Our Story

Nudi Wear was born as a result of two divers wanting to be a part of a positive change for our oceans. Over the years, we have seen the negative effects of human impacts on our watery world. We have seen once thriving eco-systems damaged and deserted, destruction from poor fishing and tourism practices, and overwhelming marine pollution. On the other hand, we have also seen the positive impacts humans can make when they show awareness and concern. We have seen those reefs that were once destroyed become protected marine parks with new growth and life, people rescuing and rehabilitating trapped or injured marine animals, and once littered ocean bottoms become debris free. We knew we wanted to be a part of the solution. Nudi Wear became the platform for us to help bring awareness and to promote change in the waters we love. We strive for our actions and our products to evoke a love for the ocean and the animals found within it as well as foster a desire to protect them.
