The name Sitka derives from the mighty Sitka Spruce, a tree naturally drawn to the rugged shorelines of Western Canada; the company Sitka grew from the same endeavour.
With roots planted deep in a seedy garage used for shaping custom boards, Sitka grew and branched out into our current state with consistent perseverance and strength. Surfing and shaping is at the heart of the company and has inspired a similar passion for the other things we design and produce as well.
As unique as the local graphic artists, clothing designers and shapers involved in making Sitka what it is, the clothing delivers a punch that matches the distinct stylings of our family. The West Coast Canadian environment that Sitka was born into and remains today provides a captivating and engaging canvas from which to draw inspiration. The lifestyle on our BC island requires not only comfer-cozers to huddle around a campfire in the woods in, but also a pinch of blamo to explode onto the streets of the big cities in. This versatility is made by and for our roaming Sitka sapling family.
Sitka was established in 2002 by Andrew Paine and Rene Gauthier. Since that time we’ve grown a full men’s and women’s clothing line, a skateboard line and a full quiver of surfboards to stand up to any condition. We’ve grown into a tight-knit family thriving off each others’ stoke, and are always looking ahead to our next adventure.
