“It’s time to break the chains and spread your wings, we’re flying across the surface with a colour palette that screams. Everything we could dream of churned into a collection and cast off with love in every direction.” That’s what Funkita have to say about their upcoming Fly Free 2018 summer range. It’s also how we feel about casting off our previous swimwear brand and spreading our wings with this exciting Australian leading chlorine resistant swimwear. We are ready to fly free and so will you, my pretties! Take a look at the 2018 Speed Stroke range, now in stock.


Funky Trunks Have Balls

buy funky trunks wicklow ireland the sports roomEverything about this brand is funky, even their swim tags. “Funky Trunks is the Aussie label for guys to make a statement when the pants come down!” You might not normally pay too much attention to tags, but you’ll read these!

Some sound advice for the lads: “Your Funky Trunks should be positioned low and tight around your hips. Never allow your Funky Trunks to sit too high as too much altitude above the hips may lead to a loss of consciousness. Once around the hips, Funky Trunks should sit snug around the crutch. To create a snug fit, stretch the leg of your Funky Trunks down around your thigh, place hand on family jewels and pull up while paying your respects to the late King of Pop.”


Warning! Do not operate heavy machinery while wearing Funky Trunks

But feel free to swim your hearts out whether you’re a squad swimmer or for leisurely laps down the pool. Choose from different styles for men and boys in a variety of unique prints and patterns. Swimming caps are also available.
