French watersports and wetsuit brand Manera has signed Hawaiian surfer Braiden Maither to their ambassador team. Watch his welcome vid below.
Growing up on Maui, surfing quickly became his way of life. However, his career came to a screeching halt when he was diagnosed with a rare and crippling form of arthritis at 18. Simply walking was painful, and he was told he might never surf again.
Braiden defied the odds, and he can now spend countless hours on his board. He also loves to capture and show these authentic moments that he will never take for granted again.
Whether on the water or at home editing footage, Braiden is driven by his passion and creativity.
