Fact: one can simultaneously be feminine, athletic, sexy as hell, and still be a tomboy at heart.
Abysse encompasses all of the above in their line of luxe eco-friendly swimwear and wetsuits. Made for active water women, these sporty swimsuits are a seamless blend of style and function.
The brand was created by Hanalei Reponty-Gudauskas, an ocean-loving surfer/model/designer who grew up in Tahiti and just happens to resemble a mermaid.
Hanalei was inspired to create a line of swim and surfwear durable enough for active pursuits and stylish enough to make you feel darn good doing them. And bravo, because mission accomplished.
Abysse suits have a magical power to make you look and feel like a bona fide Bond Girl.
Made in California, the line has a mix of bikinis, surf suits, and spring suits perfect for long days in the surf and sun.
A couple of our favorites for surfing are the Billie, a cheeky backless one-piece surf suit, the Lotte, a 2mm long sleeve spring suit, and the Elle, a 2mm one piece with a sporty racerback.
Sustainability is at the core of the brand – all Abysse wetsuits are made from Japanese limestone-based neoprene (which is more eco-friendly than traditional neoprene), and all bikinis and activewear are made out of 100% recycled fabric repurposed from discarded fishing nets.
If you’re up for channeling your inner surf goddess the next time you paddle out, Abysse is the perfect companion for her.
