Our guests this week are two long-time friends that took different paths in the surf world and eventually ended up working together 20 years later.

Our second guest also rips and charges who has spent many years traveling, living in Hawaii and Bali in search of perfect waves. In 1998 while living in Bali he befriended a factory owner who taught him the fundamentals of production and with a few dollars to his name, selling some surfboards in helping to fund a small batch of boardshorts, and the rest is history. Fast forward to today, over 2 decades later, this self-made hardworking entrepreneur, has built an incredible private label business which is a leader in premium quality apparel for men, women, kids, and toddlers.
