California - USA, was the birth place of RockTape. The founder, Greg van den Dries, is a sport lover, loves to run, cycle and swim and with all of these sports there are always injuries involved. After a visit to a physical therapist they applied some kinesiology tape and he felt so good he started to research his "own" tape and that was the birth of RockTape.

Dr Gert Ferreira was first introduced to RockTape at the 2013 and 2014 Crossfit African Games and he fell in love with kinesiology taping but especially the brand of RockTape. Once they got RockTape back into RSA, he had to start using their tape again.
