Our Story

We are a growing family of five who have a love for all things salt water. Our business is based out of Ocean Isle Beach, NC and in our spare time, you can most likely find us boating or enjoying the sand between our toes in Southeastern NC.

We purchased Southern Buoys in June of 2020. We thought it to be a great opportunity to continue a local clothing line founded here in our hometown back in 2015. Our clothing line will incorporate new and original ideas that we get from our collaborative time spent on our North Carolina waters. There will be a little something for buoys and a little something for gulls!

Thank you for your patience as we make this new transition. We are working with a local printer here in Ocean Isle, North Carolina as we feel it's most important to support local businesses when possible. 

We are excited about the future of Southern Buoys and incorporating some of our new and original ideas into cool, comfortable clothing and accessories for you. We have spent countless hours searching for the most comfortable fabrics that wear well and feel good.
