About Gray Robinson
Gray was born in Bermuda, but moved to British Columbia as a child
his mother, brother, and sister. Gray had always been adventurous, but in the great country of Canada, he truly blossomed as an outdoorsman. It was during this time that Gray developed an interest in extreme sports that would last a lifetime.
Once he was old enough to drive, Gray saved up for a VW Westfalia and ventured across the country rock climbing, Mountain Biking, snowboarding, and ice climbing. By the time he was 19, he had found his way back to the ocean where he became a certified SCUBA instructor. Just two years later, Gray moved to Australia where he taught diving lessons.
Gray’s experience as a SCUBA instructor, and, later, as the leader of an international kitesurfing school, led him to question the assumption that wetsuits had to be made out of environmentally destructive neoprene. Today, Gray leads a team looking to provide the highest performance wetsuits on the planet, allowing people to spend more time enjoying the watersports he’s dedicated his life to. At the same time, he wanted to create the most environmentally friendly wetsuit so that he could give back to the planet that has given him so much. GrayActiva is the culmination of that project.
