Surfer owned. Surfer operated.
AVVA's dedicated team of individuals & athletes were brought together because of their mutual love & respect of the ocean and a desire to share that bond with others. Our apparel is designed from the ground up influenced by the streets and proven & tested in Hawaiian waters. We are incredibly proud of what AVVA's achieved, but it would be a hollow victory if we didn't use our success to protect and preserve the ecosystems and coastlines that inspired it. This core truth has driven us to partner and collaborate with organizations, non-profits, and events that advance the ongoing fight to protect what has given Founder Kekoa Cazimero the platform to do what he does best.
