kauskaki is so pretty that it can make you new friends before or after your surf session.
Sometimes will even win you a wet hug.


► You want a kauskaki surfsock as a present but do not have much of an idea about that special someone's board dimensions. Is it a shortboard, a longboard or anything in-between?
► You would like to let that special someone make their own personalized design based on our aesthetics and fabric collection
► You really need to buy a special present for a special someone but you're a bit late for the occasion (birthday, Xmas, anniversary, surftrip etc) and don't want to go empty handed
► You have a retail shop that wishes to offer its customers bespoke surfsocks but needs something physical in store for instant gratification

This "personalized surfsock" gift card comes in a miniature surfsock pouch aka the kauskaki minion; a 27cm mini version of a surfsock that is a multi purpose item which conveniently acts as:
► a soft case for you sunglasses or vision spectacles
► a wallet
► a pouch to hold your surf trinkets like wax, fin screws/key, cheeky snack etc

Every day you use it, you can be just a tiny bit closer to the ocean. And you help us in our zero waste mission, since our minions are made from their bigger brothers' offcuts. 

Our surfboard socks are not just a pretty face. They are made with durable fabrics and offer light protection from all those things your precious toy does not want to put up with. And our little zero-waste heroes, the minions, will treat your sunglasses in the same way. You can even use them to clean the lenses.


// You order //

You order and prepay the gift card for a special someone on a special occasion.

► You can choose surfboard length, surfsock accessories and speedy shipping for the minion.
► Each minion is a pretty unique combination of colours & fabrics. Send us a message stating your preference from the minion styles shown on the listing photos (#1-12). You can also let us choose a random one for you.
► Optional service - this one is on the house: Send us a message alongside your order if you want something special printed on the surfboard shaped gift card note (name, occasion, specific note or wish, anything goes really).

// We Deliver. Twice. //

We deliver the gift card inside the kauskaki minion to your designated address.

Anytime within 30 days from your order, the recipient of your present can follow the instructions on the gift card to order the kauskaki design of their choice for their lucky surfboard. They can share a brief, we will prepare and propose three to six mock-ups and after a couple of finetuning rounds, we will land on the final design that will be one of a kind, literally.

Whilst they wait for it to be tailormade and shipped, they can enjoy their kauskaki minion.

And we all live happily ever after.


Got Qs? Here is a handy detailed guide including Frequently Asked Questions about the minions, aka the perfect gift


IF YOU HAVE JUST FALLEN IN LOVE WITH THE MINION pouch, you can simply buy it on its own and keep it all to yourself.
You can also check out the standard gift card minion that can be redeemed for any design available in our current collection. See respective listings in the Gift Card Section


Given the nature of your order, after we have kicked off the creation process, we will be unable to accept any cancellation. We are however very flexible in changing the design until the point we have started production, fabric cutting in particular.

Shipping from Greece

We deliver our sufsocks for free (standard parcel service with tracking number and signature via the Hellenic Post Office aka ELTA) wherever you are. Yes, worldwide free shipping! When shipping to Europe, it typically takes 3-7 working days according to the post office, but it always depends on local post service at the destination country. We have had parcels sent to certain EU countries that took up to two weeks. For further away, e.g. Indonesia, USA etc, delivery times can reach or exceed 10 working days (2 weeks). For a subsidised competitive fee, you can upgrade to speedier delivery at checkout*. We use FEDEX international courier. That means you get advance status notifications and EU or US delivery times as short as 1-3 business days. Please do not forget to share your phone number with us for the courier to reach you.

In all cases, including standard post, you will always be able to track your kauskaki's whereabouts after it leaves its birthplace (Note: Often and for reasons beyond our capacity to comprehend, the parcel scanning stops or stalls after the flight departure from Athens until your doorstep. This is sadly outside our control, and purely post office bad practice)


Please always check the dispatch times on each listing, as they differ across our product categories.

kauskaki surfboard socks are tailor-made just for you, in fact, your board. Please allow for approximately 1-2 weeks for design adjustments, production and dispatch, after we have received your board details. Let us know if you are in a hurry to leave for your upcoming surftrip or if you are ordering for a present - we will try our very best to prioritise your order.

*Please note that upgrading to speedy shipping, that does not shorten the time we need to make and dispatch your item, only the shipping method, i.e. delivery time.

Custom, bespoke or 'Build Your Own' surfboard socks tend to take longer and depend on how quickly we land on the final design following the initial brief. After we have the green light, we typically dispatch in 1-2 weeks.

Returns and exchange details

Surfsock: If you do not like your bespoke kauskaki, you are welcome to ship it back within 30 days from purchase and we will offer 'shop credit' which means we will make and ship you another one that meets your expectations (unfortunately free worldwide shipping policy does not apply for returns and second delivery). We will not be able to refund you unless exceptional circumstances apply. We would really appreciate if you told us what went wrong.

If your kauskaki does not fit your board perfectly (as per dimensions provided) or has any manufacturing fault, then please send us pictures within 30 days from purchase and we will replace it with the same or similar design - subject to fabric availability. In this case, shipping is on us.

Our Immortality Promise is basically a Lifetime Fit and No Waste Promise (project under construction): kauskaki sisters hate waste as much as they hate ill-fitting surfsocks. Join the discussion on our SURF SWAPSIES facebook group where you can sell your old kauskaki surfsock and get a discount from your new one when your board dimensions change. You can also send your surfsock back to our studio for repair / recycling / retailoring / exchange. Depending on its condition we will be able to recommend the best approach for an everlasting awesome surfsock, minimizing the use of fabrics. Get in touch for more.

If your chosen dress does not suit you, please return (at your own cost) and we can ship another one. Special custom order is recommended for XS, L or XL.

In the highly unlikely event of something going wrong, we always strive to serve you and ensure you meet your new kauskaki item on time and in full. However, we cannot assume full responsibility for any loss or damage caused by the various post offices handling the parcel when that exceeds the shipper's default insurance policy.

We are also unable to absorb the cost for customs clearance which is particularly applicable to shipments into the US. All our items ship from Athens, Greece (part of the EU) so depending on your country, you may be responsible for paying some kind of import tax, duty, handling fee etc. Please google your country's policy if you are concerned about unexpected fees. We cannot be held responsible for items abandoned at customs due to fees. By the way, shame on you leaving your kauskaki on its own! That means we will not be able to send you a replacement item.

If you wish to know more about insurance options available from Hellenic Post, please visit and let us know if you have special requirements or any concerns. FEDEX courier - which is our preferred speedy shipping partner - will insure up to $100 of your order's value by default.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalised orders

Our favourite thing. Give us a brief, as vague or as specific as you wish and we will turn it into a set of six design proposals. You tweak, mix and swap and we prepare a final mock-up. Once agreed upon, we proceed to making one unique surfboard sock for you that fits your board like a perfect hug.

Care instructions

Our surfboard socks are machine washable at 30'C / 86'F. They like to take a bath alone though. Colours may fade over time if exposed to the sun for long periods or frequently washed with mean detergents. Do not bleach or iron your surfboard sock, unless you understand the consequences of such behaviour.

Our playsuits come with a care label to remind you of how to best treat them. They are machine washable at 30'C / 86'F, gentle cycle. Handle with care. Colours may fade over time. Hang to dry. Do not bleach, iron or tumble dry. If in doubt, play it safe or get in touch.

Sizing details

All our surfboard socks are made to order and to measure. So we will need your board details. That includes dimensions, shaper and model. If you have a link to the shaper's website that's the easiest way to share this info with us. If not, or if the board is custom-made, then a picture against the wall with no angle, will do the trick. We pride ourselves in offering the perfect fit and price differently for each foot in length so it is imperative that - as a minimum - you know the length of your board and the nose shape.

Our playsuits are designed for an absolutely relaxed fit. Our beachwear comes in one size and the winter outfits in Small and Medium. The model wears Small and her measurements are stated in the listing description.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Our packaging is just enough to keep the product safe whilst in transit with the post. Our packaging and tags are made (often by us and one by one) from reused and/or recycled material. We do not use unnecessary plastic and when we have to use some it is because we are certain it will protect the product.

Gift wrapping: we wrap all orders beautifully but based on the principle of minimizing waste. We do not include an invoice, so it is always safe and proper to send directly to the gift recipient. An order note is includes in the form of a personal message from kauskaki to the recipient. You can request to personalize it or replace it with your personal message instead.

Wholesale availability

We work with select surf, design, lifestyle or relevant type retail shops but 'bulk' is a term that requires clear definition. We do not mass produce. We always make to order, and to measure and plan to keep it that way. Small batches. Global reach. We offer exclusive designs to our retail partners and love to see our product featured in surf-centric establishments, like resorts, cafes, co-working hubs, sports facilities etc. Get in touch to discuss any idea or collaboration proposal.

Minions aka Gift Cards

You will find a detailed guide to the perfect gift here

In a nutshell, our minions are miniature surfboard-shaped pouches made entirely from boardsock offcuts. They come with a card that includes a personal message to the gift recipient and instructions on how to redeem their full-size surfboard sock.
