PUKA was founded to break the stereotype that you can't love your country and the environment. We thrive off the synergy between patriotism, environmentalism, and capitalism. It is our belief that ethics and staying true to our mission is more powerful than profit. That is why our apparel is 100% hand-crafted in the USA using the world's most sustainable fabrics and practices.
PUKA's mission is to raise awareness for ocean pollution and revitalize love for American freedom through education, monthly beach cleanups, and supporting our Veterans. 10% of profits are donated to the Ocean Institute and Wounded Warrior Project.
Being born and raised in Southern California, Mike has always had deep love and respect for the ocean. He works as an ocean lifeguard and loves to surf in his free-time.
Mike is also very patriotic. He loves our country and is proud to be an American. He is a speaker for Turning Point USA to raise awareness for ocean pollution, ocean conservation, and American values.
Combining his two passions, patriotism and environmentalism, PUKA was born!
