Meet The Squad

The Uplifters, is the joint collaboration from Staci Woo,  a Northern California native and designer of California lifestyle brand Woo, & Mike Badt, a Santa Monica native,  connoisseur of all things casual and a certified expert in Santa Monica beach lifestyle.

Together they have created the Uplifters, inspired by the California beach culture and by the free spirit of the original Uplifters hijinx hucksters who created a unique enclave in Rustic Canyon. The Uplifters was a social club originally founded in 1913.  Their motto was "to uplift art and promote good fellowship".  This creed has been carried forward in the form of this Santa Monica based lifestyle brand.  We invite you to join The Uplifters Ranch community.
