Welcome to
Raimana World

To know Raimana Van Bastolaer is to love him. Often referred to as the waterman’s waterman, “Tahitian royalty” and “Teahupoo’s Godfather,” Raimana invites surfers of all skill levels into his very own Raimana World, making sure everyone’s experience is unforgettable. “My main thing is connecting people–my world to the foreigners or the locals and opening new doors for people. That’s what Raimana World is. Not only opening new doors for myself but for local Tahitians too,” Raimana says.

Raimana World Apex Trunk

Celebrating the ancient art of Tahitian tattooing in company with one of the best performance trunks on the market, Raimana designed his very own custom Apex Trunk featuring hand-drawn artwork the legend drew himself. These trunks are sustainably engineered for maximum performance, and made from 100% post-consumer waste, like plastic water bottles.

"Tattoos are a part of the Tahitian culture...For some people who want to get a tattoo without ink on them, they can wear my stuff and have a tattoo on their thigh or on their arms without inking themselves!" Raimana says.

The Waterman's Waterman

“Teahupoo gets really really big and hollow. People are screaming and yelling, the whole vibe, the boats are there, everyone’s cheering for you, you can hear them on the wave. In the lineup, people are yelling, “Go! Go!”

"Giving this surf opportunity to someone who has ever done it before and you see the look on their face, they almost cry. They’ve been waiting for this. Some of them are 60 and they are finally able to surf."
