The Vaikobi Story


Vaikobi Ocean Performance was established in 2012 with a clear mission to increase performance and comfort on the water, by creating the world’s most innovative technical apparel for ocean athletes.

With over a decade of experience in the technical watersports apparel industry and a lifetime of ocean sport addiction, the Vaikobi design team is all about creating gear that we love to wear to improve our own experiences on the water.

Staying at the optimum body temperature and remaining completely comfortable is the primary philosophy that guides the design and development process for every item in the Vaikobi range. 

Ensuring each item meets key performance and functionality requirements is critical to our design process and as such, Vaikobi works with some of the world’s best athletes across a range of watersport disciplines to design and develop the most innovative performance apparel.


The Vaikobi Race Team is a select group of International and National Champions across a range of sailing and paddling disciplines who test and provide feedback on our gear so that we can constantly improve our products.

    Vaikobi is now sold in 21 countries through a network of specialist retailers and we will continue to use our design IP and strong brand philosophy to provide innovative products for a range of Ocean and Outdoor sports, and further spread the Vaikobi experience to more Ocean Athletes around the world.
