Mami Wata

From Madagascar to Morocco, Liberia to Mozambique, Mami Wata is the African water spirit who appears in the shape of a mermaid. She is a symbol of fertility and a guardian of sea creatures and natural environments. The name “Mami Wata” is West African pidgin English meaning ‘Mama Water’ or ‘Mother Ocean’, with the brand being created to show the power that can be harnessed in African surf. Mami Wata’s mission is to be a creative force for good in Africa by the design and manufacturing of a premium range of apparel, surfboards, and accessories in Africa to create jobs and help build skills in the Motherland. The brand uses local materials, such as African cotton, this makes Mami Wata very different from other brands out there as only about 8% of the world’s cotton is African cotton; this means whenever a product is purchased, you’re helping to support local African farmers and communities. Working with the Better Cotton Initiative, Waves for Change and Surfers Not Street Children, this brand is paving the way for a new type of surfing.
