THE ORCA BRAND IS INSPIRED BY THE OPEN SEA AND ITS NATURAL SPIRIT OF FREEDOM.
We are from New Zealand by birth but possess a global outlook. Our company was founded in 1995 because former triathlon champion Scott Unsworth was passionate about creating better, faster wetsuits than those on the market. That relentless desire to use cutting edge innovation to fuel the best performance remains with us today. The Orca name evokes the instinct and prowess of the powerful ruler of the oceans. Like the Orca whale, our designs have always been organic, streamlined and in tune with nature.
At Orca we are united by a passion for difficult sports and personal improvement.
The power of a person against the elements. We like to feel the strength of nature, which empowers us to overcome our limits. For us, the experience and passion for sports outweigh the competition itself; we believe there is nothing more challenging than challenging yourself.
Our athletes go where others have not and teach us that often limits do not exist. They inspire and motivate our community to meet new challenges and we provide them with a quality and sustainable product that is able to perform through the most extraordinary challenges.
To reach the personal achievement that performance brings you, the first step is to be able to practice the sport safely.
For us, the experience is the most important thing, and that is why providing maximum safety is one of our fundamental pillars when it comes to product development.
We come from the sea. We love it and respect it at the same time, because we have experienced its strength and the danger it can pose in certain circumstances. For us it is important that our community feels safe at sea with our products. To do this, we collaborate with industry professionals and organisations that help us improve our products.
CONFIDENCE TO PERFORM
We create technical products that perform in the most extreme conditions.
To do this, we offer our high ranges the latest in technology and performance, in order to meet the needs of the most demanding users.
Our products are designed with the help of our professional athletes, who analyse the product in scrupulous detail, try the prototypes and test them before the final product goes to market. In this way, we get products that provide the athlete with the highest possible performance, giving them the confidence, they need to face any challenge in the most extreme conditions.
