Town & Country Surf Designs (also known as T&C) is a world recognised manufacturer of surfboards. T&C's origins began in 1971 with a single store founded by Craig Sugihara in Pearl City, Hawaii. The company soon expanded into a full line of surfwear and surfing accessories and now has retail shops throughout the world in countries such as Japan, Australia, and Peru.
In the 1980s, T&C became famous for their shirt designs featuring "Da' Boys," surfing cartoon characters designed by Steve Nazar. The most famous of these was Thrilla Gorilla, a surfing anthropomorphic gorilla. In 1988, LJN released a game on the NES based on the store, entitled Town & Country Surf Designs: Wood & Water Rage. A sequel focusing on Thrilla Gorilla (Town & Country II: Thrilla's Surfari) followed in 1992, before the character designs disappeared into obscurity.
