                Our original boards were built using a limited supply of sustainably sourced Koa Wood, which is endemic to Hawaii. The Hawaiians used Koa to create the first surfboards 1,000 years ago, making Koa the legacy precursor material that led to modern boardsports.

                For 20 some years, we’ve held onto a small amount of our original stock of Koa. At the double-decade mark, the time was right to crack open the vault and create some tributes to the craftsmanship traditions that underpin everything we do.

Pushing past the hordes of tourists, the transplanted wealth, the performers, the hipsters, the valet class – past the muck, the grime, and the grease – you’ll find a core layer of youth, skating hard on and off the grid.
