Walter de Castro


walter de castro fondateur saint jacques wetsuits

Open-minded, jack-of-all-trades mastermind Frenchman behind the Saint Jacques Wetsuits project. He is a producer, designer, writer, composer, craftsman, dreamer and above all a mere player of his own existence. An existence filled with the sound of waves, the beauty of nice swells and a strong desire to pursue his passion for surfing that started when he was 12 years old. Surfing has since then shaped his life and now the time has come for his keen artistic eyes to shape our wetsuits with elegance and comfort.

Stan Bresson

 The azure blue eyes and sun-kissed hair man : Stan. He has been sailing with the wind and the waves since his earliest childhood. His almost-mystical dedication for kite surfing forces him to live near the sea where he has alternatively been working in innovative sports brands for nearly 20 years. Today on special mission as the executive soul of Saint Jacques he preaches a right to the difference. A long-term mission that requires dedication and unconditional commitment.

"The way we dress is also a way to express as individuals" - The Saint Jacques concept was born in 2016, based on this phylosophy. The idea was to create a new trend: the Wet-à-porter. Classic fashion trends such as: polo shirts, stripes, jackets and tank tops... We all like them, so why not  transposing them to neoprene wetsuits ? This was the crazy idea of our three passionates watermen.

In a standardised system, after years of only seeing black and neon colors on surfing spots, you can now stand out with a unique retro wetsuit, both elegant and technical. Because watermen are also allowed to dress and express themselves. 

All of our collections are thought and designed in France, near Montpellier. No detail is left aside to offer high-quality products: materials, patterns, and finishings.
