Our Heritage

Creating Gear Like No Other

We have the best minds and experts in the industry who spend countless hours developing and bringing our equipment to life.  Testing and prototyping is only complete when we say it is ready for the ocean.

Our in-house facilities mean we never lose sight of this process. This enables the development of all proprietary technologies with the single purpose of improving the ride. 

This ensures everyone who chooses our Waterwear can ride in confidence knowing we’re with them at every moment on or in the water. 

ACHIEVING AMBITIONS

We’ve been in this game a long time, witnessing the evolution of our sports from recreation to an increasingly competitive, performance-orientated world.This progression has demanded advanced equipment and we have always stepped up to meet the requirements of riders at every level. 

Obsessed by an ambition to exceed expectations and driven by a committed global team, we have earned a desired reputation for pushing the boundaries of performance on the water. Our products are sophisticatedly engineered and designed with purpose to empower riders to push further.
