Long time Mizu Ambassador and local artist and muralist Skye Walker individually collaborated with each Mizu Ambassador to create a graphic that captures their unique personalities and love for adventure. This collection of six bottles will be released one at a time over the next few weeks, giving each the spotlight it deserves. One percent of all bottle sales will go to a non-profit hand-picked by each Ambassador.
"Nature is my biggest inspiration and nothing is more powerful than seeing a big mountain or a vast ocean. This piece connects both in a clean, geometric vibe (since we are all connected through sacred geometry). I hope this art inspires others to enjoy their adventures and they also remember to leave nothing behind as they leave with amazing memories provided by Mother Nature."

Plastic Free Seas
Liz learned to sail at seven years old in San Diego, California on a little red sailing dinghy. She credits the origin of her environmental concerns to her exposure to the contrasting landscapes of grave pollution and radical natural beauty while sailing in Mexico. At fifteen, her love of the ocean and natural athletic inclination led her to try surfing. She surfed competitively for many years before committing to sailing and ultimately earning her title as Captain Liz.
"The artwork on my bottle is a tribute to my many years of nomadic ocean lifestyle, exploring the Pacific with my cat aboard my sailboat, Swell. I hope the artwork inspires people to seek new experiences, protect our planet, and chase their dreams."

A Ti’a Matairea Island Protectors
“I’m a Hawaii-based creative and deeply curious human here practicing courage. I come from a small island in the Pacific and I’m still not quite sure how I got to live a life bigger than I ever dreamed of. For the last 3 years I’ve been hiking, diving, surfing, slacklining, and photographing my way through 53 countries and counting. I’m proud to be supported by some of my favorite brands like Canon USA, Adobe, and give preference to creating content for companies doing good. Self-improvement, outdoor adventure, and creativity make me SUPER excited and I get to share some of my journey exploring all three both on here and on my instagram.”
"My bottle is a tribute to the forces that shaped me - the majestic cliffs of my home island and my first time diving with a humpback whale. My hope is that this bottle reminds the owner of the splendor and interconnectedness of our land and ocean environments."

Todd Glaser is a San Diego-born photographer, surfer, and waterman. He is prolific for his young age, earning more than a dozen covers during his tenure at SURFER magazine. When he isn’t globetrotting chasing swells, treading water shooting in the tropics, or capturing images of the first wave ever ridden at Kelly Slater’s Surf Ranch, Glaser can be found riding waves around his home, riding his bike, and enjoying the company of his wife, Jenna.
"The graphic on the bottle is an illustration of one of my favorite images highlighting the unique landscape and perfect waves found at Blacks Beach in San Diego. When Mizu asked about bringing this image to life, I knew I wanted to collaborate with Skye Walker. I’m a huge fan of his use of color and imaginative style, and knew with his magic touch we could make a piece that both celebrates the original image and his artistic eye."

Rob Machado Foundation
Mizu’s co-founder and retired professional snowboarder, Jussi Oksanen is a multi-talented legend when it comes to adventures. In 2015 when Jussi retired from professional sports he took up a passion for photography. Since then he has worked with industry leading brands on brand identity, photography and storytelling. These days you can catch him cycling on the 101 in southern California and shooting content along the way.
“In the last 10 years, I have spent a lot of time in the Eastern Sierra, it has become one of my favorite places to go. This graphic was created from a photo that I took of Hot Creek. It’s a beautiful river that runs through a valley with the eastern Sierra as a backdrop... one of my all-time favorite views. I'm stoked to have it on the bottle and with me at all times.”
