Inside Dakine

Discover the inner workings of the iconic extreme sports brand from the Pacific North West.

Just as Sony is to sound and Budweiser to beer, Dakine is a name inseparably intertwined with extreme sports. Spanning the holy trinity that is snow, water and dirt for 35 years, the company continues to nurture some of the World's most idolized athletes and create their must-have equipment for snow-capped peaks to sun-burnt beaches. Beginning on volcanic shores back in 1979 on Maui, Hawaii, Dakine found its way to the foot of another volcano, this time on US mainland in 1986... now residing under Oregon's towering Mount Hood.
