FREEDOM + SPONTANEITY. Enhanced by

routines


AT PROTEKT WE BELIEVE STRONG ROOTS BEGIN WITH STRONG ROUTINES. WE BELIEVE THAT EACH PERSON’S JOURNEY IS UNIQUE TO THEM, AND NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE IN YOUR JOURNEY THE SAME FOUNDATION IS REQUIRED TO ACHIEVE YOUR DAILY MAXIMUM POTENTIAL.


Protekt is more than just eco friendly sunscreen and performance supplements. Our founding team has been truly fortunate to serve with, work with and cross paths with some truly amazing human beings over the years. Our routines newsletter was created in an effort to share the knowledge and life-experience possessed by our little community of friends and family. Our goal is to expand our community and hopefully inspire others to share their passion and expertise. We believe this is the true gift that technology and social media provide when used for the betterment of others: a free platform to learn, improve, and challenge ourselves to truly experience all that life has to offer.

mark healey

Father. Husband. Brother. Waterman. Outdoorsman. Mark Healey is one of those people who seems to be able to do it all and makes it look easy. But once you get to know him, you realize his “secret to success” is good old fashioned hard work. This is a man with a plan for everything he does, whether it be solo spearfishing trips on the waverunner, spot and stalk bow-hunting into public land wilderness, or paddling out into monster surf. Mark is a stoic who takes life one day at a time, and we have become big fans of his outlook, lifestyle, and discipline to the basics. We are proud to call Mark a partner here at Protekt Products.

nathan florence

Nate might just be one of the most likeable people we have ever met. Always positive, always active, and always up for anything, this is the human you want with you on any adventure. We all know he can surf just about anything as well as anyone, but what blew us all away at Protekt was his insane workout regimen he puts together to destroy himself and some of the gnarliest personalities on the North Shore. Well-balanced routines keep this guy prepared for 3 wave hold downs at Jaws. Don’t let his smile and care-free attitude fool you, this guy gets after it. This lifestyle of extremes made Nate the perfect test-pilot for Protekt’s sunscreen lineup – trust us: if it works for him, it will work for you!

moana jones

One of our founders met Moana at Sunset Beach Jiu Jitsu, where she is a regular and holds her own with some of the toughest people on the island. As if that wasn’t enough, we later ran into her and her family as they completed the Moloaki to Oahu paddle race covering nearly 33 miles of treacherous open ocean. Once you get to know Moana Jones, it’s easy to see how her tenacity and humble personality have landed her one of the coveted spots in the lineup at Pipeline. She credits her success to her dedication to fitness and pushing herself outside of her comfort zones. She just won O’Neills prestigious “Overall Performance of the Year” award for the 2019-2020 season, and was signed by Volcom to join their surf team. Look out for big things from this young woman in 2020!
