• OUR MISSION •
At Benoa Swim OUR MISSION is to create a line of swimwear FOR, OF AND TO: WOMEN WHO INSPIRE US. The movers and the shakers. The women who are confident in who they are, the decisions, words, flaws and perfections they carry. Women who know what they want - a suit that meets their needs, knowing that they are strong, beautiful, smart and daring. We are the women who work hard for what we have, the suits, the adventures, the dream. Women who decide to take control of our happiness, life and experiences - the women who decide that they want something and deal with the sweat and tears to get it. We are mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, and lovers. We are okay on our own but better together, women ready for anything.
Beyond the Collection
This collection is about empowering women to shatter the glass ceiling and go beyond what they believed was possible for them. We’ve come to learn that there’s no certain, only where we are and beyond. We aren’t sure of how our lives are going to pan out but we are sure that it will be good because there is no room for fear of failure. We trust in ourselves and know we have what it takes to make our dreams a reality. We want to be part of you knowing that you are capable and dynamic. We want to encourage women to feel all the sides of themselves, whatever it may be.
In May 2013, in a trailer at rocky point, a swimwear line was dreamt up by two 15 year old girls India Pyzel and Luna Courtois - with two parts- Directive and Creative. Months later samples came in, the suits were named, and the label "Benoa Swim" was born. The line was simple, eight pieces, all black. Years later, we have grown to colors, prints, and ourselves.
It has become a lot more than the two 15 year old girls that started it. As we get older we get a better idea of both what we want, and what everyone else wants. We decided to come up with a line that is comfortable, simple, function-able and fun while still affordable. Our suits are made to make you feel as comfortable and beautiful as you are. Benoa works because of you, visiting the site to read this, buying suits, keeping our dream alive. Thank you for inspiring us to keep chasing our dreams.
Isle One piece x Abyss
We threw together a last minute shoot with Malaea and Nani on the Kona side of the Big Island. The sand is black and the wind out of control. We put Malaea into the Isle One Piece and everything came to life. The dark blue as moody as the day & the girl. A natural beauty with golden features. The Isle one piece gives you the coverage you seek while the smooth fabric keeps you feeling airy and confident.
Between the Seas
Our 2017 collection - Between the Seas is inspired part by Bali and part by Hawaii. Shop the collection for a perfect cross of modern and classic one pieces, tops and bottoms.
