    Manhattan Beach Team Meeting

    OUR GUEST SPEAKER!

    Find out how a small-town Minnesota farm boy (and (former Pro Snowboarder) went on to Founding a rapidly scaling successful conscious-minded essential products apothecary for men!

    CHAD P. LIESKE is the Founder at Lucky Bastard Co. Lucky Bastard Co. is a mindful skincare company based beachside in Venice, CA. As avid outdoorsmen not satisfied with what was on the market, these two brothers created products that would perform for them during all of their adventures. They've handcrafted a dynamic lip balm and most recently a premium "reef-safe" sunscreen without all of the harmful chemicals found in traditional sun care. The goal was to build a line of sustainable products that are effective and completely natural while leaving the lightest footprint possible. From their extensive work with the Los Angeles Mission (homelessness recovery center) to ocean conservation efforts, Lucky Bastard has ingrained itself as a staple of CA culture.
