From Home Garage to the World's Waterways
Florida local Steve Elder grew up on the water. Whether kayaking in the ocean or motorboating around lakes—water sports are part of his DNA. In 2013, Steve started selling paddle boards out of his home garage with a vision to shake up the SUP industry. iROCKER quickly became the go-to option for paddle boarders globally, offering quality gear people could use again and again. Since then, Steve has pioneered the launch of two additional SUP brands as well as a variety of water sports gear, and helped people to create millions of memories on the water.
Hi, I’m Steve, and I lead a passionate team of outdoor lovers to deliver great experiences both on and off the water.
For the past eight years, I’ve dedicated myself to building iROCKER from the ground up, and we’re now a global water sports brand with outstanding year-on-year growth.
As Founder and CEO, I have a broad skill set ranging from marketing and operations to revenue acceleration and stakeholder management. Yet, it’s product development and leadership that light my soul on fire.
You see, a company is nothing without stellar products and a cohesive, capable team to get them in front of customers. At iROCKER we are focused on creating gear that allows people to experience the outdoors— gear people are proud to call theirs.
I lead with optimism and a strong vision while empowering those around me to take ownership, be bold, and maintain a customer-centric mindset.
I also happen to know some of the best fishing spots in Florida.
