When Gary Ross founded Highwave in 1983 it was his lifelong love of nature and the ocean that inspired both the name and direction of his company. Born into a family of inventors and raised near the beaches of Southern California, Gary grew up fascinated by the dynamic movement of the ocean's waves. Nearly 36 years and more than 40 patents later, the veteran surfer and devoted conservationist, husband and father still draws from that perfection for his original, award winning designs. Today, Gary, his wife, Diana, and their two kids, Griffin and Shannon, all work together to design and deliver products that keep the spirit of innovation alive.

Highwave has been creating products to help humans live in harmony with our planet since 1983. Everything from our travel mugs for humans, to our travel mugs for dogs has been designed to respect the Earth and its natural resources. In 2019, we upped our commitment to a healthier ecosystem by joining 1% For The Planet. That means 1% of every sale will go to non-profits focused on healing our environment.
