About Finisterre

Born from the needs of British cold water surfers, Finisterre builds the best and most sustainable product for those that share their love of the sea.

“Finisterre was founded in 2003 on three commitments: to product, environment and people. For these past 15 years, these commitments have been at the heart of every decision and our journey has been one of innovation to achieve sustainability, whilst continually striving to minimise the impact of both our business and product. Achieving B Corp status is a big moment for Finisterre: affirmation of what we have been working hard at since founding, and giving us more to strive for in the future.” Finisterre founder Tom Kay.
