Welcome to the Team

Congratulations to our friend Duane DeSoto on his KITV appearance on Hinano's Standup World Tour. This ain't no Stand Up Paddleboarding AKA. SUP in calm lakes, but in heavy breaks like Teahupo'o in Tahiti known for below sea level waves and life threatening barrels. We collaborated with Duane and his non-profit group, Na Kama Kai, by giving proceeds of the Organik Identity graphic print tee to the foundation.

Na Kama Kai's mission is to empower youth by creating, conducting and supporting ocean-based programs, specifically targeting ocean awareness & safety in order to increase the capacity of youth in the community through cultural & environmental education.

Organik has its first official surf team rider, Erik Funakoshi of Maui. He rips on shortboards and competes on a longboard. With top finishes in longboard contests on Maui & Oahu, we look forward to supporting this young lad tear up the contest and free surf scene. Here's a pic of Eric rocking the Organik Timeless bamboo shirt while placing 3rd in the Open Longboard division in the Local Motion Surf into Summer 2009 at Ala Moana Bowls. Cheers to you Erik and welcome to the Organik ohana!
