Besides our North Shore Swim Ohana that we support at 10+ different races throughout the year inclusing sponsoring the Waikiki Roughwater Swimmers, we personally sponsor A wide variety of high-performance athletes that have put our sunscreen to the test in the most extreme conditions around the world. From Polina Carlson Training for the 2020 London World Games to Sebastian Zeitz shredding waves all around the world, they know Kokua is tough enough to stand up to all the elements and the won’t ever run, sting eyes, or come off while sweating, yet feels light enough to achieve the “barely there” feel. With 4 hours of Water Resistance, our athletes know they can achieve their best without worrying about going home burnt. Aloha to everyone out there living pono and pushing your bodies to the limit!
