Higher Tides was born from the ocean, but our surf lifestyle doesn’t stop where the land meets the sea. We see waves in everything we do – cruising down the sidewalk, shredding at the skate park, or doing simple everyday things. We reflect a surf anything movement, where it doesn’t matter if you have wheels, fins, a board, or just your body, so long as you’re having a blast doing your thing.

While only being formally founded in 2016, we have been living this type lifestyle for the better part of 20 years. Our laid back approach and hand drawn graphics focus on design, style, and originality and feature our love for the world around us. We hope to bring you new and exciting forms of product to help you express yourself to the people around you on your own adventures, all while making a minimal impact on our environment. You can come here to read about our latest adventures, or just find something to take along with you on your journey through life.

Missy is stoked on life! While always on the search for the best longboard-friendly wave, she loves to draw and paint on a daily basis, obtaining her inspiration from the ocean. Surfing is a major part of Missy's life, as it is her (and most surfers) escape from reality. "There's no other feeling like it," she says, "something about sitting out in the lineup when it's calm, staring at the horizon, and patiently waiting for the next set to roll through. That time between sets is magical."
