Mike Coots X Project Hiu (LIMITED EDITION)

MATERIALS USED IN (F1 RACING, AERO SPACE CRAFTS AND NOW DIVE BLADES)

Inspired by: Mike Coots

MADE IN AUSTRALIA 


    When Mike Coots was 18, he was attacked by a tiger shark while bodyboarding off the coast of Kauai. He lost most of his right leg, and nearly lost his life. 

    • In 2010, Mike worked to pass legislation making it illegal to possess shark fins in Hawaii – the first law of its kind in the US. Other states soon followed.
    • He also studied to be a professional photographer. His striking images start conversations about sharks on social media, a style best described as visual journalism.

    PERFORMANCE

    The hybrid carbon fibre coupled with state-of-the-art design and aerospace grade fabric combine to create a fin that transfers load to the larger muscle groups, instead of focusing on any one specific location. Carbon fibre blades are extremely light weight whilst enhancing diving propulsion and performance, propelling divers at superior speed and velocity. 

    WHO ARE THESE BLADES FOR?

    Divers looking for premium underwater performance, responsiveness and propulsion power. 

    Note: Carbon fibre blades are extremely light weight whilst enhancing diving propulsion and performance, propelling divers at superior speed and velocity

    Transparency 

    A core goal that has been set from day one of starting Project Hiu was to be 100% transparent with Our Crew. Our team know all too well the feeling of blindly giving to an organisation hoping the intentions and actions are taken out as proposed. Our goal is to breakdown these barriers and invite you 'The Crew Member' along this journey. By purchasing a Project Hiu product or donating, you will be accepted into a community dedicated to updating via email and social platforms on annual goals, progression and benchmarks, you will also gain access to first hand interviews of community members their feedback on the impact Project Hiu and its Crew Members is having on their lives. Please refer to 'Join The Crew' section for further reference to  where we are investing your donation/ purchase funds.

    Post purchase process:

    1. You purchase/donate
    2. We allocate funds towards annual impact goals (Refer to 'Join The Crew' for more...)
    3. You receive constant updates on goal progress and community impact via email and social updates.

    Empowerment & Responsibility

    The intent and aim of these fins is to help raise awareness and financial aid and continue our projects mission; improve the health of our oceans, by starting with those responsible for its deterioration. By purchasing this product you become responsible for educating those in need of enlightenment on the severity of our oceans deteriorating state. 

    What's My Actual Impact? 

    Many shark fishermen in Indonesia depend on extremely volatile and dangerous income streams to provide for their families and loved ones. Today fishermen are forced to travel further and in some cases in illegal water to seek more prosperous grounds, this new threat of prosecution can be combated. By joining The Crew you will be assisting in the investment and acquisition of new 'sustainable income assets' such as; tourism, waste management programs, early learning to better equip the next generation for changing times and finally supporting the community during this transition by suppling food, clean water and any other financial burdens and malnourished necessities incurred from a history of volatile fishing and marine exploitation.

    Many shark fishermen in Indonesia depend on extremely volatile and dangerous income streams to provide for their families and loved ones. Today fishermen are forced to travel further and in some cases in illegal water to seek more prosperous grounds, this new threat of prosecution can be combated. By joining The Crew you will be assisting in the investment and acquisition of new 'sustainable income assets' such as; tourism, waste management programs, early learning to better equip the next generation for changing times and finally supporting the community during this transition by suppling food, clean water and any other financial burdens and malnourished necessities incurred from a history of volatile fishing and marine exploitation. 

    WHAT ARE WE INVESTING IN? (YOUR IMPACT)

    1) A sustainable tourism program, that allows local fishermen to acquire and re-purpose their assets (boats, crew, knowledge, rich biodiversity) to build new independent income streams.  

    2) Currently locals have no waste initiative or infrastructure in place, resulting in (HIGH) threats of disease and sickness. Our Crew are investing in waste management programs that employ Xfishermen to collect, recycle and transport waste opposed to entering and being dumped in our oceans. We are also building the first 'toilet block' on the island.

    3) Early learning; our crew are investing in a new preschool re-build and learning equipment and curriculums to better prepare future generation for change.

    4) During Covid-19 transition has been difficult, by supporting, your allocation of funds will also go toward basic supplies like food (rice, noodles) that are deposited monthly to our community. 

    WHY OUR FINS:

    1 - State-of-the-art design and aerospace grade fabric resulting in enhanced durability and performance.

    2 - Customised hybrid carbon system resulting in unique fin design, strength and pattern.

    3 - 2 Year warranty

    4 - Carbon fins are more efficient than plastic fins or composite with a better snap, and a better choice for divers who are going deeper and looking to significantly enhance their underwater performance. 

    5 - The ergonomic angle in the base of the blade aids streamlining, making both surface swimming and deep diving extremely efficient.


    Without an apex predator, i.e. sharks a marine ecosystem cannot sustain healthy balance and therefore results in disease spread and infection through fish populations, this inevitably transcends onto land and into our communities a loved ones.
