Jerrod L. Pinder,  Artist,  Vancouver Island, Canada  

Jerrod  is originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  In the 1980’s he settled with his family to Vancouver Island permanently.  On moving to the island he instantly fell in love with the west coast, and all its beautiful surroundings.

Jerrod’s career began in engineering, and manufacturing for over a decade.  He began over the years to work with other artists combining technical design with physical  art.  Several commissions have been done for a variety of clients across North America, and Europe.

Many of his designs are inspired by his love for the ocean and wildlife on Vancouver Island, and across British Columbia.  Jerrod is an avid sport fisherman, and many of his designs reflect his passion for the west coast.

About Us

Our Story

Ruggidcoast originally started with an idea to bring a new line of Canadian made products for sport fishing and the outdoors.

While creating some of our products we started to work on a number of custom metal projects with our customers.  Many of these projects involved working with local artists, and different designers.

As the business started to change Ruggidcoast started to design a number of custom metal art for various clients, and it grew from there.

As a result a new line metal artwork was created with the help of local First Nations artist Trevor Husband.

Our Success

Today Ruggidcoast has line of unique of west coast,  First nations, and home decor metal artwork.

Many of this artwork is showcased in a number of galleries and gift shops across BC and Washington State in the US.  Many of these art pieces have also been sold as far as Europe and Asia.

In addition to our artwork we still continue to develop products for the sport fishing and outdoor community.

We also continue to be very active supporter within the sport fishing community, and an advocate for Pacific salmon survival.

Each product and artwork we sell a portion goes directly to the Pacific Salmon Foundation for salmon enhancement projects.

Our Quality

All of our products are designed, and manufactured locally on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. 

Everything we carry is 100% Canadian made.

We believe it is important to keep our manufacturing and design within Canada so it benefits our local economy.

The spelling our name Ruggid is for a reason .  The "i" in Ruggid stands for our island (Vancouver Island) to remind our customers where our products come from.
