Welcome to Ulupono
Ulupono Surf Company™ is a California-based surf brand inspired by its grassroots following. Ulupono was formerly known as Tribal Surf, a community of California surfers founded in 2008. At Ulupono, we cater to the surfer and not to the masses. Translated from Hawai’ian, ulu pono means, “to thrive on a noble path.”
Our design philosophy is inspired by the grassroots surfing from which Ulupono was formed. We aim to stay true to the core.

There is the soul surfer. These free spirited, free surfing individuals are embarked on a transcending journey. They have surfed all manner of waves on all manner of surf riding vehicles. They haven’t just become one with the Sea, they share in its ebbs and flows forever seeking a higher level of existence. To these sages of surf, less is more.
Unisex and fits like a well-loved favorite, featuring a crew neck, short sleeves and made with superior Airlume combed and ring-spun cotton.
Nothing compares to the style and grace of the wahine kai (woman of the Sea). They dance on water with smooth cross-step movements. They are statuesque in their poses noseriding the pocket. If there was ever evidence in our evolutionary ancestry originating from the Sea, it is in the fluid movement of the wahine kai.
The women’s tee fits like a well-loved favorite, featuring a slim feminine fit, crew neck, short sleeves and superior Airlume combed and ring-spun cotton. Please check the size chart as sizes tend to run small.
Pursuing a noble path is never easy. It is a winding path fraught with headwinds. What drives Ulupono forward and determined to live up to its namesake is our very simple and pure love of surf. This is our life, and now this is our noble path.
