Who we are

Welcome on Akewatu!
Here, we eat-sleep-drink surf, we go surfing and we talk about surfboards all day. As you can see, on our team, we are quite "surfy" people.

We have created this website

so that everyone in Europe can buy and sell boards, without scams, and without picking the wrong one. A surfboard is a bit like a car or a piece of jewelry: it's nice to have the exact characteristics you want. This is why we created this dedicated platform, on which a team of expert goes through the ads and verify what is being sold. We advise the sellers so that they can find the perfect board that will fit their needs - and we support sellers, so they can find buyers.

Akewatu is a team of passionate surfers and web pros, gathered under the name WorldGlissSAS. The enterprise was founded in 2016 by Nico and Julien, two surf and action sports lovers, whom you can easily find on the beaches of Cap Ferret. Since then, WorldGliss shaped up like a proper set wave. Ludo is our technical expert from Barcelona. There is also Seb, our artist from Nantes et and Emma, a.k.a Miss Community Manager. Geoff is our marketing guru, and Ben and Diane are our surf pupils.

You probably wonder why we are called Akewatu?


Now that's a great question! Akewatu means "next session" in Maori. We hope that, thanks to our website, you will have many many "next sessions"! There is something quite inspiring in the Maori. In this culture, loyalty and solidarity count for more than hierarchy or money. Those are values that we all share at Akewatu, as much the employees than the members of our website.

They show in our business and in the concept of buying and selling verified used surfboards. Giving a second life to surfboards with Akewatu is much better for the planet than throwing them away! But it's even more than that: it's passing along to another surfer a piece of gear that gave us hours of fun.

For all questions, partnerships, or if you just want to come for a session with us, please email us at

contact@akewatu.fr

You can also use our live chat. We answer live, every day, except when the whole team is in the water, which happens... sometimes. Don't hesitate if you want to chat with us. It has been said that we're pretty nice.

Have a good surf!
