OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE – The Donavon Frankenreiter collection by Billabong is set for release this season. Based on the duel fantasy of music and surfing, the line includes a very personal take on boardshorts, t-shirts, pants, hats and accessories.
"The collection embraces my surfing philosophy and the musical side of my life and everything that surrounds it," says Donavon. "It's a reflection of my life over the last 15 years."
Donavon has carved a successful career as a free-styling professional wave rider, the leading man in Fuel TV's Drive-Thu series, a surfer known for eccentric board designs, flamboyant bottom turns and a charismatic personality that has made him a one name celebrity in the surfing world.
Not content to be constrained by beach culture alone, he has emerged in recent years as a budding musician whose songwriting, guitar prowess and grassroots following has now brought him to the verge of major stardom.
As both a surfer and a musician he has walked the fine line of a stylist with a distinctive flair for both 70's retro chic and contemporary cool.
So it is not surprising that with the release of his new album, the Donavon Collection is also set to debut. The line, scheduled to be in stores December 10th, can be previewed on www.billabong.com/donavon
