In 2009, I embarked on capturing my passion for fishing and wave riding through a line of T-shirts and creative items. Our shared love for the sea often makes us feel like creatures of the water. As a child, I was affectionately called a "fish" due to my unwavering connection with the ocean.
Searching for a word that encapsulated this bond, I found "uroko," meaning "fish scales" in Japanese. This resonated with the cultural reverence for the sea I witnessed during my time in Japan. Thus, uroko was born, celebrating the fervor ocean enthusiasts share.
I dedicate uroko to my grandfather, John Gregerson, who ignited my love for the sea through fishing adventures. He shaped me into the person I am today.
