Activist - Ryker Moriwaki

What’s your understanding of noRep?
My understanding of noRep is a company who isn't just a company who sells clothing. It is a company who cares about the customers who buy their products and also the environment. noRep is a company who spends quality time working on their clothing and makes sure it lives up to its standards.

What are your goal/dreams?
One of my main goals is to one day produce a film that is exciting and will also be something new for everyone to see. I want to create a film where people will be like "wow I haven't seen anything like this !" A dream of mine that I would love to come true, is to go to Tahiti with my friends and just tear up the surf over there. Another dream would be finding a secret surf spot, where only my friends and I know about and just get drained.

What does Activism mean to you?
Activism to me is a term used to describe people who think outside of the box. People who aren't just ordinary and want to stand out and be different.

What's the one thing you'd like to shoot?
The one thing I'd like to shoot is sea life. I love photographing turtles especially because it is my amakua and they are such beautiful creatures.

Have you got any hidden gems? Any photo your are most proud of?
I'm proud of all of my photos because each photo has a different story behind it and I can remember what I went through to get the shots.

What pays the bills?
Currently I am 15 and I do not have a job. I usually get my money from birthday money and christmas gifts. I also do photoshoots for people and also get a little money from my parents.

How do u see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years I see myself pursuing my dreams and living my life to the fullest. I also see myself creating a film and obtaining my goal.

What's the 1st thought when you wake up in the morning - Today I Shoot, Surf or ???
The first thing that popped up in my mind this morning, was thinking about a dream shot I created and thought about. It's a picture of a super glassy wave and a rainbow in the backround.
