About us

From a University feasibility study on cotton surf shorts called Bermuda Baggies, Makin Waves has grown to be the biggest active lifestyle retailer in Bermuda. For over 30 years we have been committed to bringing top brands to the Bermuda market, and are focused on a constant evolution of our product mix as styles shift, and the needs of our customers evolve. With an emphasis on activities in, on, and under the water, we take pride in selling clothing brands that we wear daily, and products that we personally use while enjoying Bermuda's waters, be it paddle boarding, boating, snorkeling, spear fishing, diving, or just hangin' at the pool or beach.
