Vibe Named #137 on the Inc. 500 List of Fastest-Growing Companies in America

Written by Lauren Nelson on August 15, 2018

We’re so excited to share that we made it on the Inc. 500 list of 2018, ranking at number 137! The Inc. 500 list recognizes the fastest-growing private companies in America and their contribution of jobs, innovative products and creativity to the national marketplace.

“We are incredibly excited to be a part of the Inc. 500 list!”, said Josh Thomas, founding partner at Vibe. “We’ve seen our company grow significantly in size, expanded our product line and watched our Vibe Tribe community grow and support us every step of the way.”

We started in 2013 to capture the middle market of kayak prices, between the low-cost beginner kayaks found in popular retail stores and expensive kayaks that dominate independent paddle shops. With a motto of “No drama. Just adventure.”, we have increased progress by encouraging a positive community among employees, customers, and partners. Many members of our Vibe Tribe are a part of the Facebook owner’s group of over 11k active users who give each other advice on the topics of fishing and exploration. On Instagram, with a follower-base of 27k, customers share photos of the fish they catch on their Vibe kayaks and how they customize their boats.

Celebrate with us by taking your Vibe kayak out this week, catching something rad and patting yourself on the back for being a part of this wild journey with us!
