A community. A philosophy. A lifestyle.

For the adventurers the dreamers the thinkers & the doers. Vivida is a community. A philosophy. A lifestyle. Making the most of our precious lives. Much more than a brand. Building a global community that has profound impacts on making the world a better place.

because if you don’t live when you are alive, when are you going to do it…?

Vivida is more than a brand. It is a community, a philosophy, a lifestyle. A movement uniting a community of adventurers, dreamers, thinkers and doers with a passion for life and all it has to offer.

The Vivida Lifestyle, with its name deriving from 'Viva la Vida', serves as a daily reminder to be grateful for this precious, beautiful life we have been granted. To remind us that as our lives draw to an end, we want to look back on a life well lived; one in which we acted through love rather than fear. The Vivida Lifestyle is all about chasing your dreams, doing what you love, and living life to its full. 

You’ll notice a particular orientation towards Kitesurfing, Yoga, Surf, Wakeboarding in the Vivida feeds. These sports encapsulate what the Vivida Lifestyle is about. They are fantastic vehicles through which one can experience this wonderful world, immersing you into nature’s elements and forcing you to be present in the moment. 

The Vivida Lifestyle is by no means limited to these sports. It may well be that some of our customers won’t have ever surfed, perhaps nor are they yogi world-wide adventurers, but all our customers find value in incorporating the Vivida Lifestyle philosophy and outlook into their everyday lives. Vivida hopes to spark a mindset shift, even if only by a little.

Vivida's products are unique because of what they represent. You put on a pair of Vivida leggings and you feel Vivida. You become part of something larger: the movement, the philosophy, the ethos.

Today, Vivida's founder is working on bringing the retail side of Vivida to a stand-alone business that can act as the 'bread & butter' for the business behind the movement; building a team that can run the day to day operations so that he and TeamVivida can concentrate on the bigger picture of Vivida's purpose.

We invite you to join our a journey to live a conscious life doing what we love. The alternative, as David Foster Wallace says, is unconsciousness, the default setting, the rat race.

THE PROBLEM

Blockages that limit us from living our best lives.

The purpose of life is to live it, to experience, to reach out eagerly without fear for newer and richer experience. As humans we limit our full potential due to blockages such as pressure, expectations, plans, pride, fear of embarrassment, fear of failure, fear of not fitting in.

THE SOLUTION

Improve the quality of people’s lives.

Inspire, empower & lift people up by emphasising that we won’t live forever. Vivida helps people make the big choices in life. Almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Living a fulfilling life. This is the #vividalifestyle concept.

HOW IS THE SOLUTION IMPLEMENTED?

There are 3 core Vivida pillars for achieving our ultimate vision of improving the quality of people’s lives.

1 / INSPIRE & SUPPORT GLOBAL COMMUNITY via teamvivida

Create the tools that help people unlock their full, incredible potential. Support a global community of like-minded, passionate individuals that inspire and empower one another to live a balanced, healthy and fulfilling lifestyle doing what they love.

Appoint inspiring, kind, enthusiastic, positive, conscious, friendly TeamVivida ambassadors as role models for the community that personify the Vivida Lifestyle values, spread the good word, and lift up their micro communities in a positive way.

2/ BUILD The best & Most sustainable product

Build the best watersports, yoga & activewear. Eco-friendly products that are built to last, built for adventure, for purpose. Pieces of art that combine beauty and function, serving as tools to empower the Vivida community to pursue their passions.

Making the best product matters for saving the planet. Rome wasn’t built in a day, but we are consciously & proactively moving towards our long term goal of becoming a fully-circular eco-conscious brand. Limiting our ecological impact by building products that last for generations or that can at least be recycled so the materials in them remain in use.

3/ PROMOTE CONNECTION WITH NATURE

Protect our home, protect mother earth. Alongside our goal of becoming zero-waste and fully-circular with our production of product, the Vivida community inspires surf, kitesurf and yoga as ways to connect ourselves to nature and thereby bring us back to the basics of what is important in life. 



ENVIRONMENTAL & Social responsibility

Vivida is dedicated to making high quality products that are both ethically and environmentally conscious. They our built for function and tested by kiters, surfers, wakeboarders, windsurfers and yogis from around the world.

‘We need action, not hope, on fighting climate change’

Greta Thunberg realized at a young age the lapse in what several climate experts were saying and in the actions that were being taken in society. It is our duty to use our Vivida voice to inspire positive change in the fashion industry through taking actions in our materials and our supply chain. To protect our home, protect our mother earth.

The real beauty to me of Vivida is the fact that it’s not about being a money-making machine. It’s not about being a label or a brand. It’s really about representing a project of like-minded individuals who are dedicated, inspired, focused, and willing to assist one another in achieving their passions.
— T. Wells (World Traveller, Surfer, Kiteboarder, Dancer, Free Spirit)

Vivida is not a passing brand. It is a mindset. It is a vision. It is a place you can be yourself; release your inhibitions, and fearlessly go out to embrace the beauty of this world and the people in it.
— H.K. Topping (London Investment Banker, Founder of Eliza Zuben, Adventurer)

I love the enthusiasm of the movement. The brand, the riders, the community behind Vivida. There’s so much positivity coming out from both the online presence and on the water. The products are of the highest quality and very well thought of; particularly the poncho towels, wetsuits and watergear... womens’ bikinis! All so functional yet beautiful. Last but not least Vivida’s lifestyle videos are inspiring and carry a strong sense of wanderlust and adventure... Something that really expresses what Vivida is about. Viva Vivida!

Lo que me gusta de Vivida es la conexión con la naturaleza, la sensación de felicidad y espiritualidad que transmiten todos sus riders, imágenes, videos. Transmiten una forma y estilo de vida muy especial, y diferente a otras marcas. La verdad es que me siento muy identificado con el estilo de vida que transmite la marca. Me encantaría poder formar parte de ello, y poder colaborar con ustedes.
— J. P. Casasnovas
Vivida has given me freedom and security when it comes to enjoying kiting in the sun! Vidida promotes individuality and never giving up. Wear vivida. Follow vivida. Dream and achieve big with vivida. Thank you for giving me confidence on the water!
— H. Wright

The Vivida lifestyle is about living your dreams, being adventurous and living your most passionate fulfilled life.
I believe I interpret it by living the life of my dreams, taking the risk of leaving the corporate world 5 years ago to live and work my passions of Yoga teaching, PT, holistic therapies and opening a watersports company.
I’m constantly pushing my limits to expand my businesses and also myself in my own wakesurf/ wakeboard riding, fitness, Yoga and spiritual practice.
— S. Mullet

Vivida Lifestyle lo interpreto como un espíritu libre... es una forma de pensar, una forma de vivir, una pasión, es hacer lo que te gusta, es hacer lo que te hace feliz. ! Es un estilo de vida impulsado por nuestros sueños.
— Noe Borkowski (Kitesurfer, Owner Mauna Kitelife)
Kitesurf bikini
For me, Vivida represents kindness, freedom, wanderlust and happiness. It means pushing ourselves, being proud of who we are, and living a fulfilled life. Vivida can be both simple, and grandiose. Riding your kite, hiking, going cliff jumping, watching sunsets, spending a day at the beach, being splashed by the waves, feeling the wind in your hair, sea your skin changing because of salty water…. Vivida is more than a brand; it’s a state of mind, a vibe, a philosophy. In fact, when I think of Vivida, I can picture my vision of life, and I think that’s why I already feel so connected to it.
— A. Chevrier (Adventurer, Teacher, Kitesurfer, Elite Netball Coach)

Hey David! You probably never heard about me. Well, like you are, I’m a real passionate boardsporter, mainly kitesurfing. I’m following you/Vivida since the beginning. Awesome how you first launched the full Vivida movie and connected the brand campaign. Big riders have been showing their for Vivida ever since, nice!! The cool thing is that you are completely living the brand’s vision, instead of sitting behind the desk all day to make all of this happen. Tell me about it! Cheers, Bob.
— B. De Bruin (Founder Saltnflocks, Kitesurfer)
VIVIDA es una marca increíble. Todos sus productos son de una calidad excepcional. Cuando empezamos a trabajar en MASKITE, nuestras tienda de Kite y Surf en La Manga (España), quisimos introducir una marca con la calidad y la forma de llevar la marca que tienen. Y no dudamos en elegir VIVIDA, siendo de las pocas tiendas de España que trabajaban con ella. Y fue un EXITO. La gente adora las camisetas, las lycras, los poncho, los bikinis, los neoprenos... y nosotros seguiremos apostando por la marca y creciendo con ellos.
— M. Cano (Owner of MasKite shop)
I don’t think there’s a better brand that I’d want to be apart of. From the customer service, the simplicity of the website and the kindness of the people who run it. Vivida’s products are of the highest quality and the diversity in the clothing is outstanding. Lastly, the Vivida team and community are as friendly and as fun as you can imagine. There is never a boring day around them!
— J. Fulton (Kitesurfer, Student)
Vivida is like a moving body of positivity and ideas that is constantly evolving and changing.
— E. Zuben
Vivida Lifestyle to me is not just about having a passion for sport but it is for having a passion for living. The Vivida lifestyle is deserved to be felt by everyone and the thrill of living should exhilarate many, to me having a lifestyle that excites me is my priority and is something that I value the most. Every moment in life is an opportunity and taking risks is the way to making the most of it. The Vivida community is something that I have been searching for and being part of a team and to feel such peace and happiness when doing the things I believe i am made to do excites me. Vivida is a mindset that i would love to carry with me and explore all the possibilities.
— N. Moceviciute
Viva la vida, o vivi la vita as I say in italian, it’s exactley the way I do interpretate my life. Live my life to the fullest enjoying each moment and be in contact with the nature as much as I can, through the sport.
— S. Timpano
Vivida is not only a brand that connects people around the world with similar lifestyles. It also connects them with the ocean by practicing watersports and staying active and healthy. Thanks to Vivida a lot of people are discovering a new passion, a new lifestyle, and making new friends.
Vivida creates active wear that not only is super comfortable and high quality but it is also made of recycled materials. Thank you Vivida for taking care of our planet. This world needs more brands like Vivida.
— S. Such
Having fun without being perfect, changing myself because I want to, living my life how I want it without losing track and my goals, dreaming and doing all I can for achiving my dreams even if it comes on detours and just loving what I do. That’s Vivida Lifestyle for me!
