Our Story

TAK Waterman® was founded in 2016 by two New Jersey natives and is a locally owned and operated lifestyle brand specializing in fishing and surfing gear for the everyday waterman, with a focus on performance, quality, and comfort.


Why we decided to call our company TAK Waterman®

Long Branch, New Jersey is where it all began, specifically Takanasee Beach affectionately known by locals as "TAK," a rare spot in New Jersey where the small fresh water lake meets the ocean. Everyone has that special spot where they caught their first fish or their first wave. We wanted to pay tribute to the place that instilled our passion for the outdoors, and so TAK Waterman was born!
