Creator & Designer

(Swimming Costumes)



My name is Zoe Strapp 

I am a surfer, diver, travel addict and Environmental Scientist. After spending the last few years trekking around the globe, searching for those perfect waves and diving into vibrant coral reefs, realised enduring countless wipe outs, is another level of difficult when your top is floating away, not to mention that most of my surfing and diving suits made me feel like i was ready for a workout! So by taking inspiration from my ocean adventures, I made my dream a reality. Akua Oceanwear offers a unique combination of elegant, cheeky designs and surf friendly cuts, to create that suit you always needed!

I believe the best way for people to care for our oceans, is by learning to love them. Surfing has always been the starting drive for my passion for the marine world. My goal is to promote the ocean adventure life style and get more women in the line-ups (not just boys J ), while letting you know your next ocean adventure is part of something bigger!
