Our Mission

BE AN OUTSIDER

We don’t fit in and we don’t want to. Society stagnates us into believing to settle, accept, and believe what others feed us like some absurd robot. We expect our government to take care of us, doctors to fix us, schools to teach us, and places of worship to tell us who God is. The fact is, until we are in those situations where we are unable of take care of ourselves, we do not need these places like we think we do. Because lurking inside of each and every one of us is an amazing untapped ability to thrive and grow no matter what the situation is. Finding that self-reliance is what being an Outsider is all about.

Wilderness and Waves is an outdoor company dedicated to developing your own self-reliance through two main areas. One is preparedness in knowing what to do when the unexpected happens, thus gaining confidence no matter where you are at. The other is rediscovering your natural potential on how you are made so you can thrive more as a human being. Much of our own potential lies dormant due to the anxiety that comes from not knowing what to do in an emergency, along with an over dependence on technology which undercuts our primal capabilities. Through the outdoors, preparation, and the right stress put on us, we expand these abilities to perform better in life no matter what is thrown our way. So don’t conform! Get outside of your comfort zone today and Be an Outsider…
