STRUB Activewear was founded in Vancouver, Canada, in 2006, and then in Zurich, Switzerland in 2014, by renowned athlete Conny Strub. Our care for people and animals alike, our world view, and distinctive fashion-driven approach culminated in creating a business where the clothing and gear reflects our own sense of style and purpose.
The clothing lines we carry are functional, fashionable, comfortable and versatile – and are made from a variety of fibres, from technical to natural – because it is our culture to inspire adventure, no matter where you end up, from the wilderness to the office.
When people think of British Columbia, they think of rainforests. But since the Pacific Ocean laps the length of the province, there are also miles of coastal beaches to explore—not to mention islands. A few of these beaches have a pretty high profile, such as Kitsilano Beach, which on a hot day pulses with people swimming and spiking volleyballs. But others offer a more low-key scene as locals spread out to claim their own patches of paradise.
Which way to the beach? Well, in this city you can find one everywhere you turn. You might not associate Vancouver with beaches, but whether you're looking for a stretch of sand to spread out and relax with a good book, an outdoor court to spike a volleyball, or a catwalk to strut your stuff, you’ll find it here. Here are some of our favourite beaches in the city.
