HOW IT ALL BEGAN

THE HISTORY OF RIP OFFSHORE PRODUCTS

John Nau and Kris Jurek have been fishing and hunting from a very young age. Being from Texas, these two things are just part of life down here in the South. Both John and Kris have a deep love for fishing blue water and have been to various locations around the globe. From fishing for the draught horse of the billfish world, the Pacific Black Marlin off the waters of Panama, live baiting football sized yellowfin off the islands of Hawaii looking for the grander of a lifetime, to pulling skirts for blue dogs, sails and wahoo here in our own backyard, the Gulf of Mexico. We here at Rip Offshore Products aim to create innovative new products to give you, the angler, the edge that you need whether fishing in big money tourneys or just for the hell of it.
