Mami Wata - Our Calling

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).

Please feel free to come and have a Congo Black coffee and chat at our store
