Akua Oceanwear

Hi everyone, Zoe Strapp here again, founder of Sustainable Surf Swimwear brand Akua Oceanwear.

Summer is fast approaching and here at Akua Oceanwear, we can’t wipe the excitement off our faces!!

Summer is a special time when love is ignited, places are explored and memories are made, especially for all the lucky people that get to call the coast our home.

While there are endless reasons why we all love summer, the most exciting part, I think we would all agree, is the emphasis task of shopping for that perfect bikini for your summer adventures.

Every women is different, with a unique style and shape, we all want a bikini we can count on and feel confident in. That’s why Akua Oceanwear is very excited to bring to the amazing Coast Food for Though community, Akua Oceanwears 17/18 Summer Tropical Kiss Collection.

Inspired by Australia’s mesmerizing Great Barrier Reef and long summer days spent surfing, swimming and playing on the beach, this beautiful collection is vibrant, functional and sustainable. Weather you want extra support, or minimal tan lines, classical cuts or ones with a little more flare, Akua has it all this summer.

Each of our pieces are made using the highest quality material, designed in Australia and ethically manufacturer in Indonesia. We create every piece with a beautiful seamless finish, 100% reversible from unique marine inspired prints to must have summer colours, you can mix and match to fit any day.

This collection has been carefully created to combine elegance, comfort and surf friendly designs, allowing women to explore the sea, live up the surfing life style or just enjoy the beach, while feeling confident their bikini will stay put.
