If a mermaid did exist, it would be French Tahitian born surfer Hanalei Reponty-Gudauskas. Dig a little deeper and there is a lot more than meets the eye. With home bases on three continents – Tahiti, USA, Australia, Hanalei is a wife and an avid environmentalist who’s deep love for the water has channeled her into creating her own label that gives back to the ocean and its habitants. Amongst the monochromatic black and white of the Haydenshapes brand, Hanalei brings a little light and colour to our somewhat (and admittedly) androgynous line up.
Hanalei is the founder and owner of ethical swimwear label Abysse.
