Ocean Pacific Apparel Corp produces primarily surf related apparel, swimwear,
footwear and accessories. Ocean Pacific was started by John Smith
in the 1960s as a surfboard brand. Smith designed the original trademark
and label for his surfboards which he sold out of his shop North County
Ding Repair. Later, Fred Ryan purchased North County Ding Repair from John
Smith along with the Ocean Pacific surfboard label. The Ocean Pacific
label was later sold to Don Hansen of Hansen Surf Shop. In 1972,
Jim Jenks of San Diego wanted to create clothing
that met the demands of surfers in and out of the surf. He received the
name from his then employer Don Hansen and the Ocean Pacific
apparel line was created. Jenks' idea for clothing under the
Ocean Pacific label quickly became popular with the surf culture with its
instantly recognizable "OP" logo.
Warnaco acquired Ocean Pacific in 2003 and sold it to current owner Iconix
Brand Group in 2006.
