Meet Rhett
Rhett grew up playing in the Chechesee river outside the coastal town of Beaufort, SC. His love affair with the water took a distinct turn when his mother discovered an early 60s Con long board at a yard sale, forever shaping his future. After attending college in the mountains, Rhett missed the ocean and moved west to Orange County, CA, traveled throughout Central America and eventually moved to Costa Rica with Sarah, the love of his life. The two settled in Charleston, SC and gave birth to two babies: their son Finley and their business, Rogue Wave.

Rogue Wave is a culmination of the influences throughout Rhett’s life. By mixing the worlds of his wholesome southern upbringing with the cool surf culture of southern California, he has created an oasis for the Surfing Gentleman, an aesthetic he calls “Hemingway goes surfing.”
