Surfy clothing brands like Saltrock

I'm trying to find more casual surfer style clothes as I've decided it suits me and my lifestyle. I'm a size 14, work from home, mum of two, 30s...
I like floral dresses, boots, denim skirts, hoodies, that sort of thing. I know I may sound too old for that look but I think it suits me and any Boden type stuff I've bought just sits in my wardrobe, winking at me as a waste of money.
I've done the relaxed skinnies plus converse plus breton to death and, while I still love it, I want to find some surfy brands to get some new stuff.
I love Saltrock but there isn't that much choice. What other brands are like this? It used to be White Stuff but I think that's gone a bit smart/Boden. I quite like Fat Face but my mum wears it! I want more of the British Cornish type look but I don't know what to search for!
Anyone else like this style? Where do you shop?

I love Saltrock stuff. Online seems to have different stuff than in store.

As pp said, surfdome is great. You can get some lovely things by Billabong and Roxy - personally I prefer the ones without the big logos, which you might have to search harder for but are good quality, flattering and often great colours.

More expensive, but I also love California 'beach' brands like Sundry and James Perse, look out for bargains on Asos, Revolve and the Outnet.

Rip Curl
And try TK Maxx for other random less 'big' brands too.

Roo's Beach is new and very cool in Newquay and I think they are selling on line too now.

Thanks all - I'll have a look at Roo's Beach. I looked at Seasalt and I like it but it's more like Boden than Saltrock I think? Saltrock doesn't seem to have much stuff online though - are the shops bigger?

Sorry should be Mudd and Water

And much more expensive but Celtic clothing formerly Celtic Sheepskin do some lovely things. They are based in Cornwall

Seasalt are worth a look. White Stuff too?

bojorojo Tue 31-May-16 10:18:49

Far Face

Ann's Cottage own (I think) Animal but carry lots of ranges, might be worth a look on their website?

Have a look online at Finisterre (Cornwall) and Howies (Wales).

Also I don't think your age should be a barrier to wearing what you like, it's how you wear it that's important.

Abbinob Tue 31-May-16 13:27:23

I don't think 30s is too old for surfery type clothes at all, in fact, isn't that the most likely age to wear it? Other than actual surfers of course I only really see 30s+ wearing that sort of fat face type stuff

I'd second Finisterre. The clothes aren't cheap, but anything I've bought from them I've worn and worn - I've got a longline hoodie dress that I love & that is perfect for Welsh seaside summers. They have a relatively small range at any given time, & only seem to offer one or two colours of anything, but change their offerings quite frequently.
(Be aware that their clothes do come up quite small, so you might want to check the measurements they give & potentially go up a size when ordering.)
