The Anti-Social Surf Club was inspired by the early days of surf exploration, from the mid 60's to early 70's. Tropical frontiers were pioneered, fueled by changing board design, better air travel, a more open mindset and increasingly crowded surf back home. 50 years later, these themes continue to resonate with us and inspire our adventures and aesthetic.

Durable Handmade in USA hats & caps for the discerning surfer/skater.
Driven by a headwear market that seemed limited and stale at the time, The Ampal Creative launched its first full collection in 2007. Over the last 13 years we have developed a diverse following and become known for quality and attention to detail.
Since 2010, all Ampal hats, socks, beanies patches - everything - have been exclusively Made in USA. We search local jobbers and manufacturers for premium textiles and unique prints. Often, we find a single roll of deadstock material and make as many hats as we can from it. Being 100% hands on in all stages of development, for each hat, allows us to ensure the highest level of quality.
"Made Like They Used To" is more than just a saying for us. Its how we try to make every product that we release. "Back in the day" clothing & most products were built to last, not disposable purchases that don't make it a year. We have a personal collection of Ampal hats that have seen years of adventures & abuse - they all have a great worn character, like a great old pair of jeans, but still have a few more years of sun protection in them.
