About Jams World & Surf Line Hawaii
Founder Dave Rochlen grew up at the beach in Santa Monica, California. He was a lifeguard, surfer, dirt bike rider and paddle board racer who enjoyed the carefree Southern California lifestyle. He visited Hawaii and met native Hawaiian surfer girl Keanuenue Ka’eo, whom he married in 1953. He appeared on the cover of LIFE Magazine in 1949 as an icon for this new beach lifestyle, and again in 1954 in underwater scuba gear as the stuntman for Disney’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Dave later opened a surfboard shop called Surf Line Hawaii on Kona Street in Honolulu. Inspired by a group of Russians in their pajamas on the cover of Life Magazine, Dave asked his wife to cut a pair of Hawaiian print pajama pants into shorts for surfing. JAMS, short for pajamas, was born.
