How Wahine Surfwear’s failed Kickstarter campaign is still a success story ♥


Dear backers, surfers and other ocean-lovers,

As you may noticed our Wahine Surfwear® crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter did not reach its funding goal, but there is no way we are giving up! We are so thankful for all of your support and those amazing and generous pledges. Without your help we would never have reached € 6.822!! ♥

However Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing platform and we were short of the €10.000 we needed to raise to give our eco-friendly surfwear brand the ultimate kick-off. But the campaign did help us in many other ways. Our brand did receive some amazing media coverage on national and international level. Varying from surf magazines to blogs and local newspapers. We are so happy with all the love and positive reactions we have received and gained a lot of new fans.

We want to thank all our backers for believing in Wahine Surfwear® and for supporting our vision.

At the moment we are figuring out the next steps and are busy finding other ways to finance the growth of our brand. We will continue to keep you in the loop!

Wahine Surfwear® joins National Geographic Beach Cleanup

On Saturday June 24th Charlotte and Tatjana -founders of Wahine Surfwear®- joined a group of 600 volunteers in an effort to clean up part of the Dutch coastline between Scheveningen and Zandvoort.

The Beach Cleanup was part of the campaign #STOPMETPLASTIC. With this campaign National Geographic hopes to create more awareness the plastic waste problem we face. The Dutch coastline has an average of 120 kilos of trash per kilometer, making it clear that even here in the Netherlands we have a serious problem with plastic waste.

During this 2018 Beach Cleanup a team of 600 volunteers picked up over 3000 kilos(!) of plastic waste from the beaches between coastal cities Scheveningen and Zandvoort. We have collected different types of plastic waste, ranging from fishing nets, straws, balloons and plastic bottles to pieces of microplastic. We are so proud of this amazing achievement!
