PELAGIC GEAR was founded as a company devoted to those that live, dream, and stand by the ocean lifestyle. Born in Newport Beach, California (circa 2001), PELAGIC is deeply rooted in surf, fish, and dive culture; it is driven by an undying thirst to provide the worldwide public with a name brand that identifies themselves with a single love for the ocean. Combining casual lifestyle wear and high performance apparel, with headwear, footwear, gloves, and high end polarized optics, PELAGIC has it all.

As a leader in the sport fishing industry for well over a decade and counting, PELAGIC continues to stay on the forefront of innovation and cutting-edge design in clothing and technical products. In producing a large line of board and technical fishing shorts, UV sun-protection shirts, and performance polarized optics, PELAGIC products give the modern waterman the best advantage possible when it counts the most.

PELAGIC is a brand that provides an avenue to share a passion for the ocean lifestyle; whether you’ve fished once in your life or make your career on the water; whether on the beach or thousands of miles from the nearest sea, PELAGIC products connect to a laidback culture and to a worldwide community of individuals that share the same passion for the ocean. You can count on PELAGIC GEAR to continue to be a driving force in the evolving sector of lifestyle apparel for fish, dive, boating, and surf year after year.
