Pipeline LS Tee - Red
100% Recycled Fibers
Our clothes are designed in a circular way, using only recycled materials. The Pipeline LS Tee is composed of 50% recycled cotton, sourced from textile industry waste, and 50% recycled polyester, collected from used plastic bottles.
The Perfect Equilibrium
We opted for a 50% - 50% mix of recycled cotton and recycled polyester for one simple reason: it brings out both materials' advantages. The recycled cotton gives a soft touch, keeps you warm, while the polyester enables breathability and repels sweat.
Each product has a story that we believe is worth sharing. Here is the journey that this tee went through:
- Yarn: Our recycled yarn is first produced in the north of Alicante, Spain.
- Fabric knitting & manufacturing: Our fabric is then knitted and manufactured into the Shak & Kai Pipeline LS tee in the district of Braga, in Portugal.
Cleaning the ocean
On top of creating sustainable and circular clothes, we believed we could do more. That's why when you buy this tee, or any other Shak & Kai items, we remove 1/2 kg of coastlines trash thanks to a partnership with Surfrider Foundation Europe.

What is behind the name Pipeline?
Located on Oahu’s North Shore, in Hawaii, the Banzaï Pipeline is what you might call the most prestigious spot on the planet. The Pipeline wave explodes on a coral reef in very shallow water. The spot is as famous as it is dangerous. Indeed, swell refraction is greatly responsible for the miracle of Pipeline and the speedy cylinders break only a few feet above the underwater obstacles. A tube with an abyssal depth that works almost flawlessly at any height from 1 meter to 5 meters. When conditions are perfect, there are sometimes more than a hundred surfers in the water.
Loic, our model, is 1m80 tall, weighs 73 kg and is wearing a size M.
