Born on the island of Maui, Dakine started with roots in surfing and its culture. Relocating to Hood River, Oregon, Dakine became immersed in the snow community. Catering to riders needs naturally lead to products being built for skateboarding. Dakine’s attention to detail comes out of necessity as these lifestyles all share a need for quality gear. Whether it's a Dakine Backpack or weatherproof snow outerwear, Dakine's products get you from point A to point B comfortably. The journey is as important as the destination and building functional and durable products ensures that whatever you’re traveling with will arrive safe and sound, ready to rip.
