The Surf Wyoming® story began with a social cause in early 1998. A group of Wyoming friends attending MSU in Bozeman joined a group of passionate river sport enthusiasts to form the “Mountain Surf” chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, covering the waters in and around the Northern Rockies and Surfrider Foundation’s first inland chapter.
As avid fly fishermen, paddlers, river surfers, and winter sport junkies, this group’s initial projects included gathering for weekend events to clean the banks of the Gallatin and Yellowstone Rivers, usually concluding with BBQs and beers.
In an effort to help raise money for this small and atypical Surfrider chapter, the group began printing a single t-shirt for sale and sold it to friends at bars in the winter while skiing and snowboarding in Jackson and Big Sky, and in the summer while fishing, paddling and surfing the Snake River near Jackson. That one shirt was a tip of the hat to Wyoming as it featured a bucking horse and rider holding a paddle. The brown and gold shirt included the message, “Paddlers for Clean Water”.
Proudly we’re bringing it back by popular demand and for a limited time.

The technical jargon you also need to know and sizing details above to ensure you get the best fit:
Surf Wyoming tees are made with a beautiful combed cotton/poly jersey, a 60/40 blend; preshrunk and fitted nicely against the body [not that boxy, heavy, scratchy stuff they sell at truck stops – nothing against truck stops, mind you].
And fellas, our tees make you look and feel like a million bucks – ridiculously soft and comfortable with a broken-in feel. They’ll quickly become your go-to favorite that you can't wait to pull over your head!
