1977 – 2017. Honor the past, celebrate the future. We’ve learned a lot over the years and we put that knowledge into everything we do. From the shapes of our boards to the linings of our jackets. We didn’t do it to be cool. We found a need for it, tested it, and made it. Build, rebuild, respect, progress. It’s what we do. Along the way there have been countless people, endless stories, and miles of adventure. It’s a catalyst for more. So go ahead and look back. Just always move forward.
