The brand DAKINE
The Dakine brand has its original roots on the Hawaiian island of Maui and is pronounced [:dakein:]. "DaKine" means in Hawaiian slang as much as "that thing" and in a wider sense also "the best", which perfectly applies to the quality of Dakine products. Dakine just "the best" for you. Dakine features top quality products with extraordinary functionality, coupled with a great trend and fashion sense, such as in its practical and functional backpacks, travel trolleys and modern handbags. Dakine also develops products free of environmentally harmful PVC. The Dakine models and the color sample set each season always new trends.
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.
