10barrel 10 BARREL 10 Barrel Brewing was founded by three fellas in Bend, Oregon in 2006 who wanted to brew beer, drink beer and have a ton of fun while doing so. 10 years later and we’re still following suit. Whether we’re shredding the mountain, drinking cold ones by the fire after work or floating down the river. We always have fun with a beer in hand. www.10barrel.com
Victory VICTORY KOREDRY In 1978, two young surfers, Marc Spitaleri and Greg Wade, bought a small wetsuit company to try their luck to make a big name in surfing in Huntington Beach. Over 40 years later and we're still here, but time stands still for no one and through the years we've grown and adapted: we switched from wetsuits to rashguards, and went from surf to SUP and beyond. Now we've moved on to something bigger and even better- Victory Koredry. Working with a great US mill, we created an innovative new product that is both water-resistant and breathable and dried fast, making it perfect for most water sports which we knew well enough coming out of surf. But we found out that SUP was a different kind of playground than old-school surf, and we've had some fun in this fast new market. www.victorykoredry.com
