Who we are

Behind Gold Coast®

It all began with Oskar at a very young age; his obsession and passion for cars were noticeable by everyone around him. Even before obtaining a driver’s license, he was already detailing vehicles in his neighborhood. This became lucrative for him as he showcased his skills, laying the foundation for his entry into the world of business and entrepreneurialism.

His burning desire and passion were evident to his parents, and to this day, they can recount countless stories of Oskar and his connection with cars.

Oskar has been particularly meticulous about every car he has owned throughout his life. From a young age, he started modifying his vehicles, displaying a fearlessness in pursuing any customization he envisioned. Persistence and patience were the keys that allowed him to transform each vehicle into an exact reflection of his vision.

This passion and enthusiasm eventually led Oskar to the automotive industry. His journey began with his first official job at an Audi dealership in Ontario, where he worked as a detailer. His love for the brand deepened, especially when the all-new Audi R8 was released, and Oskar had the opportunity to drive one of the first ones in Canada. Furthering his expertise, Oskar gained additional training and experiences in the automotive world, specializing in areas such as Paint Correction, Polishing, Vehicle Wrapping, and Ceramic Coating. His journey extended beyond Canada, taking him to countries like Brazil, where he met his wife, Kalynka.

 

It all began with Oskar at a very young age, his obsession and passion for cars was noticeable by anyone around him. Early before even having a driver’s license he already started detailing vehicles around his neighbourhood, not only that, but also developing skills that would later be the key for him to enter the business and entrepreneurship world.
His burning desire & passion was very noticeable to his parents and even to this day they can describe countless stories of him and cars.

Oskar was also very particular with every car he has owned his entire life up to this day, he started modifying his own vehicles at a very young age, there were never limits he couldn’t reach. Persistence and patiences were keys to make every vehicle look exactly as he wanted.

Oskar’s passions and enthusiasm for vehicles lead him all the way to the automotive industry, where he got his first official job, at an Audi dealership in Ontario as a detailer, he fell in love with the brand even further, and during those days the all new Audi R8 got released into the market and he got to drive one of the first ones in Canada. Oskar also got more training & experiences in the automotive world with Paint Correction, Polishing, Vehicle Wrapping, Ceramic Coating, in Canada and other countries such as Brazil where he met his wife Kalynka.

Today, Oskar brings his wealth of experience and passion for perfection to Gold Coast Automotive, a high-level detailing shop that specializes in premium services designed for top-tier automobiles. His commitment to excellence and personal touch is reflected in every detail, ensuring that each client’s vehicle receives the thorough care it deserves.
Fueled by a burning desire and armed with a wealth of expertise and experience, Oskar made the pivotal decision to venture into entrepreneurship. Driven by the relentless pursuit of business opportunities and a quest to unravel the intricacies of “how to start up a business,” he recognized the incredible and unique talent at his disposal. Oskar envisioned that harnessing this talent to make cars exquisitely stunning would be his life’s purpose.

In 2017, Oskar transformed his vision into reality by founding his own business. Realizing the significance of his dream, he took the bold step of leaving his job and establishing his inaugural shop, OCD AUTO CARE,  in Orangeville, ON. Unsurprisingly, Oskar’s meticulous work quickly garnered acclaim, fostering an ever-expanding clientele who admired the transformative touch he bestowed upon their vehicles. Within the first year of business, Oskar not only doubled the shop’s size but also tripled the demand for his expertise. He had the honor of working on some of the most prestigious vehicles in the vicinity, solidifying his connection with his purpose and mission as satisfied customers continued to flock in.

With a burning desire combined with all his expertise and experience decided to open up his own business, he kept searching for business opportunities, and the “how to start up a business”
He knew that he had incredible and unique talent on his own hands, and the moment he could utilize it and make cars look incredibly stunning with his touch, then it would be life’s purpose.

In 2017 Oskar decided to open up his own business and make his dream come true. He decided to leave his job and open up his first detail shop called OCD AUTO CARE, located in Orangeville, ON.
It was no surprise that he achieved incredible results and an ever growing clientele that loved every work he performed on their cars. Oskar was able to double the shop’s size and demand of work by three times more in the first year of business. He also had the privilege to work on some of the finest prestige vehicles around his area. The customers kept coming and Oskar couldn’t be more connected with his purpose and mission.

With his expertise and experience continually expanding, so did the company under Oskar’s leadership. Operating a fully equipped state-of-the-art detailing shop with a team of specialized staff, he addressed all his clients’ automotive restoration and protection needs.

After three years, Oskar’s heart and passion for business showed no signs of waning. Together with his family, they embarked on realizing a life goal: moving to the picturesque British Columbia on the West side of the country and establishing another state-of-the-art shop from the ground up. Accompanied by his wife Kalynka and their three-month-old baby, Ayrton (named after Ayrton Senna), they relocated to the welcoming town of Kelowna.

As Oskar often emphasizes, “Wherever you go, success is within the person.” Following this mantra, he founded his second business, GOLD COAST AUTOMOTIVE®, from the ground up. Envisioning a larger shop in the heart of Kelowna, surpassing the one in Ontario, he aimed to provide services to the Okanagan and surrounding areas. True to his belief, Oskar once again created a stunning shop from scratch, this time in a whole new city and province.

His level of expertise and experience started growing, as well as the company. With a fully equipped and operational state of the art detailing shop, employing vehicle specialists staff, Oskar was able to help all of his clients with their automotive restoration and protection needs.

After three years, Oskar’s heart and passion for business kept growing, so he and his family decided to achieve one of their life goals, which was to move to the West side of the country, the beautiful British Columbia, and open up another state of art shop from the ground up. With a little three month baby (Ayrton, named after Ayrton Senna) and his wife Kalynka, they moved to a whole new province, the town of Kelowna.

As Oskar always says: “Wherever you go, success is within the person” he made from the ground up his second business GOLD COAST AUTOMOTIVE®. He envisioned a shop in the heart of Kelowna, bigger than the one in Ontario, providing services to all the Okanagan and surrounding areas. And as you believe, you shall receive. Oskar once again made another stunning shop from scratch in a whole new city and province.
