More Story than Store 

From our staff to custom fixtures, from the products we offer to the lifestyle we promote, the WaterShed is filled with great stories that are the fabric of this fabled coastline.  The WaterShed is based on a place that holds great pride in Hawaii’s coastal communities: the accessory shed where every waterman and waterwoman houses their “tools” for maximizing adventure.

We are proud that the WaterShed features all locally designed and crafted custom fixtures – many cleverly created out of repurposed local woods

and materials, handmade by members of our community.

Showcase local artists

We carefully select our product and favour brands that continue to be great partners with the North Shore and represent the nature of life here.  Whenever possible, we support local artists, designers, and small business.  Featured brands include Quiksilver Waterman Collection, Roxy, Vans, Volcom, RVCA, OluKai footwear, L-Space, Maji, Acacia, Maui Jim, Surfer The Bar, an exclusive line of Turtle Bay gear plus a collection of local artisan jewelry, art, photos and books that give you that authentic connection to our fabled North Shore.
