More Days In The Water.Dakine: Backpacks, Luggage, Board Gear & Alternative Sport Accessories
Dakine was founded by Rob Kaplan, a surfer that didn't just ride, but also loved to build and improve his gear. Kaplan hung out in Maui's North Shore, and often repaired surf leashes for surfers. After repairing plenty of leashes, word got out that he was the gear issue guru. Noticing how much of a setback it is to lose your board, Kaplan was inspired to create a leash that was tough enough to stand up against the roughest conditions. This is when Dakine was born.
Dakine doesn't just focus on surfing, in 1986 they moved their small company to Hood River, Oregon to seek out more adventure and connect with more action sportsmen. Access to snowboarding and other winter sports year round, Hood River would also attract big name professionals who trained in the off season during summer months. Getting major experience and feedback from other athletes on the mountain and the water, they are able to create and improve products every year that continue to make sporting more enjoyable.
We at OutlandUSA.com love Dakine packs, gear accessories, and their gloves because the durability. A few of the most popular backpacks by Dakine are the Heli Pro 20L, Campus 25L or the 33L, and the Explorer 26L. We also carry some of their travel gear, like their Split Rollers. We hope you'll agree that Dakine has a proven track record of quality and adventure.
