Our Story

It all began in Portugal and its surf camps. An amazing place with incredible people that make you feel at home even if you are thousands of kilometers away. A source of genuine inspiration and some of the best waves in the world, this land and culture triggered the nascency of the concept for a new brand of wetsuits and neoprene accessories which does the things in another way.  

Searching for answers to questions like 'Why they are mostly black?', 'Why they are so similar and boring while all people are so different and colourful?', the concept evolved into a detailed plan backed up by a team of dedicated and experienced professionals with passion for water sports.

The answers came just to confirm what we already felt was right. Runawave was born to deliver more colours, more customizations and more inspiration into the market. Strategically positioned within Europe, the target to stay close to the people who are using our products was easier to meet. This made the development of our whole portfolio much more efficient and making sure we really get down to the details.    

The result is designs, optimized to make no compromise with warmth, comfort or durability. In the same time, each of our products is produced on demand and stands out among the rest. And so will you!

Our team constructed the first prototypes and asked various professional sportsmen and women to test them in real conditions. Taking into account the collected feedback, we continued improving our wetsuits and patiently waited for the right time to bring them to the market.

In the end, it is all driven by the love for the sport but also by pursuing your dream. We invite you to become a part of it!
