We started Mami Wata because of love and belief. Our love for surfing, design and Africa. Our belief in the power of African surf.
“Mami Wata” is West African pidgin English literally meaning ‘Mama Water’… ‘Mother Ocean’ if you prefer. From Madagascar to Morocco, Liberia to Mozambique, Mami Wata is the African water spirit who appears in the shape of a mermaid. It is said that those who she takes for her lovers, return with a new spirit and become more successful and good looking.
Our focus is on:
Made in Africa with power
Our products are made with love in Africa to the highest quality, using local materials where possible, like African cotton, and no bad vibes.
Shining our African seas
Mami Wata respects and shares the goodness of nature. We use sustainable materials like Better Cotton Initiative cotton and compostable / recycled packaging.
African Nature Cures
Mami Wata supports surfing in Africa. The power we get from the sea, will change you in strange and better ways. Come with us.
We want to connect people to the power of Africa surf and that’s what we spend our time on at Mami Wata HQ (in addition to checking the surf report).
