A Manson Family t-shirt available in black cotton.
The Charlie Don't Surf T-Shirt is inspired by a vintage t-shirt design that was adapted from the famous line from the 1979 movie Apocalypse Now.
'Charlie Don't Surf' is a famous line from the film Apocalypse Now, spoken by LTCOL Kilgore as justification for taking a beach at the Mekong Delta so the American soldiers could go surfing.
Certain counter culture groups appropriated the phrase, combining it with Charles Manson, to provide a possible reference to Manson's involvement with The Beach Boys.

Most of our t-shirts are printed onto the Gildan range of clothing. The Gildan tees are 100% preshrunk cotton. We find these tees are particularly suited to DTG printing and are available in a wide variety of sizes and colours. Occasionally, when stock dictates, we will use a similar brand of equivalent quality. All of our t-shirts are manufactured using the latest Direct To Garment printing (DTG) printing methods. Unlike traditional screen printing DTG does not require detailed layer seperation, screen preparation etc which makes it the ideal print solution for detailed, multi-coloured designs. As the name suggests, all our t-shirts have their designs printed directly onto the garment using specially formulated garment inks. For best results we recommend washing all our t-shirts inside out with similar colours and on a cool 30 degree wash. To avoid any excessive shrinkage avoid the tumble dryer and let Mother Nature do her work by line drying your tee.
