The technical progression and fashion fusion that define 686 are a reflection of the life experience of Mike Akira West, the founder and creative visionary of the brand. 686 has been independently owned and operated from the beginning, and Mike West is still sitting at the helm as the CEO and creative mastermind. By choosing to not sell out, 686 is able to pursue a creative and technical vision without answering to the demands of shareholders and corporate suits. This freedom has allowed for progressive fashion.

Capita Snowboards

Capita represents youth, passion, progression, style, dedication and durable, reliable product. It’s a hard job pushing progression boundries, but Capita does this better than anyone else. Former Burton rider Jason Brown and Blue Montgomery founded Capita Super Scary Corporation in 2000 with the intention of turning the snowboard manufacturing world on its heels. They succeeded in doing so by creating an incredibly versatile line of snowboards that are multi award winning and at the cutting edhg of freestlye riding.


The Coal story starts back in the cold winter of ’97 with a little knit beanie – former pro-snowboarder Brad Scheuffele’s handmade gift from his girlfriend. 5 years later, Schueffele found help from his industry and friends to recreate the perfection of that hat for other people, and in ’02 the Coal brand entered into our shops. Fuelled by the fact that existing headwear is often approached as no more than an accessory, Coal realises that no single piece of clothing can express your individuality like a hat or a beanie.
