Coming soon to Endless River Adventures – DAKINE!

Are you looking for a blend of fashion and function to get you boofing with style in every sense of the word? Then we’ve got the brand for you! We are so excited to be adding Dakine to our retail line-up this season! And for good reason.

As described by adventure photographer Nathan Hughes, just as Sony is to sound and Budweiser is to beer, Dakine is a name inseparably intertwined with extreme sports. Spanning the holy trinity that is snow, water and dirt for 35 years, the company continues to nurture some of the World’s most idolized athletes and create their must-have equipment for snow-capped peaks to sandy-river beaches. With that said, Dakine is all about making “gear for people who love being on the mountain or in the water enough to have figured out a way to spend their lives doing it.” And if Dakine is the brand for professionals, then we think the pieces we have chosen to carry this season will be perfect for you too! Let me tell you why; the proof is in the pudding (aka – product descriptions)!
