This little Daddy and Son story is very special to me. 
My partner, Leon's dad, has been a surfer since he was 6 years old. 
The ocean for him is kind of a religion and it’s one of the reasons we’re back here in sunny Australia. When we lived in Stockholm / Sweden he even surfed out in the 1 degree icy cold water for a surf in the snow. That’s how much he loves it. Now he’d like to pass on his passion to Mr L, and while I as a mum is a bit worried, I have to stay strong as it would be fun for Mr L to learn even if I’m scared of sharks and the powerful waves.

It was just such a good feeling to watch Leon having fun on his board and connecting with his daddy in this way. Running back and forward in the water and catching the waves. 
His dad of course is a great teacher showed him on land and when in the water on a local quiet beach. Then we took off too Bondi Beach to watch some great surfers and skaters!

And what not better to capture the two: in a little father and son photo story dressed up in the ethically manufactured Bali based brand Echo lane! These shirts are so cute and yes, they make them for sons and daddies!!! Twinning is winning in such lovingly made pieces. Leon also got to test out one of Echo lane's really cute hooded pocket tee's.

Echo lane is a true small business and the team in the production is tiny: which is how you know that with every piece purchased, you are supporting a dream and two families. It is pretty incredible to know the first name of the people who created the pieces you wear, as it is not of the most common knowledge we have in this day and age.  
Echo lane is created and owned by Australian FIFO mum Kat, who is currently living in Bali. She designs the pieces there and the clothes are made by Yono from his home in Denpasar and when there is a large order, his wife and brother also help out.
You will need to be quick in pre ordering her shirts, for they sell out very quickly. I first ordered a really cool green one but I was too late, they already sold out the fabric. But I was lucky to get a hold of these two cool blue crab shirts with an aboriginal inspired print.
The shirts are made from an amazing soft cotton fabric with eco-friendly coconut shell buttons.

I hope you enjoy this little surf adventure with Echo lane!
All the best
