Providing equal access to the Canadian outdoors
West Coast Gear was founded at the beginning of 2020 with the mission to provide international visitors access to the outdoors and all the camping gear they need in an economical way. They want to make sure everyone, from beginners to experienced campers, from locals to international visitors, has an equal opportunity to experience the beautiful west coast of Canada.
Because of the timing of the pandemic, West Coast Gear has been mainly providing locals with camping gear for different, smaller trails. At the same time, they’re working on partnerships and ways to support local businesses that are interested in the outdoors.
We had the pleasure of interviewing Johann Boraks, the founder of West Coast Gear, and talking about why he decided to move to Rentle.
