Ocean & Earth are one of surfing’s heritage brands. They never grew as big as Rip Curl and Billabong but the Aussie company did create generations of great surfing products. Most surfers have probably owned an Ocean & Earth legrope (leash) at some point in their life. O&E have also manufactured bodyboards, surfboard bags, deck grip and more. They continue to innovate, producing excellent high-performance leashes (check out the video for the ONE-XT below).
