The Hawaiian word Wahine means ‘female’ and is used to describe female surfers. It perfectly symbolizes our brand, as the goal of Wahine Surfwear is to create a community of surf and fashion loving ladies, with a joined mission to save the oceans.
Did you know that already in the 1600’s, female surfers challenged the big Paciﬁc waves on long hardwood surfboards?! The goal of Wahine Surfwear is to create a community of powerful women that are passionate about surf and have a deep love and respect for the ocean. Just like the Hawaiian wahines have had already since a long time.
Unlike other surfbrands, Wahine Surfwear is all about sustainable products & fairtrade. We use natural fabrics and GOTS certified inks. Our swimwear line is produced with recycled plastic. Even our packaging is eco-friendly. To ensure high quality products, we are a minimalistic brand with a limited collection.
For our photoshoots, we work together with models that are natural beauties or female surfer athletes, who are a lot more than just objectified beautiful bodies we often see as stereotype of surfer girls. We are proud that our brand can meet the needs of lady’s surfers looking for stylish clothing that suit a sustainable and conscious lifestyle.
By choosing our Organic and Ocean-friendly products, you can help us to make a meaningful difference to the world! ♥
