Red Rum was created with the intent on providing quality products those who live an active and tropical lifestyle. We at Red Rum are dead-set on spreading positive vibes, the ‘spirit of aloha’ coming from Hawaii and the message of “la pura vida” from Costa Rica. “In those places I encountered unique cultures that’s positive vibration irated beyond the land and the surrounding seas, sticking with me upon my return to the mainland”, says founder/artist Daniel. “Both places radiated messages of good, respect and well being”.

History of Red Rum International
Red Rum International was founded by artist and tropical lifestyle enthusiast Daniel ‘Del Sol’ in 2013 upon his graduation from college. Daniel grew-up in Largo, Florida where he was an athlete, participating in sports such as martial arts, football, surfing, skimboarding, scuba diving, fishing and spearfishing. He earned athletic and academic scholarships to Jacksonville University where he competed for 5 seasons in American Football. When not in a particular sports season, Daniel was a frequent traveler of tropical destinations throughout the tropics including Hawaii, The Bahamas, Mexico, Puerto Rico and the Florida Keys. Today he is the back-bone of the company, being personally involved in many of the day-today operations of the business.
Red Rum International was not started alone however. In the few years leading up to the official founding of the company in 2013, Daniel’s classmate and team mate Layne McCombs of Naples, Florida was a long-time supporter and key figure head in the development of the brand in its pre-conception stages. Red Rum was the topic for many school projects and brainstorming sessions which helped shaped the beginning of the brand. After a 2 year hiatus, Layne McCombs has since returned from his International adventures to assist in the corporate activities of the brand.
In 2014 Red Rum welcomed on a new addition to the brand, Greg Prompovitch formerly of Herndon, VA as an independent distributor of Red Rum International gear. After 2 years of hard work and dedication Greg was inducted into the business as a shareholder. Greg is a reggae music and tropical lifestyle enthusiast who over-sees many of the event operations of the brand. Having toured the country 2-times with Reggae-bands and Red Rum alike, you will most likely see him at any events attended or hosted by the brand!
