity fabric is the bomb.
    C-Finity fabric holds its shape and colour even after tons of hours in the pool. As fitness and athletic swimwear we know all about faded drooping swimwear, so when we find swimwear that actually sticks to its original quality for a long time it is exciting. The C-Finity fabric definitely gets the swimmer.com.au stamp of approval.
  5. Their prints are always fresh and unique.
    Each year Funky surprises us with versatile and fun designs that really sets them apart from other swimwear brands. This year we especially liked the colourful and squiggly design of the Funkita Colour Eclipse Womens One Piece Swimsuit.
  6. Funky swimwear is the preferred brand of Australian Olympic Champion Diver Matthew Mitcham.  We are huge Matthew Mitcham fans here at swimmer.com.au, so the fact that Funky Trunks sponsors the diver makes us bigger fans of the swimwear company.
  7. They are an Australia based company!
    The design and distribution of Funky swimwear is based out of Australia. To us at swimmer.com.au that makes it a local business.
  8. The brand has a sense of humor.
    Funky make take their design process seriously, but when describing their prints they keep things light hearted. Here is one of our favourite descriptions from their latest catalogue:“This print was developed by MIT engineers based on a series of binary codes that measures the earth’s rotation around the sun. Simply count the number of curves visible on the print, multiple by the square root of each stitch that you can see and you’ll have a tide chart for next week. Happy days!”

This describes the print of the Funky Green Gateway Womens One Piece Swimsuit, the Funky Trunks Green Gateway Mens Trunks and the Funky Trunks Green Gateway Mens Jammers.

Seashells Funkita Womens and Girls

"Under the sea, under the sea, life is so much better down where it's wetter, take it from me."

So you were either singing along or you think we've gone completely insane! As a swimmer, the Disney Movie the Little Mermaid always had a special place in my heart. Although I have to say I always thought Ariel was bonkers for wanting to come to dry land. Anyways, Funkita just released a new line of sea-themed girls and womens swimwear for us to all enjoy.

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.

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


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.
