Ohana – we are family. Ohana is a company founded by ocean athletes, for ocean athletes.
The name ‘Ohana’ is Hawaiian meaning family, it extends further to mean that no-one should be left behind or forgotten. Like the Hawaiians, Ohana has a strong connection and deep respect for the sea.
Ohana Ocean Athletics was founded by people who surf, whose very existence and those they strive to save, relies on performing at the highest levels in some of the toughest conditions on earth.
