The artifacts of adventure

The chase for Roark began out of a desire to tell stories born of adventure and discovery in the form of a man - he’s the bar-brawling adventurer that disappears into Mexico for six months camping, only to surface in Paris drinking Bordeaux with a diplomat’s daughter.  Each season we find Roark in a different part of the world, telling stories of his exploits within our product, on social platforms and in a printed book at retail. Inspired by the culture and climate of Roark’s destination, we produce two collections per year of clothing, luggage and trinkets - the artifacts of adventure.  The product and stories we create empower people to discover self through authentic, irreverent, dangerous and purposeful adventure on the road less traveled.

HOW TO LIVE DELIBERATELY WITH KARINA PETRONI

HOW TO LIVE DELIBERATELY WITH KARINA PETRONI

On our recent trip to Jamaica, a friend of the family named Karina Petroni joined the crew to write about the adventure at hand. Karina’s role on the trip quickly grew beyond the pen & notepad, displaying (and often utilizing) her talents as a former professional surfer, world class freediver, and spearfisherman.

ORACABESSA FISH SANCTUARY

ORACABESSA FISH SANCTUARY

A man in a spring suit sharpens the tip of a spear by the dock. A joint possibly hangs out of his mouth, my memory evades me. He points out a large grouper beneath the dock. I nod, thinking little about the significance of the large predator swimming idly beneath us. That large fish, I would soon learn, isn't as common as one might expect in this part of the Caribbean.

ROARK PRESENTS: NATE ZOLLER IN CAMINO ABIERTO

Skipping town to uncover rare waves in fickle environments. "I have this problem with not letting a forecast go. From the time a swell comes onto my radar until the last set breaks my mind wanders through a maze of untapped fortune. It starts with the question; is it worth it?"
