From Kpaloa’s website
“Founded in 1983 by Augusto Conti, son of a prominent rubber industrialist, KPALOA is a 100% Brazilian company specialized in the production of high performance surface swimfins made of high quality vulcanized rubber, for bodyboarding, bodysurfing, swimming and rescue. Due to his know-how in rubber technology and his great love of sports, besides being focused, painstaking, and highly artistic, Augusto idealized the project at the very beginning of bodyboarding in Brazil, was passionate about it, and, ever since, has offered athletes a state-of-the-art product. “Something new is coming up at sea”, the slogan used by Kpaloa to launch its first model of swimfins! Since its creation, KPALOA has always aimed at producing the best swimfins in the world, giving athletes and lifeguards equipment that offers excellent propulsion, comfort, durability and safety.”
And KPALOA’s concerns go beyond producing swimfins. In its history, the company has always been interested in supporting social projects, such as the Estrelas do Mar, which helps people with physical and mental deficiencies in their contact with the sea, besides the courses in bodyboarding and swimming for low-income children all over Brazil, such as the Escolinha de Bodyboarding in Rocinha, in RJ, and the Escolinha da Neymara Carvalho, in ES.
Furthermore, worried about the environment, KPALOA neutralizes the carbon emitted by its production and logistics by planting rubber trees on national territory, thus aiding the strengthening of this activity, which today is dominated by Asian countries, in Brazil.”
