G-SHOCK teams up with California-born professional surfer Kanoa Igarashi to launch the signature model based on G-LIDE Series. Being a TEAM G-SHOCK member, Kanoa Igarashi is currently competing on the World Surf League Championship Tour.
The watch comes with a skeleton bezel and band inspired by the ocean. It is paired with a mirror finish face that gives the watch a simple, cool finish.
The thin and square shape of the watch ensures that it does not obstruct the wrist while surfing.
The signature, along with his full name in block letters, appears on the stainless steel case back, EL backlight and band keeper.
A 22-year-old world-class surfing talent born into the world of surfing, Igarashi’s father was a big fan of the sport. When he was just three years old, Kanoa decided that he was tired of just watching and started joining in on the fun. It wasn’t long before people realized he was a surfing prodigy destined for greatness.
