I began working on the ocean when I moved to Aruba from Miami, FL. Started off working under watersports station on the beach in front of Marriott Surf Club and became an all-around guy from driving boats, to handling jetski rentals. Over the last few years, I had been wanting to do my own thing and have my cousins Bryon and Kyle by my side. Finally, I got my chance thanks to my father helping out to start this business – and here we are now, Ocean bound!
