More than just a brand, it's a lifestyle! Hawaii Polo Life is a global brand that fuses ocean and polo culture showcasing the beauty of Hawai'i. Created by its owner, Christopher Dawson, in 2012 as a tribute to the historic, luxurious, and highly adorned Hawaiian Polo athletes; Hawaii Polo Life is built with a mission to unite the Polo community, the Aloha Spirit and the beauty of Hawai'i.
Founder and Visionary of Hawaii Polo Life (HPL) and the President and Founder of the Hawai'i International Polo Association (HIPA), Christopher Dawson has taken his passion for polo and has turned it into a clothing brand that fuses the ocean and polo cultures of Hawai'i. Additionally, Chris was the first USPA Circuit Governor to term out off his position. After 10 years of sitting on the board of the USPA Chris was inspired to re-energize the sport in Hawai'i and started the HPL Polo Player Exchange program. Since 2015 Chris has been bringing in pros from all over the globe to play polo in Hawai'i and was the first person to sponsor an All-Pro team. Chris now travels the world to play polo with world-class players.
It began as a magazine publication that focused on blending ocean culture with word-class polo in Hawai'i, with a targeted audience of travelers, lifestyle aficionados and fashionistas. It soon expanded its brand by creating a line of polo related apparel worn by players and sold to attendees of its annual polo tournament. As popularity of the event and apparel grew, so did its expansion and signature collection. It is now comprised primarily of numerous lines of apparel, ranging from athletic wear and related products for both men and women. The common thread among all of them is the brand’s vision of fusing ocean and polo culture showcasing the beauty of Hawai'i. The brand, in conjunction with Hawaii Polo Productions is also the producer of various equestrian events that bring in the world’s best polo athletes to the state of Hawai'i.
