About Reef

Fernando and Santiago Aguerre, two brothers from Argentina, wanted to share their love for surf travel and beach culture with the world. In 1984, they moved from Argentina to the San Diego beach community of La Jolla, California, where they began Reef. Their product became popular amongst surfers and beach goers and Reef has subsequently grown into one of the world's leading active sandal manufacturers. Reef was acquired by VF Corporation in 2005 and is since 2018 a portfolio company of certain affiliates of Charlesbank Capital Partners, LLC.
