Funkita Paintball 2014

Mums, dads, daughters and sons, get ready to rumble. Did mum make you go to bed early last night? Did your son leave his dirty socks in the laundry again? Did dad not take the garbage out? Well time to get some of the aggression out with a playful and fun Paintball Battle! Okay, okay, maybe you don't get to actually shoot paintballs at each other, but you can wear matching swimwear that is almost as cool, right kids!?

For Dad

For dad we offer the Paintball Mens Trunks with a paintball-splashed print that looks totally rad. I mean really, your kid is going to think you’re the coolest if you wear these to the pool. Unless your kids are teenagers, in which case they won't think you're cool again probably for another decade, sorry about that. With Funky Trunks signature cut you'll feel extra-comfortable with this athletic cut that is great for swimming laps.

For Mum

Mums get two options in the paintball line, because let's face it, mums are the best. Mum can either choose between the Paintballs Womens One Piece or the Paintballs Womens Sports Bikini. Both come in the delightfully colourful paintball prints that looks as if a rainbow threw up all over you but in a good way. Great for ladies who love embracing all colours of the rainbow!

For Sisters and Daughters

Young ladies, do we have fun and fashionable style for you. The Paintballs Girls Sports Bikini offers a modern and abstract design of a multitude of colours that is perfect for girls with a sharp intellect and good taste in style. The sports bikini cut makes it so you can have the style of the bikini, but still do your cannon balls without worrying about the swimwear coming loose.

For the very little ladies, we have the Paintballs Toddlers Girls One Piece. This too cute version of the Paintballs prints would go great with pig tails and smiles. The comfortable straps are perfect for splishing and splashing all day in the pool.

For Brothers and Sons

For the young boys, check out the totally cool Paintballs Boys Trunks. The design on these trunks looks like you just ran across a paintball battlefield! So get your game face on, because it time to take all your combat skills to the pool to the epic battle to the end!

Little dudes, you are going to totally dig the Paintballs Toddler Boys Trunks. Colourful, cosy and fun, great for splashing and smiling all day in the beach sun.

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.

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.

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

2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil & Funky Trunks World Cup Swim Caps

funky-trunks-caps

For all our swimmers out there who have a passion for football, you are going to love the new line of swim caps from Funky Trunks. Even though all of us can’t be in Brazil to see the world’s best football teams face off, we still can show support for our favourite teams when in the pool. The only downside is you may catch a hard time from fellow swim mates if your team doesn’t do so well in Brazil in just under a couple of months.

Each cap features a soccer ball design to show you have football on the brain. They also have the nation’s name and colours along with a prominent Funky Trunks logo. And as usual, Funky Trunks caps are made with 100% silicone for a snug and long-lasting fit that will last you a long time after the 2014 FIFA World Cup is over.

Rio 14

If you aren’t a football fan, but enjoy watching the world cup, the Rio 14 cap is the perfect swim cap for you. The Rio 14 swim cap shows all of the team’s flags, so you don’t really have loyalty to any single team. Although if you are looking for a team, us Aussies would appreciate your support!

Les Blues

Even though France has only won the World Cup once, I guess they are still a good team. Right? Although you may have questionable taste in football, this red, white and blue Les Blues cap will at least amp up your taste in style in the water.

Canarinho

Brazil is good at a lot of different things, but they are pretty much a nation of awesome soccer players. Brazil is also hosting the 2014 World Cup, so why not show your support for the host nation by wearing the Canarinho swim cap?

Three Lions

The odds are not really looking good for England in the World Cup, but if you want to wear your Three Lions swim cap loud and proud we can respect that. Besides, the red and white colors of the Three Lions swim cap matches most swimwear.

Go Aussie

Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! We may be bias, but the Go Aussie swim cap and football team are the best! The Go Aussie is our top choice of the Funky Trunks World Cup swim cap line.

Die Adler

Die Adler, or the Eagle, swim cap is great swim cap for all those Germany fans out there.  We think the colours would look nice on you too.

La Furia

La Furia is a nice swim cap and all, there is just one caveat. The La Furia team is in the same groups as the Aussies, so we don’t know if we can actually endorse this cap. Sorry!

Buzz through the pool with Funkita & Funky Trunks

BlogBanner3

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!

How to Keep Your Competitive Edge Razor Sharp

Funky Razor Blast Swimwear

Swimming is one of the few sports where you only get one shot at your goal. There are no timeouts, substitutes or half times. It is just you, your head, the water and your swimwear. We at swimmer.com.au believe that what you wear in the pool can help make or break athletes. Not that a certain type of swimwear will necessarily make anyone swim faster, but how the swimwear makes the swimmer feel while in a heat can be a game changer.

Australian swimmer Elka Graham said, “In training everyone focuses on 90% physical and 10% mental, but in races its 90% mental because there’s very little that separates us physically at the elite level.” We definitely agree with Ms. Graham’s sentiment, but we think this extends to almost all levels of athletic swimming. If a swimmer isn’t right in the head during a meet, most of the time they are going to have difficulty performing.

Any boost, including swimwear that makes you feel confident, can be used to your advantage when it comes the time to compete against fellow swimmers. One line from Funky Trunks and Funkita we felt channelled the good attitude swimmers need when hitting the pool was the Razor Blast print. The “Razor” in the name and the sharp edges on the print reminded us of the razor thin adjustment swimmers have to make to adjust their techniques. Not to mention the action of “shaving” off seconds from your time by working hard.

The Razor Blast print features blue, black and indigo stripes zigzagging horizontally across the print. On top of looking good with a motivational name, the Razor Blast swimwear is designed for athletic swimmers by the team at Funky Trunks. The design team at Funky Trunks are swimmer themselves, so historically they’ve done a great job at putting out top notch fitness and athletic swimwear. The print is available for all genders and ages, so check it out by following the links below.
