Sharing the California lifestyle all over the globe

Our Story

The Great Recession of 2008 was the best thing that ever happened to us. We lost all hope of finding a career out of college and ended up on the beach, unemployed. With nothing to lose, we took a leap of faith and started a small ocean adventure company.

Our Story

That’s us, Chris Lynch and Michael Samer. Everyday California began as little more than a few kayaks, an old pick-up truck, and a few guys running discounted adventure tours, booking appointments in between cleaning gear and taking people out on the water.

After some success, we found a space to open up our first shop. It was just larger than 500 square feet and had a ton of, well, let’s call it “character.” But it was a start.

Since then, we’ve found a much larger space, expanded our brand into apparel and lifestyle products, and are living our original dream: to share the California lifestyle with everyone around the world.


To us, California is more than a place. From North to South, it stands for the massive forests full of towering Sequoias to rocky beaches with walking access only, from the tech giants in Silicon valley to mom-and-pop stores selling overstuffed sandwiches down the street from our shop.

We hope you’ll join us in our mission to share California with the rest of the world.

Giving Back to Keep Nature Gorgeous

Through our partnership with 1% For The Planet, Everyday California is able to donate a portion of every purchase made to organizations like Greenwave, who’s mission is to build a new blue-green economy that creates jobs, mitigates climate change, and grows healthy food for local communities through 3D Ocean Farming. We are committed to preserving and protecting the ocean and it’s marine life, which gave us our start as a company.
