Surfing has had an intense influence on our lives. It’s taken us to places we never imagined, connected us with people we love and inspired the launch of our business. All this and a lot more, from riding a board on a bump of energy in the ocean.
Urban Barrels exists from the discomfort we found ourselves in when away from the ocean for an extended period of time. We needed that creative and meditative energy that surfing provided. We tapped into it by skating through a city or walking the streets and seeing barrels in bus shelters, over-grown trees or murals painted on walls. Turns out, a lot of people have these moments when their touring a city or just getting outside.
Urban Barrels launched in 2014. I’ll be using this platform to share our story as we go and highlight the highs and lows along the way.
