The Dakine Success Story
The enthusiasm for surfing led Dakine founder Rob Kaplan to develop the first leashes for surfers. So he founded in 1979 the company Dakine in Haiku on Maui, Hawaii. Over the years, the product range grew and the action-sports brand established itself worldwide as the top brand for windsurfers and surfers. Meanwhile, Dakine was able to make a name for itself in other extrem-/ fun-sports such as skiing, snowboarding, biking, kite and skate. The headquarters of Dakine is now in Hood River, Oregon, USA, which is also known as a mecca for surfing, outdoor, adventure and mountain sports. Therefore, Dakine will always pursue the feeling of freedom.
