Pau Pilau is a fantastic product. We here at Kula Nalu Ocean sports have been using this product for about 3 years and we have had stellar results.
Our ocean sports students always have a fresh wetsuit to put on and they wear it with confidence. We often say we experience two types of surfers, the ones who pee in their wetsuits, and the ones who lie about it! By using Pau Pilau we don’t have to worry about a thing. We depend on this product to provide fresh sanitized wetsuits for our clients. We also have saved a ton of money preserving the suits due to this product keeping the colors bright and the neoprene soft.

We at Kula Nalu, have been a key element to the Mauli Ola Foundation providing equipment with surf experience days for patients with genetic disorders. The need for a sanitary environment is crucial for the cystic fibrosis patients and Pau Pilau has been a huge help by giving back, they have been providing product to help us keep the patients safe with an organic solution to sanitation.

We as well as the best surfers in the world highly recommend this product to everyone who uses wetsuit.

Thanks guys for all you Do!

This stuff works great! We used to use enzyme cleaners on stinky dive gear but this product is superior. I highly recommend it. It takes the stink out. We even use it in the laundry with smelly undergarments.

I tell my kids the Wet Suit is like Las Vegas, What happens in the Suit stays in the Suit..

I live in New Hampshire and travel almost an hour and a half to the Maine Coast to surf and you have to wear a wet suit year round. Sometimes It get home late at night and forget the suits in the car and the next day it is disgusting. Thanks to Pau Pilau, its a piece of cake, so easy and works so well.

I love this stuff, it is Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

I am completely sold on your product… I can’t believe the difference it made for our wetsuits and my kids’ incredibly smelly booties. The neoprene comes out so fresh and rubbery, like new, and the booties don’t smell anymore.

Thank you :)

To the crew at Pau Pilau, thank you so much for making such a killer cleaning product for my wetsuits. I have been using Pau Pilau for more than a year now and always knew it was good for my wetsuits, but it wasn’t until last weekend that I realized how good this product really is.
My buddy and I went surfing and he forgot his wetsuit in my van so I told him I would clean it for him. When I took it out of his bag it smelled so bad I could hardly even touch it. After soaking it in Pau Pilau for more than 20 minutes I hung it up to dry and now it smells and feels like a new wetsuit. Thank you for making a product for our wetsuits that not only makes them smell good but also removes all the dirty bacteria from the water.



Removed the funk from my Patagonia R2. This is what they suggest using in Patagonia company surf stores, too.

Used to wash wetsuit in washing machine to get rid of smell. Do need to do it anymore. Great product.

I got a rip curl f-bomb that I forgot all about during snowboarding season and was to lazy to clean! It was in my shed for 3 months in a plastic bag! I tried the rip curl cleaner piss off, but that **** (Edited)sucked! I’m ordering a 32oz bottle of pau pilau! If this stuff works and restores my wetsuit back to its epic flexible, soft, and non-smelly condition, expect me to buy even more! And tell everyone about it!!

The product worked incredibly. Within 2 washes it removed all of the smell, and amazingly it restored its stretchiness and put my rough neoprene back to its smooth and softness. Pretty awesome, I’ve told all my friends and local shops about Pau Pilau and will totally continue too. You rock dude!
