Have you got Animal Instincts? In 1987, two surfers, tired of losing their watches to the waves, designed an innovative solution: the hook and loop strap. Rapidly adopted by the action sport community, the watch went on to launch the Animal brand. Thirty years later, Animal has become the premier UK action sports lifestyle brand. Defined by the sports at its core -surfing, snowboarding and mountain biking- Animal continues to evolve, bringing the thrill of the ride to alternative environments, from Kitesurfing and wakeboarding to BMX and skateboarding. Animal is proud to support its own pro team of riders and advocates, keeping the ride at the heart of everything they do. For the past three decades, Animal has operated a programme of 'rider-refined' innovation, using the pro team to test and tweak products for real rider performance. The Animal range has grown to include action sports lifestyle clothing, wetsuits, technical outerwear, footwear, watches, luggage and accessories.
