Dakine was founded with purpose in 1979 to fill a need for the local Hawaiian surf community, every day since its founding, Dakine’s progression has come from purpose-built product. In the eighties there was a need for an essentials-only snowboarding backpack, so we made the first heli pack. Now over thirty years later this tradition has continued. From backpacks to travel gear, gloves, mitts, tuning gear, outerwear and more, we build products proven to last and trusted to give anyone on-hill a better experience.
