New Brand Spotlight: Analog

new brand spotlight, analog, analog beanies, analog accessories, skate, surf, snowboarding

In 2001, Analog was born in a style lab with the primary goal of creating unique designs that fell outside the lines of traditionalism. With an eclectic mix of team riders, styles, and inspirations, Analog approached snowboarding with fearlessness. This passion paved the way for Analog to make its mark on year-round apparel and accessories in 2003, starting with skate and moving into surf shortly thereafter.

In November of 2012, Analog transitioned back to a snowboard-specific brand and has continued to Liberate, Unify, Mobilize, and Resolve. Free from the tides of conformity, they remain dedicated to delivering a creative voice of expression. Transformed into a community driven against the predictable, Analog is committed to progressing the individualistic and fearless thread that binds them together as “Snowboarding".

Paddling forward to give back. OluKai is a brand that is deeply grounded to the ocean and the culture, history and community that surrounds it. This spring, OluKai held their interpretation of the traditional Hawaiian celebration, the Ho’olaule’a, on Maui’s north shore. The event blends elite competition with family-friendly cultural activities. They also gathered some of the world’s best SUP (stand-up paddle) and outrigger canoe paddlers to race the legendary 8-mile Maliko downward run.

The OluKai Ho’olaule’a is truly a celebration and expression of gratitude, inspired by the strong tradition of giving back in the Polynesian culture.
