Born and raised in the Bay Area of Northern California, founder Alyssa Levesque was inspired to create StraitSwim after living and experiencing life with her long time partner Patty (who now plays basketball for the San Antonio Spurs). Upon meeting him, it was evident that his Aboriginal and Torres Strait culture is a part of his everyday life. Ten years together and it’s naturally become a part of Alyssa’s life as well. Since her very first ferry ride from Horn Island to Thursday Island, she has been impassioned by the culture. Catching her first fish on a reef off of Prince of Wales, performing a traditional dance at a big celebration event, and even learning some secret island recipes, Alyssa was uplifted by the Torres Strait. Combining her experiences with a true passion for fashion, the gorgeous swimwear from StraitSwim was born!
