This surf brand was created in the 1970s by a Brazilian who originally studied medicine and then decided to go in search of a simpler life that was connected to the coast and the land. Mormaii was born in nearby Garopaba Beach out of that search, and it’s one of the best surf and skate brands throughout Brazil. The style is casual and simple, made with quality and care. Men will find everything in their store including swimsuits, T-shirts, sunglasses and wetsuits.
