Kookbox pop up in NYC

Over the weekend Kookbox participated in a pop up shop in downtown Manhattan. I stopped by to feel up the boards and see what else Kookbox offers. For starters the boards are super legit. The fish and quad pin are in collaboration with Jeff McCallum and are super sweet. Both seem like very useful boards for these parts. The space was small but the stoke was high. The Kookox website is under redesign but you can stay up to date with the latest on their Facebook page.

I picked up a Kookbox hoodie. They are fleeced lined made of heavy cotton and hand made in Canada. I'll write a review on this once the springs comes but so far it's keeping me quite warm. I also had my eye on there rubber tops that are made in Japan. Maybe for next summer. Kookbox is one of those companies that have style and quality all the while keeping it home grown and grass roots. I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next.

  1. Saw a guy killing it this summer on a stubby Kookbox twin. He was tearing around so fast on that thing, upon exiting the water he was set upon by a throng of surfers wanting to know all about the board he was riding.
