In 1979 Rob Kaplan begins manufacturing the Dakine Leashes in Haiku, Maui, Hawaii. Maui's reputation for great wave conditions is the catalyst for this location. The DAKINE surf leash is designed for rigorous Hawaiian conditions and sets Dakine Bacpacks standard for innovative design and high quality. In Rob's words, "it was the first leash that you could pull a car with!" Whatever it could pull, it truly opened up previously unsurfed breaks around the world. 1980 - Pro windsurfers ask Rob to help build footstraps for their new wave boards; he had the sewing machine! Ho'okipa, the famous Maui north shore surf break literally located in DAKINE's backyard, becomes the international mecca for windsurfing's top athletes. It also proves to be an incredible test site for DAKINE products. This formula of top pros and the most rugged conditions becomes DAKINE trademark for product development. 1981-84 - DAKINE develops the 1st adjustable footstrap, seat harness, and waist harness defining the company as the leading innovator in technical windsurfing accessories. Innovations like the Coffin board bag begin a tradition for globetrotting pros using DAKINE bags and Dakine Backpacks to get their gear safely to events, beaches and breaks around the world.
