Rockerline lifestyle clothing has appeared in the press again this month featured in an editorial in Gossip Magazine.
The article reads:
How long u lived in Anston?
I have lived in and out of Anston since the age of 8. I love this place and what it stands for. My family has been here for generations.
Is this a trick question! I live for those days which bring wind, waves and snow. I love the elements and flowing with natures routes, lines, and waves. Ive just started getting into climbing with Matt but you can often find me windsurfing, kiting, snowboarding or surfing.
What made u start in business?
I’ve always thought that entrepreneurs were big worldly figures, and that the skills I had didn’t match those required to start a business, but after 20 years of dreaming about the idea, the only way to find out was to take a punt. That’s when I hooked up with long term friend and Business partner Matt Bartlam. We share a passion for the elements, so based on that common goal we started Rockerline clothing.
Who came up with name Rockerline?
We worked on the name for months, but every brand name we thought of was already taken, I spent countless hours researching a name that would capture the essence of the sports we love.
What’s it about?
The idea and name were always there, staring us right in the face, the pivotal part of a Surfboard, the pivotal part of a windsurf board, the pivotal part of a kite board. The rockerline!
Where do u see ya self in 2 years?
In two years we are hoping to be established at key festivals and events, such as the Boardmasters in Newquay, and would be stoked to see our clothes worn by those who share our passion for just getting out there and getting amongst it.
Do your family share the same interests?
Family life is nuts, we have the philosophy of giving everything a go, and if you don’t like it then at least you tried. My lad is keen on his scooter and loves his skateboard, and my daughter, well she’s tried sailing though to gymnastics! As for my wife, she’s stoked to be part of it all.
What do you think to having a local mag like gossip?
It’s always cool to get the low down on your village especially if we can help grow the local economy and support local businesses. All our work is local and we look after those who have helped us out on the way and especially won’t forget those as we plan for world domination!
Have you got any merchandise for sale yet?
Our website is live and we are adding products every month. Hoodies and beanies are fresh in for the autumn.
