Interview with Ryan from F*ck The Taxman

Todays interview is with Ryan from F*ck The Taxman, the shark themed clothing apparel company that isn’t afraid to make a statement! As spearos, fishos and almost everyone that harvests from the sea will encounter the dreaded taxman, it’s something we can all relate to! That feeling of being sharked just as you’re reeling in that prize fish really makes you say “F*ck the taxman!”. We chat with Ryan and find out the story of the brand and some funny things along the way.

F*ck The Taxman is now a major sponsor to the Noob Spearo Podcast! Grab some of Ryan’s awesome merch and get a free hat when you use the code NOOBSPEARO.
