I am the president and owner of GripFlip Inc..
My name is Gaston Hughes. I grew up in Wilmington North Carolina approximately 8 miles from the Atlantic Ocean and have many fond memories of fishing with my father.
I was in the construction industry for over 25 years when the great recession session hit. The slowdown in construction gave me enough time to develop the GripFlip. In March of 2014 I received a patent and decided to start working on it full-time. A little over 2 1/2 years later the first two models of the GripFlip became available for the consumers.
