We support making things in the USA because it offers the possibility for people like us to make a living by making quality products for you to enjoy. It's a win-win. Here are a few of our favorite brands made in the USA:
Leatherman makes multi-tools in Portland, Oregon. Keep one handy to change out your skateboard, fix a gouge in your base, or to whittle some homemade Christmas gifts.
2) Topo Designs
When you're skateboarding on snow, choosing the right clothes can make or break a session. Topo Designs makes clothing & gear in Denver, Colorado. All of their products are made to withstand the elements and keep you looking right.
3) Signal Snowboards
When we're lookin' for powder or some longer runs, we rely on our homies at Signal Snowboards. The company was founded by snowboarding legend, Dave Lee. All of their boards are made in California by hardworking, creative people. See further proof in their Every Third Thursday video series.
4) Juniper Ridge
Juniper Ridge distills fragrances from the wilderness. Their hands-on, small-batch process yields some mighty good smells. Camping and skateboarding go together like lamb & tuna fish, so we're big on the Campfire Incense. Can't go wrong smelling like the outdoors.
5) Icon Snowskates
We're proud to say that our handmade skateboards for the snow are built one-by-one in our shop in Massachusetts. Stephen Plays builds the vast majority of our boards start-to-finish with a fine-woodworking level of craftsmanship. Matt Plays and the rest of our team put our snowskates through the wringer to ensure they can handle the spots you're hitting and the tricks you're throwing.
