Our Story

Since that first introduction to the ocean, we've been hooked.  The sea and waves, simply, make us feel good.  Urban Barrels is an extension of that connection, in any and all environments.  It is a way for adventurers, of all sorts, to look at the world through a new lens.  It's about discovering what lights us up inside and tapping into it whenever we can and wherever we are. 
We are inspired by people who have blurred the lines between passion and profession.  People that commit to their own ideas and pursue them with purpose.  These people inspire us in every story we tell, product we make and photo we share.
Thanks for stopping by.
