Our Story

Rip Current Sports was founded in 2020 by swim instructor and entrepreneur, Jose Gallagher.

Jose’s goal was to manufacture a new swimming product made for all swimmers, from the very beginner to the advanced swimmer. Recognizing the need for products to help develop buoyancy, body position and kick, he created Dual Boards. 

Since their inception, training with Dual Boards has helped beginners swimmers surf the water, and intermediate and advanced swimmers improve their body position and beat their goal times.

Today Rip Current Sports strives daily to create the foundation of this start-up business; made by a swimmer and for all swimmers!
