Founded in Hawaii and located in Hood River, Oregon. Dakine makes equipment to get you from the water, to the mountain and every journey in between. #DAKINE - Trusted Since 1979. BORN IN HAWAII Dakine got its start on Maui's North Shore in1979 when our founder Rob Kaplan started making better surf leashes so his friends could ride bigger waves. From these humble beginnings, we expanded to solving other gear problems for surfing, snowboarding, skiing, mountain biking, wind and kite, and travel. RAISED IN HOOD RIVER Located in Hood River, Oregon, in the shadow of Mt. Hood, on the shore of the Columbia Gorge and in the heart of the Hood River wilderness trail system-riding every day is true to our being. Our reputation as a rider-driven brand is built on innovation though creating, testing, breaking, fixing and testing again. It's lead to breakthroughs large and small, from the original surf leash to the Heli Pack and the Party Bucket. NEVER DONE With a foundation built on 39 years of innovation, we're still at it. We live it. Build it. Test it. Improve it. Then find new ways to do it all over again next season. 1979 Outdoor and sporting goods company (855) 411-4604
