Founded in 1979 in Hawaii by Rob Kaplan, the Dakine brand has gradually established itself as a reference in the field of board sports with its range of products, backpacks and original accessories both streetwear and snowwear. The company (whose name "da kine" means "best" in Hawaiian) started by marketing a first leash for surfers which quickly became popular with sportsmen and women. Thanks to the quality of its products, the brand gained notoriety and expanded in North America from 1986, setting up in Oregon and offering equipment for outdoor sports, surfing and mountain. It is now a worldwide success with ever safer and more innovative products.
Board sports are at the heart of Dakine's business, which provides the best products and accessories on the market for surfing, skateboarding, skiing, snowboarding, cycling, kitesurfing and windsurfing. It was the invention in 1998 of the Heli Pro backpack, developed with pro riders, that made the brand famous, becoming a true standard throughout the world, timeless and often imitated since then. Also in 1998, its Park bag was the first model to include a means of carrying a skateboard vertically. By collaborating with well-known sportsmen and women, Dakine seeks to go further with its equipment adapted to the slightest needs of users.
An essential brand in the field of extreme sports due to the excellence of its products, the company offers its customers a lifetime warranty for any manufacturing defect on any of its equipment. With its original and functional accessories, Dakine is aimed at both professional and amateur athletes. It also offers quality product lines for children. Among the products marketed by Dakine, some have been able to innovate and become reference models. This is the case of the Surf Pack, with its waterproof compartment, or hiking backpacks integrating a snowboard transport system. At present, the brand's two main areas of preference remain equipment for surfers and technical clothing dedicated to winter sports. Dakine thus offers a wide range of backpacks, snowboard and surf covers, surf leash and snowboard accessories. Dakine ski jackets, gloves and pants are among the best on the market.
Over the years, and thanks to its growing popularity among sportsmen and women, the Dakine brand has expanded its range of products. Original and comfortable streetwear collections have thus been offered, standing out from the competition by the quality of the products and their characteristic design. Numerous accessories have been added to the clothing created by the brand, such as caps and hats. A true reference for sportswear lovers who can also be worn on a daily basis, Dakine has been able to combine comfort and design in its products like no other brand. Ideal to be worn on holiday, the Dakine collections include both summer and winter clothing.
The brand's snowwear products enjoy an excellent reputation thanks to the use of original insulation techniques and the fabrics used, which guarantee perfect heat regulation whatever the outside temperature. Extremely comfortable, the Dakine pants and jackets designed for snowboarding include all the finishes (high performance fabric, integrated ventilation system, waterproof zippers, various protections) allowing you to practice your favorite sport in the best conditions. By using the latest technologies and proven quality materials, Dakine aims to offer the best products for the practice of winter sports. Accessories are also numerous, with mittens, hats and ski gloves. Riders will also find what they are looking for among Dakine's backpack models dedicated to freeride, luggage elements specific to the practice of extreme sports and cover models for transporting all types of equipment. Finally, Dakine has a bikewear collection that is very popular with cyclists, including jerseys, bike shorts and gloves with an original design.
In addition to sports equipment and clothing collections, Dakine has launched a range of travel products that allow you to carry your belongings safely while enjoying the brand's unique style. You can find a wide range of backpacks, travel bags and wheeled suitcases bearing the famous brand's logo. As always at Dakine, the quality of the products is always in the spotlight.
