A Coastal Apparel Brand is Born

July of 2017

It's a hot Sunday morning in Mount Pleasant, SC. We wake up, have a coffee on the front porch and smell the salty air. It's slightly overcast but won't be for much longer. Thirty minutes go by and you can feel the sun starting to do its thing. Our kids are down in the driveway playing with the baby crabs that make their way from the marsh. Sullivan's Island is on the agenda for the day and our family of five is ready to go make some memories.

We take a quick drive, cross over the Isle of Palms Connector and stare across the Intracoastal waterway and the beautiful green marsh. We cross Breach Inlet and make our way over to Station 22 on Sullivan's Island. It was a fantastic beach day with our family and we knew this was a special place.

Once our skin was salty and burnt enough we took a walk down middle street and sat down on Mex 1's crowded front porch for some reggae, tacos and a beer. It was this day that I first thought about Toast the Coast as the perfect tagline for the apparel I always wanted to design. And so, Hunter Coastal Supply began. Some of our designs are inspired by our trips to Sullivan's Island, Folly Beach and Isle of Palms. "Toast the Coast" embodies Hunter Coastal Supply because we are lovers of living this coastal life and the good times and vibes that come along with it. Our designs have a coastal vibe. Some locally inspired, some not.  no matter where you live they can be enjoyed by anyone that has that coastal vibe inside them as well. We'll see you out at Station 22 some day and we will toast the coast together. Cheers
