The name of the store is an abbreviation of its full name which is Pacific Sun Wear. And its official full name is Pacific Sun Wear Of California.
The company was founded by John Hopkins and John Moore in 1980. Their idea was to “Bring the beach to the people”. This explains why their first store was not built anywhere near a beach but actually Las Vegas. Starting out Tom established himself as the surfer poster boy for the company, while John handled the business end of the company. John’s history as a CPA and commercial mall broker gave the new company a big advantage. After their initial success they quickly branched out to many locations across America and Puerto Rico.
Today the company sells all the most popular surf and skate brands. They have been embraced by companies such as Quicksilver, Hurley, Billabong and countless others. The store is ideal for anyone interested in sports related to surfing and skateboarding.
