Hang Loose was founded in 1982 by the Brazilian surfer Alfio Lagnado, in the beginning designing and producing boardshorts for surfers.
In 1986, in a daring action, the company held the “Hang Loose Pro Contest”, in Florianópolis, a stage of the ASP world tour, which, in addition to leveraging the brand, was a milestone in the Brazilian Surf History. This surf contest catapulted Brazilian surfing into the world context of professional surfing, as well as the Hang Loose brand that started to be exposed and promoted as a surfing brand all over the world.
Two years later, Hang Loose sponsored and promoted the participation of the famous professionals’ surfers Fabio Gouveia and Flávio "Teco" Padaratz in the ASP Worl Tour. The performance of these two surfers on the ASP World Tour, for nearly a decade, marked the importance and relevance of Brazilian surfers at the professional world ranking.
